Firefall Open World PvP Zone: Broken Peninsula Announced

Firefall introduces their new Open World PvP combat zone: Broken Peninsula.

The Broken Peninsula is a resource-rich that has escaped the Melding, making it extremely valuable in the eyes of the various groups within the Firefall world. Players will be able to join one of the various teams vying for control of this territory and engage in the various battles for control.

Players joining the battle in the Broken Peninsula are automatically placed on one of a number of teams which each represent one of the game’s major corporations.  The number of teams will depend on the number of players taking part in the battle, but each team will have up to 20 players, and there will be between three and 10 teams in an area at any given time.

Broken Peninsula contains six large outposts and nine watchtowers, each of which has its own SIN network and each of which can be captured by any of the participating teams.  Once players have control, they reap the rewards by gaining access to a number of benefits including deployable turrets, repair kits and a variety of weaponized vehicles.

Although capturing outposts is a key part of a successful strategy, the primary goal inFirefall’s Open-world PvP is for players to gather as many resources as you can.  However, resource collection in Broken Peninsula works somewhat differently. When players gather resource inside a captured base, they do not immediately get credit for them. Resources must be transferred off site, and whoever controls the base wen that happens will be the ones receiving credit for them.

When playing in Broken Peninsula, competing players are not your only opposition.  The Chosen will pose a serious non-player threat.  This means that squads of Chosen will drop in and attack bases or thumpers in the area.  On occasion, players may even run into Chosen Incursions or Death Squads.

Firefall‘s open world PvP is primarily intended to be end-game content, and the NPCs and mobs are balanced to be max-level.  Players of lower levels are certainly more than welcome to participate, and those of a high enough skill level will likely be able to make an impact, but they will definitely have to tread lightly.
