Firefall Open Beta Start Date Announced
Red 5 Studios have officially announced that Firefall will go into open beta July 9th of this year.
“We’re incredibly excited to be nearing what we consider to be the most important stage of Firefall’s development – Open Beta,” said James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios. “For us, Open Beta isn’t a traditional ‘marketing beta’, but rather an opportunity to include many more players in our community-driven development process. We’re looking forward to welcoming these new players into the community and continuing to build an amazing game together.”
New updates will continue to roll out until the release of the open beta. The final stages of the closed beta will offer a much more fleshed out Firefall experience than ever before. A few of the updates have been listed as the following:
- Melding Exploration: By raising city power levels and unlocking special dropships, players will finally be able to enter and explore pockets of the deadly Melding energy storm surrounding New Eden.
- Chosen Instances: Fortifying the open world allows players to take the fight to the Chosen, driving back the hostile alien race in epic new battle instances.
- Crafting and Progression: Players will continue to see major additions to crafting and Battleframe progression (including the new UI).
- City Power Levels: Players will receive new bonuses and rewards in the open world by increasing the power level of major cities through local missions and encounters.
