FireFall: Review-in-Progress Part Three
Red 5's Firefall has been in our sights for some time, waiting for the time to play. With the launch of the open beta, that time has arrived and we've started our Review in Progress. This week marks our third installment and we take a look at the process of unlocking content.

What are Melding Pockets? Well, if you've never played Firefall the term might seem gibberish. The Melding is a sort of noxious gas that renders large portions of Earth inhabitable. It's also where the Chosen seem to stem from, and was accidentally "invited" to Earth when the Arclight crashed into Fortaleza, Brazil. Walk too far into it and you're toast. The idea Red 5 has is to let players slowly peel back the Melding through playing the game, unlocking more and more regions of the map (and ergo, more content). But from the start of the game, you can unlock special additional regions of the world (Diamond Head, Saragasso Sea, and Antarctica).

You can read part three here.
