The Universe Awaits
Feel the speed, power, & versatility of this year's community favorites, as you blast into Star Citizen for free.
Every year, Ship Showdown sees the community crown the top ship in the 'Verse, and this year they're off to an epic start.
As Phase 1 of the competition draws to a close, and the dust settles... our sweet 16 emerge, moving on to Phase 2 of the competition in head-to-head bracket-style madness!
In addition to moving on to the next phase of the competition, all 16 ships selected by the community will be available for you to try during a two-week Free Fly event. After all, there's no better way to decide which ship is champion material than to take to the skies and test-fly them for yourself.
Hop into the 'Verse via the steps below and find out why the community dubbed these 16 ships the best of the best. And if you're looking for a little extra help to get started, be sure to check out our Welcome Hub , where you can learn the game and hone your skills in the cockpit and beyond.
Last but not least, to celebrate the competition, for the duration of Ship Showdown we're offering Discounted Starter Packs - so if you want to keep playing after the Free Fly ends, now's the best time to jump in the cockpit.
