Firefall's Story Explained In Fancy Cinematic
I think they should have had a go at explaining it in semaphore, but instead they've gone for the fashionable route of a glitzy video which shows off the space-time rip story that serves as a backdrop to Firefall's territory-conquest alien-world crossover activities. Go take a look at that, below, and then at my preview, which is the most handsome preview you will read all day.
Firefall's story has been written by unpleasant sci-fi author Orson Scott Card. Which is a shame, because I suspect someone who actually needed the work could have done a better job.
