Firefall kicks off Open Beta, Unveils Deliciously Cheesy Live-Action Trailer
Its out! Red 5's MMOFPS Firefall has finally been released. Usually when an MMO transitions from closed to open beta we see the addition of some new content, but Red 5 seems to think the last closed beta milestone update should tie players over for just a bit.
That isn't to say Red 5 is sending players on their way empty handed. A unabashedly cheesy live-action trailer has been released for Firefall. So cheezy in fact, I can't help but be reminded of the nineties power-ranger period live-action shows. The enemy Chosen's over-sized head only served to reinforce the nostalgic cheese vibes I was getting from the trailer. Experience it above.
While some developers tip-toe around what Open Beta means for their game, whether it be a "soft-release" or what have you, Red 5 has been very upfront with players. A news post on the game's official site, underlines how appreciative and excited the developers are, but they go on to stress that Firefall is still very much a work in progress. "You may experience things in game that are incomplete or not working" Red 5 says. "We would rather ship a product to you, our players, and gather feedback on that feature earlier rather than later to make sure we're on the right track".
Personally, I was hoping to see the explorable area of Firefall expanded upon once the game transitioned into open beta. As it stands, players are still somewhat confined to the starting region and new content has been slow to trickle in for veteran closed beta players. You can start playing Firefall now by visiting the official site here.
