If you're at a loose end this weekend, it's probably high time you logged onto Firefall, the free-to-play MMO shooter offering cel-shaded jetpack rampages. A double resource weekend is now in full swing, along with a major patch that makes it easier to access new areas and mini-narratives to enjoy.
Details after the break. You can get involved for free right here, though be aware that the confusing crafting system is still a source of major infuriation.
This weekend, all Crystite drops and rewards will be double! There is no time like the present to perfect your frame, unlock constraints, or research and craft those items you have been putting off. Crystite rewards will be doubled starting this Friday at 10:00am (PDT) through Monday at 10:00am (PDT)! Please note this is for drops and rewards, refining and the ARES Exchange marketplace are not affected.
Unlock the World! Visit our New Zones!
We know that many of you have not yet had the chance to visit new areas in Firefall. We’ve made it substantially easier to reach these exciting new areas. Check the molecular printers for the keys to unlock these new regions if you haven’t yet. Each zone features a unique encounter that will unlock the special story mission, Blackwater Anomaly. In the future, players will be able to push back the Melding in each of these pockets and expand them into full size new zones for Firefall. Unlock the World! Reclaim Earth!
Blackwater Anomaly Runs with Devs & Rangers
Rangers and Red 5 developers will be hosting Blackwater runs and taking groups of players through this exciting 5-man story instance. No keys required, and the Rangers have some small rewards planned for joining them. Look out for devs in chat with the Red 5 logo inviting people into the mysterious new area!
30% Discount on Pilot Token Unlocks!
Also, from now until August 20th, all Battleframes can be unlocked for just 7 Pilot Tokens instead of the usual 10. Join us in celebrating frame diversity by unlocking those new frames you have been thinking of trying. No better time to collect a few more frames! (Remember, this only applies to Pilot Token prices; Red Bean prices still remain the same.)
New Glider Wings and other items for Red Bean Buyers!
Starting today, ANY in-game purchase of Red Beans, (from $5 and up), will grant a one-time bonus of a new rechargeable Glider Pad with a new Red Plasma pattern! This glider is on its own cooldown, so it can be staggered with other gliders. Also included are the “Top Run and Gun” helmet and “Target” decal. This is a limited time offer until September 10th and we plan a regular rotation of great bonus items for Red Bean purchases every month.
