Have you tried Firefall yet? Red 5 Studios has announced a weekend of public play and epic prizes slated to start this Friday, February 22nd at noon PST.
Building on Firefall’s first public test in January, Red 5 has made improvements to existing systems and added new features for players to try. The latest update included Red 5’s final Founders Reward – a Custom Thumper – as well as integrated Twitch broadcasting – allowing everyone to stream their Beta Weekend experience with the click of a button.
Players can look forward to a new community unlock, as well as a themed contest featuring the game's unique vertical combat:
- Mid-Air Video Contest: Submit amazing aerial gameplay footage for a chance to win a Razer™ Kraken Headset, AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 (HIS IceQ X² Edition) video card and a limited edition Firefall Brontodon plushie.
- Community Unlock: All players who join the weekend stress-test will unlock a custom “mid-air” decal.
- Mid-Air Screen Contest: The top 10 mid-air screenshots will be featured on the official Firefall Facebook page.
With both an open-world cooperative campaign and competitive multiplayer components, Firefall is sure to make a splash - especially since it's also free-to-play.
