Firefall’s 48-Hour Beta Weekend Starts Today
Red 5 Studios recently announced plans to open Firefall; their action packed upcoming free-to-play MMO shooter, to the public.
Firefall’s Beta Weekend will be the first of three stress-tests occurring early this year. Originally, you could only play Firefall by requesting a beta code, but now you can spend the weekend fighting to survive a ravaged Earth, fragging your friends in a PVP match, and helping Red 5 make Firefall an even better experience.
After successfully completing a few controlled stress-tests late last year, we’re excited to move into the next phase,” said James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios. “This will be the first time that we’ve opened up Firefall’s servers to everyone. We’re really looking forward to gathering a bunch of new feedback and data that will help us build up to launch this year.
This weekend will feature the following:
- Skillshot Contest (Video) – Record and submit an epic skillshot video for a chance to win a prize pack filled with Firefall SWAG and Razer™ gear.
- Skillshot Contest (Screen) – Screencap a stylish skillshot for a chance at being featured on the official Firefall Facebook page.
- Community Unlock – Play during the weekend to unlock an exclusive, customized Battleframe decal.
- Livestream – Join a special episode of Firefall Live on TwitchTV to see Athene and Reese owning the competition with their own skill shots.
