PAX 2010: Former World of Warcraft Designer Unveils FireFall MMOTPS
From the minds that brought you World of Warcraft and Tribes, comes a free-to-play massive-multiplayer, team-based shooter called FireFall. The game is set to release at the end of 2011 for PC from the new-found studio, Red 5.
Red 5’s Scott Youngblood commented in the press release, saying...
“I wanted to take the best of what I learned making online games and bring that to skill-based shooters.”…“When Mark brought me on to help design Firefall, it was obvious to me that he was dedicated to building something different. With Firefall, I’m finally able to make the game of my dreams.”The game is straight-up amazing; imagine Tabula Rasa, Halo 3, BattleSwarm: Field of Honor, StarCraft, Starsiege Tribes and Section 8 had a massive orgy and produced an offspring...it would be something on the lines of FireFall.
The game sports heavy customization, first or third-person combat, vehicles, team-play, resource management and more. It’s extremely impressive looking and the best part about it is that it’s using the F2P model so gamers don’t have to worry about getting bogged down with monthly subscriptions. I could see a lot of people throwing a lot of money into this game’s cash shop when it goes live in 2011.
