I did not see a reference to this game here yet, so I am going to mention it! I have been involved in the forums pretty heavily since the beginning of September, since it was announced at PAX.
Here is a quote from the front page of the game's website
.Earth will never be the same. After the Crystite Wars, humanity inadvertently invited the worst enemy ever conceived: THE MELDING. It surrounds us. It forces us to live in pockets of land protected only by the accidental discovery of repulsor technology. We continue to fight for land. For technology. For power. For our very survival. JOIN THE FIGHT.
FIREFALL is a team-based action shooter. Join your friends in an epic online campaign across a vast open world to stop the Melding and fight for the survival of humanity against the army of the Chosen. Advance your army and character through technological upgrades. Level up different character classes. Compete for supremacy in various multiplayer game types. Push back the Melding. SAVE EARTH!
The game is set to release toward the end of 2011. The closed beta start has not been announced yet. When you sign up for the site/forums you automatically get put in the selection pool for the beta. Forum participation is not required. HERE
is a link to the blog. Since the game is around a year before release, there still is not a ton of new info out yet.HERE
is a good stickied thread about "what we know so far" about the game. Some pretty good info, as well as links to the vids of the game.
is a list of questions that have been answered by devs.
I do also have an ulterior motive to this thread
I ask that if you sign up, you use my forum name AgentSmith5150
on the sign-up page in the "referrals" field. The forum has an "experience" program setup that is purely for fun
and has no real bearing on anything, including getting into the beta. So I get no real gain, it's just like a mini game in the forum so check it out!
