The Chosen have invaded New Eden.
Firefall, the free-to-play MMO shooter from Red 5 Studios, is finally nearing its official release. The game recently entered its final phase of closed beta, which introduced a new PvP game type, Jetball, and a story-based episode titled Blackwater Anomaly, which has a fancy new trailer.
Blackwater Anomaly is Firefall's world-story reveal. In the story episode, groups of five have to venture outside of New Eden in to the mysterious Melding Storm that has taken over the world. There, players will have to learn more about the anomaly and find out who is behind the attack on humanity.
Firefall will enter open beta on July 9. To celebrate the launch, the WarCry team will be playing Firefall and streaming gameplay on July 11th, 12th, 13th, 24th, 25th and 26th from 4pm to 7pm EDT on Twitch.tv. We'll also be hosting a Firefall giveaway where fans can win one of 10 Operator Starter Packs ($35 value) or two Ares Starters Packs. Check out the official giveaway page for more details.
