Jumptown 2.0 and Ninetails Lockdown Dynamic Events Return for Star Citizen Free Fly from Feb. 17-25
Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), developer of Star Citizen and Squadron 42, is a new kind of independent studio dedicated to delivering AAA games outside the established publisher system. Founded in 2012 by renowned game developer Chris Roberts, CIG is shifting the paradigm of game development towards a more inclusive process, offering its global community an unprecedented level of visibility and engagement through granting ongoing access to a product in active development.
Following the introduction of new content, ships, and continued improvements to in-game systems with the Dec. 22, 2021 release of Star Citizen – Alpha 3.16: Return to Jumptown, developer CIG is inviting players to 2022’s first Free Fly event. Star Citizen will be free to download and play for the duration of the event, including free access to a wide array of ships, discounts for select Starter Packages, new Referral Bonuses, and more. This Free Fly also includes the ability to take part in two exciting Dynamic Events. Jumptown 2.0 recreates the renowned fan-favorite event where players join law enforcement or criminal factions in large-scale battles over lucrative drug labs across the Stanton System. The Ninetails Lockdown event finds the criminal Ninetails gang locking down a space station under the control of Crusader Security. Players can choose to side with the Ninetails gang or ally themselves with the security forces as they battle to end or continue the lockdown.
During the Free Fly event, players can enjoy testing the following ships for free:
Pilots looking to grow their fleet or acquire a Starter Pack can also take advantage of limited time discounts. Additional information about discounts can be viewed on the Star Citizen website here. The event includes the release of updated Referral Bonus rewards, granting both referring and referred players a free Lodestone armor and sniper rifle set from Quirinus Tech and Gemini.
The Star Citizen Free Fly event is scheduled to begin today, Feb. 17 at approximately 08:00am (Pacific Standard Time) and will run through Feb. 25. Star Citizen Starter Pack discounts are also scheduled to begin on Feb. 17 and will run through Feb. 28.
To take full advantage of today’s Star Citizen Free Fly event, veteran pilots planning to crew up with friends are encouraged to share their referral code for a bonus 5,000 aUEC, and free Lodestone armor and sniper rifle set from Quirinus Tech and Gemini. New pilots ready to begin their journey in Star Citizen should also visit the Welcome Hub for helpful resources.
