I (Robin Ek, TGG) am very sad to inform you all that Red 5 Studio's have decided to close down their "sci-fi F2P MMO/Open world game "Firefall". Here's what's known for now.
Never heard of it.
I wouldn't have know about the game if it hadn't been for PC Gamer Sweden.
Mark Kern is very sad about it as well.
Game was effectively shut down a couple years ago. They abandoned the instance servers and you could not get through the tutorial mission. Even players that were already past it prior to that point were stuck just grinding mobs as 90% of the game was inaccessible.
I'm going to ask them all about it to get their version of it, but that's what I've been told by the players.
This is sad news, because I always felt there was great potential with this game but it never got to where it could be. Plus this was the only game to ever use the Project Offset engine too. Project Offset never came out so getting to see what it could do was the closest we ever got because of this game.
The game looked pretty cool but I'm an SP guy so this was never gonna appeal to me.
