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. PvP in the open world will take place on Broken Peninsula, an area that is attractive to players for its resource-rich environment. Players will be placed on teams of up to 20, with the area able to support up to ten teams of 20. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
Although capturing outposts is a key part of a successful strategy, the primary goal in Firefall's Open-world PvP is for players to gather as many resources as you can. However, resource collection in Broken Peninsula works somewhat differently. Gathered resources are not automatically credited to players. Instead, these resources are stored inside the base. What this means is if players have gathered a large amount of resources inside a base, but then another team comes and takes over the base before a successful transfer of resources takes place, the other team will get all of those resources.
When playing in Broken Peninsula, competing players are not your only opposition. By far the biggest non-player threats are the Chosen. The Chosen know of the value of the area, and they know that the Accord cannot afford the resources to properly secure it. As such, they will do anything in their power to prevent humans from transporting resources back to New Eden. 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.
