Firefall Announces Open Beta Date

Today, Red 5, the development team behind the ambitious title Firefall, announced that their game will be entering open beta status on July 9th of this year. As a combination MMO/Competitive 3rd person shooter, this genre innovating title has already seen its fair share of attention.

“ 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.”

And community driven marketing process is right. Having seen first hand the changes that occurred in the closed beta, Red 5 seems to not be afraid of changing entire facets of their game based on community response. So what’s there to lose? A great game, where your beta comments can make a fundamental difference?

Not to mention if you’re already IN the closed beta. If you’re lucky enough to be included, you’ve got a bevy of exciting events rapping up that phase of development. Such as:

– 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).
