A star citizen Developer Cloud Imperium Games has released a new video showing off a new action game that will debut tomorrow in the game.
The new ship is called “Mirai Fury” and is obviously inspired Star Wars’ TIE Fighter. Mirai is a new specialized manufacturer and subsidiary MISC, and the Fury is essentially a pocket fighter with a cockpit and armament just like a TIE Fighter.
Another thing that unites it with the source of inspiration is the absence of Quantum Drive. It’s designed to be transported by a larger ship and flown out of the hangar when it’s time to fight.
This is actually one of the most relevant innovations in Star Citizen, which ensures the ability of vehicles and ships to transport each other as long as they fit, completely unhindered. A relatively large ship could carry several Furies and their pilots. At the first sign of danger, these pilots can board the Fury and take off to fight, then be recovered after the threat is defeated.
Two options will be available. The standard kit comes with weapons, while the Mirai Fury MX replaces the cannons with tons of missiles along with the addition of a blast shield.
Tomorrow you can fly both for free thanks to the free fly event, which will last until May 30 to celebrate Invictus launch week. Everyone will be able to simply register an account, download the game and play throughout the event, with a rotation of ships to freely enjoy during the daily rotation.
By the way, the event also allows you to try it latest build Alpha 3.19so this is a good chance to express your own opinion about the game, also thanks to an updated new player experience. In the meantime, you can check out the video below.

The number of registered users also recently surpassed 4.5 million and now stands at 4,581,089, although not all of them pay as many register accounts to access the free flight events. According to the latest information shared by creative director Chris Roberts himself in October 2022, 1.7 million players are actually paying customers. Of course, this number a few months ago is probably higher now.
