Firefall Beta Weekend

The Firefall Website has details on another weekend of beta testing in the MMO shooter that will get underway this afternoon at 3:00 pm EST. This includes the opportunity to check out the latest version as well as a shot at prize packages to reward the users who create videos depicting the best mid-air moments they encounter along the way. Word is:

Take to the skies to explore every canyon, cave, and crater throughout New Eden, or use your jetpacks and gliders to get the drop on Chosen patrols all weekend long. When you arenít soaring over Sunken Pass, or raining down fire on Centauri Foray, test yourself against fellow players in fast-paced PvP!

This weekend is also a chance for us to continue optimizing our servers to allow even more players the chance to enter New Eden and enlist in the fight for Earth.

It's pretty boring at the moment unless you like doing the same few things over and over and over like WoW Dailies.

The Campaign isn't in the beta yet. So all you can really do is go recapture hubs taken over by Chosen or Thump for hours and hours.

Hopefully when they add more things to do it'll get more interesting.

I pitched $20 their way after looking at some videos of the game. It's pretty good so far. It's got some bugs, but it IS in beta.

Lag isn't bad, at least I don't notice much at all. Overall gameplay is good. Graphics are good.

They need to fix quest bugs, but it's coming along well, and the game shows a LOT of promise.

It helps that the guy designing this also worked on WoW at Blizzard up until it launched.

Firefall is not like PS2 at all, aside from being a free-to-play MMOFPS. It's open-world PVE with instanced-arena PVP. And there is no buying weapons and upgrades like that, only cosmetics and convenience (such as XP boosts, small fee to skip the wait for crafting, and more battleframe garage slots which effectively act as interchangeable character slots).

None of those

I haven't followed this game at all. Planetside 2 was a disappointment. Is this any good? Is it laggy? Is it P2W?

From the pics it looks like a cross between Borderlands and Brink....
