Star Citizen Welcomes New Players to Foundation Festival

Exclusive New-user and Referral Programs, Veteran and New Pilot Guide Sessions for Shared Rewards, and More...


Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), developer of Star Citizen and Squadron 42, is a new kind of independent studio dedicated to delivering AAA games outside the established publisher system. Founded in 2012 by renowned game developer Chris Roberts, CIG is shifting the paradigm of game development towards a more inclusive process, offering its global community an unprecedented level of visibility and engagement by granting ongoing access to a product in active development.


The Foundation Festival, a month-long civic program aimed at strengthening community spirit, returns to Star Citizen from July 6-31. Returning alongside the festivities is the Guide System, an industry leading program that leverages the Star Citizen community at scale to connect the best veteran pilots with newcomers to onboard them to the ‘verse, supplementing the recently updated New Player Experience added to Area18 in patch 3.19. The Guide System covers 12 core topics including vehicle combat, mining, trading, racing, and more, rewarding veteran players with pilot cosmetics and new players with weapons and an ever useful Multi-tool set for successful completion of Guided Sessions. Further rewarding Guide System participants, players can build up more rewards by earning up to five unique sets of armor and weapons valued at over $80 by completing Guided Sessions during bonus weekends. A full breakdown of the Guide System categories and rewards can be found at


With a Free Fly event granting access to 12 ships from July 6-17, the recently improved new-player experience available in Area18, discounts on starter packs, updated referral rewards, and the Guide System brimming with in-game rewards, there has never been a better time to try Star Citizen and explore the ‘verse together. More information about the Foundation Festival and the updated Guide System can be found at the central Foundation Festival hub at
