Cloud Imperium is offering the latest alpha version of the game, Version 3.14.0. Among other things, Version 3.14.0 has an initial version of the Planetary Volumetric Clouds.
In this free-to-play build, gamers will gain access to six iconic ships, each giving them a taste of the distinct career paths and play styles awaiting them in the ‘verse. Additionally, players can experience the dogfighting action of Arena Commander and the intense FPS action of Star Marine for the duration of the Free Fly event.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
