Cloud Imperium Games offers a special treat. Starting on November 23, the Star Citizen alpha will be free-to-play for one week. During this Free Fly period, gamers will be able to join the Star Citizen’s Persistent Universe for free, and will have the opportunity of trying out a different ship every day. Now is a special time for the Star Citizen universe due to the launch of Hurston, the game's first explorable planet.
To celebrate the release of Hurston, Star Citizen’s first explorable planet, and commemorate our anniversary, we’re launching a Free Fly event of unprecedented magnitude.

From Nov 23 through Nov 30 you’ll have the chance to try out every flyable ship and operable vehicle in the game for free. Here’s how it works:

During the promotion, anyone can join Star Citizen’s Persistent Universe for free. You’ll be able to experience Star Citizen first-hand, but to get out there and start exploring, you’re gonna need a ship.

Starting on November 23rd, every day at 8am PST, a different ship manufacturer in the game will make its entire flyable fleet available for a 24-hour test flight period.

There may also be some surprises in store for those of you who make the trek out to Hurston and see what Lorville’s all about, as well as some fun interactive activities here on the website, so stay tuned.
Some footage of the Hurston planet can be seen in the keynote below:

On a related note, Star Citizen has now raised over $200 million in funding. In total, over two million gamers have contributed money to make the development of this game possible.
