To start with, Red 5 Studios will be bringing their Firefall Mobile Gaming Unit, which features '20 AMD powered gaming stations, Razer peripherals, support for 1,000 person LAN parties and livestreaming capabilities with full shoutcaster support.' This will be located outside the convention center in Seattle, for folks wanting to get some hands on with Firefall.
The team is hoping to show off a bit of what they're putting together with the in-game store in Firefall, as well. The recently launched store gives players a chance to buy unique and fun items by converting real-life currency to in-game currency.
Mark Kern, Red 5 CEO
The store launch is a very important step for us. Not just because we’re monetizing Firefall but also because we’re beta testing our free-to-play model for the first time.
We’ve done our best to give players cool and original in-game items to purchase at a fair price – our discounted Founders Packages are part of that – but we’re always looking for ways to improve the experience.
Our commitment to incorporating community feedback doesn’t stop at monetization.
Last, but not least, Red 5 Studios will be debuting Founders Packages at PAX Prime, giving early adopters a chance to show their support for Firefall. These limited editions of Firefall come in multiple tiers, all offering different rewards for purchasing.
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. If you're interested in checking out Firefall at PAX Prime, make sure you drop by the Mobile Gaming Unit outside the convention center and drop by the official website.
