The fourth and final round of the Star Citizen community ship showdown is underway, with four finalists vying for a chance to fly their ships in Star Citizen’s upcoming 3.0 update.
The star citizen ship showdown 2021 is a week-long free fly event that will feature the four finalists of its community ship showdown.
Fans of Star Citizen will be acquainted with the Ship Showdown, an annual community event in which fans vote for the finest ship in the game’s roster through a series of polls. That isn’t much to talk about in and of itself, but it is the event that is being utilized as a justification for another free fly event for people who aren’t familiar with Star Citizen.
New or existing registrants may use the code SHOWDOWN2021 to receive free access to the game’s current alpha 3.14 version and the four finalists of this year’s ship showdown: the C2 Hercules, the MPUV Cargo, the 600i Explorer, and the Mercury Star Runner, from now until Monday, September 27th. The game’s pledge shop is also commemorating the ship showdown, with the top 16 ships available for purchase until September 23rd and the last four ships available for pledge until September 27th.

Long-time MMORPG fans may recall that Star Citizen was initially Kickstarted in 2012 for almost $2 million, with a 2014 release date anticipated. It is still in an unfinished but playable alpha as of 2021, after raising approximately $350 million from players via years of ongoing crowdfunding and sales of in-game ships and other assets. It is now the most crowdfunded video game ever, and it has been met with unwavering support from fans and skepticism from detractors. Squadron 42, a co-developed single-player game, has also been frequently postponed.
Star Citizen kicks off a week-long free fly event featuring the four finalists of its community ship showdown. The winners will be decided by voting and the winner will get a free trip to Gamescom in Germany. Reference: star citizen invictus 2021.
