Developer Cloud Imperium Games has announced that Star Citizen will be free from today until December 1 as part of the annual Intergalactic Aerospace Expo. There will be over 120 different ships to try out over the next 13 days, so if you’ve ever been intrigued by Star Citizen, now is a great time to dive in.
Meanwhile, at the expo itself, Cloud Imperium Games will also present six new ships coming to the game soon. They include the Aegis Redeemer and two variants of the Crusader Ares Star Fighter called Inferno and Ion. The Aegis Redeem is a gunship that is armed to the teeth and belongs in the middle of any fierce combat encounter.
The Ares Star Fighter Ion comes equipped with an S7 laser cannon and is best used in long-range combat, while the Ares Star Fighter Inferno features an S7 ballistic Gatling cannon that will excel in mid-range engagements. Regardless of which players choose, both are capable of severely damaging capital level ships.
The other three ships remain a mystery for now, although we know the dates for the two will be announced. Game makers Argo Astronautics will showcase their new spacecraft on November 25, while Musashi Industrial and Starflight Concern will unveil one on November 27.
