Player vs. player team battles on offer this weekend at PAX East.


Irvine, CA, (March 11, 2011) – The most talked about PC game of PAX Prime is geared up to kick-ass a second time at the Penny Arcade Expo in Boston, this week. Red 5 Studios™ increased the size of Firefall’s booth for their east coast debut for one very important reason: to give gamers a chance to play with and against their friends for the first time anywhere in the world.

Developer Red 5 Studios will invite PAX East attendees to battle it out live in player versus player team matches on a brand new, never-before-seen corner of Firefall’s gorgeous world. An arena-like competitive gameplay map, Sunken Harbor, sets two armies into a bloody fight for dominance and for ranking on the built-in ladder system. Players will also get a chance to try three of the game’s battleframes, including the never-before-seen Recon battleframe.

Executive Producer, James Macauley, is thrilled about getting to show fans a deeply competitive side of Firefall. “We talked a lot about our open-world cooperative campaign at PAX in Seattle, and focused on our dynamic missions”, Macauley smiles. “Meanwhile, around the office, we were having a blast tearing into each other in our versus battlemaps. For PAX East, we’re really excited to share this with people outside of Red 5 for the first time and to let gamers feel the rush of army vs army combat in a fun, competitive arena. We really think they’re going to like the intense team-based action of Firefall and just how frantic battles can be.“

Firefall is set in a beautiful but devastating vision of earth’s future, where the last surviving humans cling together to fight back the lethal threat of a powerful force called the Melding, while resisting a mysterious bloodthirsty army, known as the Chosen, who is hell-bent on wiping out humanity. Red 5 Studios is currently accepting applications for the beta program of Firefall, scheduled to go public later this year. For more information, visit Firefall’s official web site at http:/
