Red 5 Studios have today announced that Firefall will enter Open Beta on July 9.
The company have also released details of the game’s final stage of Closed Beta testing, and also released an Open Beta FAQ to advise new players of the beta process.
James Macauley, Vice President of Development at Red 5 Studios, said in a press release;
“We’re incredibly excited to be nearing what we consider to be the most important stage of Firefall’s development – Open Beta. 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.”
Content that will be involved includes;
*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.
