Latest Headlines for Firefall

  • Review in Progress #1

    For all intents and purposes, Firefall "launched" in 2013. But a lot has happened at developer Red5 since then, and much more has changed with Firefall the game since the departure of former CEO Mark Kern. For those reasons, we're re-reviewing Firefall over the next couple of weeks to paint a more accurate picture of where the game stands today.

  • Red5's Second Shot Nails Its Target

    I really liked Firefall last year when it went into open beta. But like everyone else, I saw the writing on the wall that Red 5 was having direction issues with the title, and it seemed like their MMO shooter would never quite make it out of the development seesaw it was consistently riding. Firefall was a game that didn't seem to know what it wanted to be.

  • Endgame Spotted in Giant Titan Battles

    As the launch date for Firefall approaches, Red 5 Studios is ready to reveal more information about the endgame. Titans will reside in their own special instances and require a team of up to twenty players to defeat.

  • A Second First Look

    Hopping back into Firefall's long-awaited relaunch, I noticed right away that they added a new tutorial. This one shows off and explains some of the various suits and then thrusts you into your first combat mission. It won't take long but it is only here to teach you the basics before you are tasked with some more advanced missions. Slowly nudging you to start the campaign.

  • Red 5 CEO James Macauley Interview

    Leading up to the launch of any game is both exciting and stressful for a development studio. The excitement stems from the obvious relief associated with a game finally reaching its goal, but the stress is sourced in the anticipation of how it will turn out. While both could be sensed when I visited Red 5 Studios in Laguna Hills, CA last week, the excitement definitely overshadowed all else.

  • Open World PvP Shines in New Trailer

    Red 5 Studios has released a brand new trailer to show how open world PvP action will be a big part of the Firefall retail release when it hits on July 29th.

  • Just How Much Has Changed for Launch? A Lot.

    If your first reaction to reading the title of this article was, "Wait, Firefall hasn't been released yet?" I don't think anyone would blame you. Originally announced way back in 2010, this MMO shooter has been struggling for the past few years to finally grasp hold of its original vision. From the overly convoluted original progression system, to a hampered PvP mode, nearly all facets of the game have undergone extreme renovations in the past couple years.
