Firefall: Launches Today!

Announced four years ago, the MMO shooter from Red 5 Studios has finally arrived.

Years in the making, you can drop into the world of Firefall today! The action-packed MMO shooter is available now on the official site and Steam. Proud CEO of Red 5 Studios James Macauley had this to say:

"We designed Firefall to be our dream game, and now the team at Red 5 Studios is humbled and thrilled to see this dream become a reality with the launch of Firefall today."

Gameplay revolves around the use of battleframes, swappable "classes" that allow you to level multiple classes on a single character.

"Outfitted with customizable military-grade battleframes, players will be able to collect resources and equipment as well as craft their own upgraded arsenal of weapons and abilities. Players will also have the ability to switch battleframes and explore a different play-style at their leisure without having to create a brand new character every time."

If you'd prefer to spare the Chosen and crush fellow players, Firefall has a full continent of PVP.

"In addition to the campaign missions, quests, and dynamic world events, players will also have the opportunity to challenge one another on a brand-new PvP continent. Known as the Broken Peninsula, players will be able to engage other players in an attempt to secure valuable resources and territory control."

Since Firefall is "completely free-to-play," the game is funded through cosmetic and convenience upgrades. Red 5 also has $30 and $100 launch packs, with items like "an exclusive multiplayer vehicle, a digital soundtrack and a concept art-book."
