Firefall: An open world mmo-style FPS
 
Anybody here playing Firefall? If you are add me to friend under the name Bayya

Firefall is a open world FPS that is now in beta phase 1. You can apply for a beta invite or buy your way in via a founder package for $20, $50 or $100.

So far I'm really enjoying the game, it's fairly fast paced as it tries to imitate Quake like game play(still not quite as fast). The open world objectives and quest are very much like guildwars 2 and PvP is fairly fun.

Right now I'm with a group of friends prospecting terrain and dropping thumpers which start a dynamic event where you defend your thumper as it mines for resources to craft stuff with. I have no idea what to craft or what I can craft yet but I'm enjoying it.

And the CEO left Blizzard's World of Warcraft Team Lead position to start this game. :whistle:

Haven't played in a long while. I'll probably wait until closer to release to play again.

I'm really liking it, but im told in zone chat there is no fast travel system (I hope thats wrong). I'm having really fun with a group of friends!

There is no fast travel system but I have no problem clearing the map quickly and meeting friends anywhere. The game isn't as massive as it's first impression.

Portable glider pads and LGVs are your friend.

LGV and red bean glider pads are essentially quick travel. but the map right now is so small its not needed.
