Long ago, in the ancient times of 2013, Red 5 Studios MMO Firefall was looking like it would live up to its name, and not in a good way. All PvP had been suspended, and even before things got to that point, the game's Jetball PvP mode was attracting less than three percent of its playerbase. That changes July 29 though, when Firefall exits open beta and experiences its official launch, bringing with it a ton of new content.
First, those interested in blasting their fellow humans in the face should know that PvP will return in the form of an open world tug-of-war featuring resource collection and base captures. The launch update will also open up new areas to explore, which will "quadruple" the size of the environment, according to Red 5 CEO James Macauley. "The update we are releasing for launch will be the largest update we have ever had," Macauley is quoted in a related press release.
Firefall will be free to play upon launch, but if you're desperate to see these new changes sooner, you can purchase an early access pack for $30 or $100, each of which come with a bevvy of in-game goodies.
