Red 5 Studios are getting "incredibly excited" as we near the official open beta period for their free-to-play MMO Firefall, a "skill-based vertical combat" shooter. Everything is set and ready for July 9th.
They have major milestones throughout May and June in the prep for open beta like introducing city power levels for bonuses and rewards as well as more crafting and progression.
The Firefall world is set 200 years into the future where players act as the last remnants of humanity after to fend off a mysterious humanoid race known as the Chosen.
"We’re incredibly excited to be nearing what we consider to be the most important stage of Firefall’s development – Open Beta,” said James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios.
“For us, Open Beta isn’t a traditional ‘marketing beta’, but rather an opportunity to include many more players in our community-driven development process. We’re looking forward to welcoming these new players into the community and continuing to build an amazing game together.”
Red 5 highlights upcoming content:
• City Power Levels: Players will receive new bonuses and rewards in the open world by increasing the power level of major cities through local missions and encounters.
• Melding Exploration: By raising city power levels and unlocking special dropships, players will finally be able to enter and explore pockets of the deadly Melding energy storm surrounding New Eden.
• Chosen Instances: Fortifying the open world allows players to take the fight to the Chosen, driving back the hostile alien race in epic new battle instances.
• Crafting and Progression: Players will continue to see major additions to crafting and Battleframe progression (including the new UI).
There are Founders Packages available to those who want a bunch of goodies before the official launch of the free-to-play MMO, such as reserving your name, permanent XP boosts and other swag.
