Arena Commander Released! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Chris Robert's Cloud Imperium Games has released the highly anticipated dogfighting module for Star Citizen. Dubbed "Arena Commander," the first playable space sim portion of the game is an in-universe simulation within a simulation - like the TrainSim in Shotglass' bar. Backers of the Star Citizen crowd funding campaign can now head over to the Roberts Space Industries website, download and play a handful of single player modes including a free-flight mode and a gauntlet called "Vanduul Swarm." Multiplayer modes are available to a handful of lucky members. As the game servers stabilize and are stress tested the multiplayer modes will be available to more and more pilots. It's a hefty download though (12GB), so give yourself some time!

Arena Commander is published in the Star Citizen universe by Original Systems. You can read more about Original Systems here. It's a fun read that echoes the real life history of Chris Robert's time at Origin. This week's release has also shipped with a Wing Commander-esque in-fiction manual available here. For further info on how to use the mouse controls don't forget to check out the how-two vids below that feature the voice of our very own LOAF!
