Releasing a new gameplay movie, Red 5 Studios announced that Firefall will begin its first public beta test this Friday during an unlocked 48-hour "Beta Weekend". The January 25 test is one of three unlocked Beta Weekends scheduled for early this year. Two additional public stress-tests are planned for February and March as part of Red 5’s strategy to gradually roll out Firefall's beta.
These Beta Weekend stress-tests will be completely unlocked with no keys required - allowing everyone to participate in the Tribe's Closed Beta push. Additionally, each 48-hour weekend will incorporate a community unlock, exclusive contest and unique theme to teach new players what Firefall is all about.
