Red 5 Studios are ready to swing open the doors on the the open beta for the jet-pack fuelled MMO shooter.

The open beta will kick off on 9 July as development continues. The team are working on new content to flesh the game out prior to the open beta launch and new content will include:

  • 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.
  • 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).

“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.”

If you can’t wait for the beta, new players can pick up a founders pack and start playing now. Want to know more? There’s an FAQ online for the open beta too.
