Hands-on With Firefall at PAX East

There's definitely been no shortage of awesome games this year at PAX East, not the least of which being Firefall by Red 5 Studios.

Firefall is a really exciting free to play developed by Red 5 Studios, a company founded by Mark Kern. Kern was formerly Team Lead of another MMO you may have heard of, World of Warcraft. Firefall is a team-based shooter, set 200 years in the future on Earth.

Firefall allows players to either play in an enormous open-world cooperative campaign, with other players online or jump into competitive multiplayer action online. Multiplayer is going to ship with quite a few game modes, including death match, capture the flag, territory control as well as some new game modes that Red 5 wasn't able to mention yet.

The game looks great and felt great during our time playing. Each player is equipped with a jetpack and forward thruster. The jetpack can be used for a set amount of time before needing a recharge, but is definitely a ton of fun to use. When combined with the forward thruster, players can traverse the map quickly to reach the heart of the action.

Take a look at some screenshots below, courtesy of Red 5 Studios.
