Star Citizen, the upcoming star-faring adventure from Cloud Imperium games, is opening its doors to all. Players can now try Star Citizens for free as part of the title’s annual Ship Showdown celebration.
While it might still be in development, there are plenty of opinions on CIG’s Star Citizen. Cloud Imperium Games is soon to settle at least some of those discussions as part of the month-long Ship Showdown event. During this time, the Star Citizen community around the globe gets to vote for their favorite ship designs and spacecraft in this ever-expanding universe, settling the argument about who has the coolest design for another year. As an extra bonus, Star Citizen is opening up the docking bays to all comers with another Free Fly event throughout the week, all the better to scout out your own top picks for the vote.
Closing The Vote
To celebrate the final stage of this ship v ship competition, CIG is giving potential players an opportunity to get up close and personal with the remaining competitors. A new Free Fly event is now on and will run through Monday, Sept. 27. Star Citizen players can cast their votes on the Ship Showdown event page before Wednesday, Sept. 22, with the final winning vessel to be announced on Thursday, Sept. 23.
According to CIG, the final four most popular ships in this year’s vote are as follows:
- C2 Hercules
Utilizing the patented Hercules military-grade spaceframe and expanding cargo capacity, while sacrificing barely any firepower, the C2 has taken the private sector by storm. It has become the industry standard for racing teams, ship dealers and manufacturers, construction orgs, mining corporations, and even large-scale touring entertainment outfits.
- MPUV Cargo
The ARGO Astronautics MPUV-1C (commonly ‘Argo Cargo’) is a dedicated merchant transfer ship, a ubiquitous intergalactic stevedore. Vast numbers of Argo Cargos are responsible for loading and unloading goods onto massive long-haul transports and miners that cannot otherwise land on planets or drydocks.
- 600i Explorer
This multi-role luxury vessel from Origin Jumpworks features an exquisitely detailed hull design that balances performance and versatility in a sleek and timeless form.
- Mercury Star Runner
The Mercury checks all the boxes expected of a dependable courier vessel, and then some. If you need it there fast and unscathed, you can’t do better than the Mercury.
