Firefall's second open beta stage invites players to change the world permanently
Bet you didn't know Firefall's open beta had stages did ya? Yes, apparently there are three, with the first one focused on core gameplay and stress testing. Now with the start of stage 2, Red 5 is asking players to venture forth into the recently un-melded areas of New Eden to destroy secret Chosen fortresses. Presumably this will also help Red 5 test the newly added offensive world mechanics.
All of the work done in stage 2 will culminate in the release of stage 3, whereby the entire Warfront will be unlocked, creating a full blown zone. The zone will introduce a new story-based instance and pave the way for the next chapter in the Firefall story. At this point the process will repeat, but for a brand new zone.
Players will get to vote on which Warfront to unlock next, letting the player decide what direction the war against the Chosen heads. Red 5 says that player's choices will change the world permanently. If players choose to neglect a Warfront it can give way to Chosen counterattacks, making the entire Warfront inaccessible for weeks or even months.
What do you think of staged zones?
