After almost two years in closed beta and numerous reworks to the various progression systems, Red 5 Studios has finally announced the open beta date for their MMOTPS Firefall. The sci-fi open world shooter will enter into open beta starting on July 9th. During the open beta Red 5 plans on adding new features and content including an episodic story campaign, more dynamic missions, world events, and open world PvP.
“ We’re incredibly excited to be nearing what we consider to be the most important stage of Firefall’s development – Open Beta,” said James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios. “For us, Open Beta isn’ta traditional ‘marketing beta’, but rather an opportunity to include many more players in our community-driven development process. We’re looking forward to welcoming these new players into the community and continuing to build an amazing game together.”
Leading up to the open beta Red 5 plans on rolling out some major milestones starting in May. These milestones include; a new city power level system where players can receive bonuses and rewards by increasing the power level of major cities by completing local PvE content, melding exploration through the use of special dropships, Chosen instances and new crafting and Battleframe progression which includes a new UI.
