'Firefall' to get open beta

Red 5 Studios have announced that their upcoming MMO shooter title, Firefall, will be getting an open beta in July.

In a statement to VG247, Red 5 Studios says that the open beta will kick off on July 9 with the following details:

- 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.

- Melding Exploration: By raising city power levels and unlocking special dropships, players will finally be able to enter and explore pockets of the deadly Melding energy storm surrounding New Eden.

- Chosen Instances: Fortifying the open world allows players to take the fight to the Chosen, driving back the hostile alien race in epic new battle instances.

- Crafting and Progression: Players will continue to see major additions to crafting and Battleframe progression (including the new UI).

Red 5 Studios boss man James Macauley stated;
“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.”
