The lights are on
After a long development cycle, Red 5's free-to-play MMO/shooter
hybrid is finally available. Anyone with a Steam account and working PC can
download it today.
Firefall maintains the classic tropes of MMOs
(quests, skills, PvP, customizable characters) and places you on a future Earth. Your quest? To destroy the Chosen, an evil race of humanoids bent on destroying
what's left of humanity. The game also promises certain
elements of procedurally-generated content as well.
We had a chance to play a bit of Firefall last
year. You can reach our impressions here. The game has undergone some
changes since then, however.
Firefall launched yesterday, July 29, on PC. You can
find the game on Steam.

Looka like a really fun Sci-Fi mmo/shooter. I'm definitely going to try it out.
I played Firefall in the closed beta almost a year ago.
It was a great game, fun, creative, nice progression and crafting gameplay. And the pvp was also very fun.
Then suddenly everything changed. It was like they brought in an entirely new team of developers and had them just change the entire game.
The core values and gameplay mechanics were totally re-done. The crafting system, gone. PvP battlegrounds, gone. Old progression and skill trees, gone. All the gear you had and experience points, gone.
