Jumping jetpacks! Firefall has finally flown the beta coop and fired up its thrusters, sending the MMO shooter soaring into full release. If the long development period has left you a little fuzzy on the Firefall details, Red 5 has provided a new trailer giving a bird’s eye view of the action you could encounter as a fully suited soldier for hire.
Of course, if you’ve been around the Copacabana block you may wondering what’s in it for you. Well to start, several new zones with biomes involving more than sandy beaches, a more streamlined leveling experience, simplified crafting and oh yeah! Giant raid bosses known as Titans, like the one teased at the end of the above trailer or this underground lava worm featured below:
As for those who enjoy PvP, may I suggest Planetside 2? Firefall of course, ditched its instance PvP a while back, but the MMO has added a brand new zone where the only rules around are the ones you govern yourself by. Those who brave this wild west can enjoy thumping for resources and securing bases while fending off rival groups of players in a zone built entirely with PvP in mind.
When it comes to long term appeal, it will be interesting to see where Firefall heads next now that the game has officially launched. Players interested in trying the changes out for themselves can download the game through Steam or on the official site here.
