Red 5 Studios is kicking off Firefall‘s first public beta test this Friday, Jan 25, giving everyone a chance to jump in and play the upcoming MMOFPS for 48 hours. If you haven’t heard of the game, Firefall is an upcoming free-to-play MMO shooter set in a sci-fi universe 200 years in the future. The game features a polished PvP combat system perfect for competitions and an open world design.
This test is apparently one of three open beta weekends scheduled for this year. There will be another in February and another in March.
“After successfully completing a few controlled stress-tests late last year, we’re excited to move into the next phase,” said James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios. “This will be the first time that we’ve opened upFirefall’s servers to everyone. We’re really looking forward to gathering a bunch of new feedback and data that will help us build up to launch this year.”
