So the Arena Commander Mode of Star Citizen just got launched and oh my god it's so fun.

Sorry but you can't say any game looks better than this right now.

"What you see is what you play". Nice one.

Also, dat frame rate. Well, there's still working on it so, cool stuff. This and Elite are getting me excited.

I think my computer also cried out in pain at the prospect of running it. Updating now.

Getting it when I get home

As much as I wanna try it asap, think I'll wait tell a few patches to make it stable.

#12 Posted by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

I was just watching a twitch stream of it, my goodness it looks so nice. The guy playing says it handles great with his HOTAS stick. *drools*

Work is killing me today...

There were a couple delays already. They wanted to release a stable build and have held it back.

Looks great!! I have to admit I am slightly intimidated by this game... but look forward to diving in

#15 Edited by Cloud_imperium (2167 posts) -

Wow . This looks AMAZING !

#16 Posted by Jeager_Titan (945 posts) -

It looks gorgeous. How are the control of the game? From what I saw it looks a bit clunky and the ship turn very fast. I hope they sort the controls out as it is a very early build.

Is there a linux client, or do I need Microsoft's abomination to play this?

#18 Posted by cfisher2833 (1540 posts) -

Watching a stream of it right now. Seems to be running fine. Must have just been an issue with the build when they were making the trailer.

#19 Posted by Effec_Tor (221 posts) -

This game looks amazing.

#20 Edited by MrYaotubo (2587 posts) -

Incredible stuff,this game has the potential to be one of the all time greats if they don´t screw it up.

Yea its only for windows

#23 Edited by MBirdy88 (7350 posts) -

Looking pretty decent for such an early build.

My concern though in the long run.... how do you even make space combat in MP or hell even SP complex and challenging.... i mean... it looks very casual at the moment.

I'll give it a try later on, been wanting to wait for a stable build so hopefully it's not to bad.

If this early version of Arena Commander is 10+gb I dread to think how big will the final game+S42 will be.

#27 Posted by CrownKingArthur (4026 posts) -

anyway glad this has finally arrived, i'll definitely be playing once i'm home.

#28 Posted by CroidX (953 posts) -

Going to try this ASAP once I get back

#29 Posted by melonfarmerz (1062 posts) -

Wait I'm really confused. Everyone said Arena Commander was a 12GB download but I literally just did a 200mb patch and I'm in. That doesn't even make sense...

#30 Posted by DarthRamms (327 posts) -

Finally the dogfights begins

#31 Edited by Bruin1986 (1195 posts) -

Game would murder my current rig.

When the 800 series Nvidia cards launch, I'm gonna pick up the "860" level card and play the shit out of this game though.

if you already had star citizen downloaded, like the hanger module, then it probably only had to download stuff it doesn't already have. eg: it probably already had your models, cryengine, etc.

Just kidding. It got me really hyped, with a "play now" button and everything. Then, when i clicked it, I got bombarded with a bunch of patches, 12gb total. Damn lol

you clicked it and got covered in arena commander

Awesome stuff and congrats to those playing early.

I'm waiting for the full release before jumping in, but love seeing the progress being made.

#36 Posted by foxhound_fox (87318 posts) -

Just played a bunch of the free flight today. The build runs way better on my computer now than it did. Still lags a bit (stable framerate is about 20-25 fps) but it's playable. Friend who hooked me up with my Freelancer is buying a new computer and is just going to give me his old one. He is a bit too generous.

The game is excellent even in it's current, buggy state. The attention to detail is extraordinary. I just picked up a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro flight stick ($40 CAD MSRP) and am just setting it up. Hopefully it is supported already and/or will be soon. This game is going to consume my life. And is just the kind of experience I've been waiting for in gaming I think.

Never has a gif so successfully captured what I'm feeling.

You should have to experience it. I hate it more than anyone. I offer him some money, and he just turns it down. He's very loose with his money, and it seems like he enjoys making other people happy.

#42 Posted by MirkoS77 (6971 posts) -

Call me in about 1-2 years when it's all finally done and FB Rift releases to support it. Then hopefully I'll have been able to afford a rig upgrade and will have the proper hardware to play it as it was envisioned in full. Not much for seeing it built and released floor by floor. Looks good regardless though.

#43 Posted by GarGx1 (2416 posts) -

I'm amazed at how stable the v0.8 build is, in single player modes anyway. Playing on high settings (don't want to fry my system ;) ) and getting a steady 60 frames, no stuttering or frame rate drops, for an early alpha build it's rock solid.

It does lose server connection quite frequently though but at the moment that isn't overly important to me, as I don't have multiplayer yet.

#44 Edited by naz99 (1120 posts) -

Yeah the performance on this for a pre alpha was totally surprising,in fact it was so good I managed to knock detail down from very high at 1920x1080 and set it to high and run it at 6000x1080,and that is on a 4 year old i7 860 and a 2 year old 7970 ghz.

I think delaying it was the best thing they could have done the difference between this and the December build is massive.

#45 Posted by CroidX (953 posts) -

Still downloading this game lol

#46 Posted by TheFadeForever (1676 posts) -

I'm almost finish downloading the game and man is it big. Hopefully I get a smooth and stable FPS.

#47 Posted by CrownKingArthur (4026 posts) -
