Looking to try out Star Citizen but haven't taken the plunge just yet? From now until April 16, you can try it out for yourself during the Star Citizen Free Fly Weekend, which lets you test out the game in its current alpha state for the low, low price of, well...free, hence the "free weekend" title.
If you use the code GetIntoTheVerse, you'll be able to fly around through space using several different ships, including the Cutlass Black, Aurora MR, or the Mustang. The Cyclone is even up for grabs this time around! Utilizing the ship of your choice, you can try out Arena Commander and Star Marine modes to see if dropping some cash on Star Citizen is something you'll want to do in the future.
You'll need to sign in with an existing Star Citizen account, then use the above-mentioned coupon to make sure you can download the client for free. Once you're up and running, you'll have all the way through Monday to explore the 'verse. Plus, any progression you make during the event will be yours to keep if you purchase a Starter Pack for the game.
You can find additional details on the event over at the official Star Citizen website, but you're probably already signing up, aren't you? See you in space!

For the next few days, Star Citizen isn’t just a punchline! Over the Friday the 13th weekend, you can try it for free. Go here to satisfy your curiosity. Although it won’t cost you any money, you will have to register a Star Citizen account. This means you’ll be counted among the Starites, or Citizeners, or Crobots, or Whale Wanna-bes, or whatever Star Citizen players call themselves. Now you’ll be part of whatever number the developer rolls out to demonstrate the game’s popularity. But now you can say you’ve actually played it without people thinking you threw a bunch of dollars into a hole.
