About the Game

You take on the role of a human who survived an event known as the Firefall and fight both against the alien Chosen and push back the purplish energy known as the Melding. Suit up with Battleframes which offer different classes which you use to acquire resources to upgrade your equipment. Red 5 has been slowly developing Firefall as a free-to-play game with high-production value. In beta since September 2011, the team is ramping up in delivering a solid mechanics before rolling out PvE and PvP content.

The world is gorgeous, even if it's all gone to shit. Using the different weapons on your specific Battleframe feel very distinct whether you are playing an engineer, a biotech (medic) or an assault class. Using your suit's rapid burn jet packs also gives you an impressive amount of mobility on the battlefield.

Right now the content is limited to random events like eliminating a Chosen invasion pod, and Thumping. What's thumping you say? Well, you can call down an orbital drop of a thumper to your location, and it will begin pounding away to extract any minerals from the ground. Of course, the loud noises brings the planet's feral wildlife calling, and it's up to you and your friends to welcome them - with gunfire!

I really like the game but it is a little too demanding for those who have Nvidia GT540M cards!
