After a long and undoubtedly checkered development period, Red 5 has finally announced Firefall is nearing its official release date. Set to go live on July 29th, Firefall’s official launch is said to be much more than a mere rebranding from Open Beta. On top of introducing several major changes aimed at simplifying the MMO’s progression and crafting systems, Firefall will also receive its largest content update ever.
According to Red 5, the official launch update will quadruple the amount of world space in Firefall and add roughly 15-times the amount of content previously available during beta. New zones will be added at launch including Devil’s Tusk and a brand new open-world continent in which players can opt to participate in PvP while capturing, controlling territory, and harvesting resources. The introduction of open world PvP is a feature long requested by fans and represents the return of PvP after Firefall’s instanced based PvP was removed last year.
