Red 5 Studios has announced that it will unveil the Firefall 'Mobile Gaming Unit' they've been working on during the 2012 Anime Expo in Los Angeles. There, fans will be able to register for the game's exclusive beta, and will get to meet heroes Typhon and Mourningstar live! In addition, of course - the Mobile Gaming Unit.
Brought to life by the talented team at West Coast Customs, the MGU is a massive 48-foot-long gaming tournament on wheels that features a unique aesthetic design pulled straight out of Firefall’s sci-fi world. Planned to tour the country later this year, the MGU is equipped for top-level eSports play with 20 AMD powered gaming stations, Razer peripherals, support for 1,000 person LAN parties, and even a shoutcaster podium with full live streaming support.
“Anime Expo is the perfect event for this reveal because Firefall’s rich sci-fi universe is something that anime and manga fans are going to really appreciate,” said Mark Kern, CEO of Red 5. “They’re the type of gamer that pays extra attention to the lore and story; they enjoy interacting with it outside of the medium. We’re delivering that interactivity in a huge way.”
Firefall is currently in the first stage of its invite-only beta and is planned to release sometime during 2012. Sign up for the beta or read up on the game at http://www.firefallthegame.com/home.
