Star Citizen Alpha 3.3 Loaner Rules

Backers who own ships not available in the PU (Persistent Universe) will receive respective loaner ships until those ship become "Flight Ready."

  • Loaner ships are not replacement ships. They are not intended to provide a 1:1 "best case substitute" for a ship that isn't flight ready yet.
  • Due to the current restrictions in Arena Commander, certain ships have a secondary loaner to allow them to play in all game modes.
  • As new ships become available the loaners can be substituted by CIG.
  • Loaners are not permanent additions to players accounts. They are temporary until ships become flight ready.
