Firefall Welcomes One And All


Here's a fun Firefall fact: everyone on RPS has access except John. For a while it was funny to chat about the game in front of him, talking about the fun we had gliding all over the lumpy land, dropping into battles against the giant bugs that roamed the cartoon landscape, setting up Thumper parties in the middle of nowhere. But eventually it just became awkward, so we stopped. The good news for him, and everyone else, is there's no longer a barrier of entry into Firefall: the free-to-play MMOFPS combo today dropped into open beta, so everyone can join in. There's a ridiculous live-action trailer to celebrate this fact.

I will pop-in and see what the influx of new players has on the game. It was a good game the last time I checked, though at this stage in the beta it's still far from done. It's a strange feeling to run out of content in an MMO, but then Firefall's beta is a tad different from most, with developers Red 5 still building a lot of it. There will be story stuff coming, hopefully later on in the year, but right now I wouldn't recommend grinding mission content or you'll soon run out. Best bet is to hop around shooting and exploring. It won't cost you anything.

Bad live-action trailer time.

And here's what the game actually looks like. This is new content that's come in time for the beta.
