Firing Up: Firefall Beta Patch Brings Sweeping Changes


I haven't dipped into Firefall since my excursion back in April, but I think now might be the time. Yesterday's patch has radically altered the game, as you can see in the update video below. Movement has been significantly changed, one of the classes has been dropped, a new one added. The biggest change, however, is that they've removed the traditional levelling system (one thing I felt sat awkwardly for the game) and instead given you experience points that can be spent on your battleframe specialization as you see fit. As Red 5 had promised at the start of this beta, they are genuinely changing the game based on how players respond to it, and I think they've shown some impressive responsiveness and agility. I look forward to seeing where they go next.
