Jetpack It All In Come July: Firefall Open Beta


I'm hoping that Firefall's co-op PvE focus will prove to be the antidote to my months spend exploding dudes in the purely-PvP Planetside 2. I checked out Firefall's closed beta some months back, and very much liked what I saw, and I also met some of the team last summer and was impressed by Scott "Tribes" Youngblood's take on it all. I think this game could well be a Rather Big Deal indeed.

Come July 9th, you'll be able to decide for yourself. That's when the open beta will commence. I've jammed the latest gameplay trailer below, because that's what I do.

It's just a shame that Red 5 had to give work to a heinous bigot, when there are so many far more talented sci-fi writers out there who aren't so openly unpleasant.
