Firefall has finally made it to open beta and we've got boots on the ground in game to give our readers the very latest (and greatest!) first impressions to be found. See what we discovered about Firefall and then head to the comments to discuss.
After lots of tries, I really think Red 5’s nailed this.

Like Final Fantasy XI and XIV’s Job system, this is essentially playing one character with all of the classes available to you. Firefall’s been doing this bit for a while, but with the return of enemy dropped loot and the simplification of the crafting materials system suddenly the mix of straight up experience gain and gear progression means so much more.
