There are usually two kinds of betas, marketing stunts and actual betas where players provide feedback and small changes are made to the game based on that feedback. The latest patch for Firefall is neither. Red5 Studios, the developers behind Firefall, recently announced a new update for the game that would do a variety of things, namely CHANGE EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THE GAME THUS FAR.
Red5 released a video detailing the “MegaPatch”. In the video Red5’s VP of development, James Macauley talks about all the changes made to Firefall in the patch. Some of the changes include the removal of levels in Firefall (replaced with tech trees), a new class called the Biotech (replaces another class altogether), combat tweaks, crafting improvements, larger zones, new abilities and much much more.
If you have played Firefall before then I highly suggest you try it again since these changes undoubtedly will provide players with a very different experience. For all the patch details, check out the video above and let us know what you think!
