Red 5 is ready to unleash a patch of massive proportion in preparation for next week's Firefall open beta launch. Is it enough to make the game a great one? Find out what we think in this exclusive article and preview. Leave us your thoughts and ideas in the comments.
One of Firefall’s biggest hurdles is that, despite being a traditionally-controlled shooter, everything else about this MMO is different from other games in its chosen genre. Everything from progression to the crafting, the mission system to unlocking regions of the map... it’s all done a bit different than anyone is used to. And throughout the several years I’ve been participating in Firefall’s beta, I’ve watched its tutorial go from one end of the spectrum to the other. Finally, just a couple of weeks before its big “launch”, the team’s nailed the art of easing players into the game. I’d highly suggest starting anew if you’ve been away for awhile, because so much has changed in recent months.
