FireFall is a game that you need to keep on your radar. I did a write-up about it last year when I first heard about it and when I was able to spend some time with the developers. But this year, I actually got some hands on time with the game. I’m going to tell you what I saw now.
Unlike last time where I saw some of the world of FireFall, this time I was able to experience some multiplayer action. The mode I was able to play was called Sabotage. It’s a team based mode attack and defend mode where one team has to take control of 3 points and after all 3 points are taken, the other team gets their shot to not only take over those points, but to do it in less time then you. It was a fun little mode and one that will be apart of the game when it ships, this and a team death match mode are what have been announced so far.
The mode was pretty fun, I was able to try 4 of the 5 classes in the game Assault, Medic, Recon, and the Engineer, the 5th class has yet to be announced. Each of them have their own unique abilities as well as their own unique look to them. My favorites were the Assault and the Recon class though, they were powerful and I was racking up my experience left and right with them. Probably one of the things I really enjoyed about the shooting aspect of the game was that it was skill based, not a roll of the dice type of thing so if you tend to be good at first person shooters, you should be just fine with FireFall.
The graphics of FireFall weren’t too shabby either, especially for a free game. Think Borderlands, in fact, think Borderlands about several aspects of the game which I think should be a good thing. While this post is about its multiplayer, you can read more about the world and single player from my previous post, it is a year old though, so just a heads up, some things have changed. FireFall’s multiplayer though, it seemed to be like a cross between Borderlands and Team Fortress. You need to work together as a team to really succeed here. When using the classes correctly, and together, you will dominate everyone. While the match I played probably had around 4v4 or 5v5 playing, the game is supposed to be capable of supporting over a hundred possible players. A feature that I would LOVE to see.
At this point you might be asking yourself how are they going to be supporting FireFall with it all being free and such. Well that’s going to be through microtransactions, yes, DLC. We’ve been told though that you shouldn’t worry too much about people with more money kicking more ass then others though. FireFall’s DLC is said to be more about boosts and looks then being over powered weapons and gear.
FireFall is definitely a game that should be on your radar, it’s not only suppose to be coming out later on this year, and it not only looks great and I thought was pretty fun to play, but it’s free, you really can’t beat that. Over on the FireFall website, they are currently taking sign ups for a beta that is just beginning. It’s currently only open for friends and family but it is soon to open to more people out there. I’ve already signed up for it and I’d really recommend you to do the same. Don’t ignore this game because it’s free, it’s a great game that deserves your attention. Keep your eyes on Platform Nation for more FireFall information as it comes out. This is a game that we will continue to support down the road leading up to its release. And I’m really hoping that we might be able to do some type of giveaway with its beta as well, well my fingers are crossed at least.
