Firefall

Firefall is an upcoming free-to-play MMOFPS from Red 5 Studios, with highly stylized artwork and an emphasis on tactical combat. The game sets players in a world torn apart by the Melding, an energy storm that has spawned monsters called the Chosen. Players must now band together to collect resources, build weapons and vehicles, and utilize special nanotechnology armor suits called Battleframes to fight against the Chosen and reclaim the earth. Firefall is set to have PvE and PvP play, across a virtual game world spanning some ten square miles. Request your beta access over at the main website now!


FEATURES

  • Battleframes | Assault (soldier role), Biotech (healer/support role), Engineer (support role), Recon (sniper role), Dreadnaught (tank role).
  • Creatures | Aranhas, small predators resembling a cross between a spider and a scarab; Brontodons, giant roaming herbivores with tusks and dorsal spikes.
  • Environments | Dredge, the primary excavation site for crystite; Smokestack Desert, the intensely hot region of Melding-created flora and fauna.

Chris Whiteside was brought on to lead the studio and future development of Firefall.
