Firefall is a new free to play, sci-fi themed mmofps, developed and published by Red 5 Studios. The story starts somewhere around year 2200. An asteroid crashed into Earth and brought a new element: crystite. This new resource proved to be of endless power and energy. Humans found a good supply of crystite in the asteroid's home solar system. They started colonizing planets in order to get more crystite. The first colony was named Alpha Prime. Fearing that their fellow colonists will someday take over the world, the Earth scientists built a space ship called the Arclight. This ship was powered by crystite engines and was able to travel at unimaginable speeds. However, something went terribly wrong and, at the first launch, a space rift was created. That's when trouble started. Earth is barely habitable now and a new alien race poses a huge threat. As you can see, Firefall has quite a story behind it. Your Firefall character will be tasked with overcoming the aliens and closing the rift.
The environment in Firefall mmo is a heavily mutated Earth. There are still safe zones but most of them have been modified. New flora and fauna is spawning. Firefall has PvE missions that will take you through all the zones. Your Firefall character will start the game in Copacabana in Brazil. That's where the Arclight crashed. In this town you will have the first contact with The Chosen. That's the alien race you have to get rid of. One of the most exciting features is that these missions can be co-op played with hundreds of other players. Firefall will also support massive PvP events and tournaments. You can compete with other players in arena matches or take part in clan or league battles. There are 4 PvP arenas in Firefall. Sunken Harbor is a classic deathmatch scenario where the team with most kills wins. Moisture Farm is similar to Sunken Harbor only respawn points are random. Orbital Comm Tower is an assault base type of map. Blackwater Harvester is a capture base battleground.
Battleframes are Firefall's approach to classes. The Dreadnaught is a battleframe with heavy armor and a magnetic field that acts as a shield. The Dreadnaught's weapon is a chain gun. The Medic is a battleframe capable of support and healing. The Assault battleframe is a killing machine equipped with powerful weapons. The Recon battleframe blasts enemies from great distances. The Engineer battleframe has a support role. Firefall has a harvesting and crafting system. You will use harvested resources to craft better equipment or improve your technologies. Firefall seems like the perfect game if you're on the hunt for some quality free fps with the social touch of an mmo.
