Red 5 Studios has posted a new video by Extra Credits, helping to convey their approach to release content for Firefall!
Firefallis due out later this year and features online multiplayer action in a massively multiplayer FPS setting. In Firefall, Earth has been plunged into a dark age known as the Nine Year Winter, a direct result of an asteroid colliding with Earth - an asteroid that was predicted by astronomers to be a 'near miss'. A substance known as crystite is discovered in the planet, allowing factions to generate nearly unlimited amounts of power. Events proceed and eventually the Arclight is built. This is a massive ship, sustained by two crystite reactors, nearly the size of an entire city.
The Arclight was the result of a collaboration from nearly every world power, but its maiden voyage couldn't have gone more wrong. As the Arclight began to "fold space" in its journey, something went wrong and a massive tear was rent in the fabric of the universe, creating the Melding - a giant energy storm that is pouring out of the rift and transforming all life it comes in contact with.
With both an open-world cooperative campaign and competitive multiplayer components, the game is sure to make a splash - especially since it's also free-to-play. For more on Firefall, you'll definitely want to check out http://www.firefallthegame.com/!
