An den kommenden Wochenenden (30.11.2012 bis 02.12.2012 und 07.12.2012 bis 09.12.2012) finden Beta-Events des Online-Actionspiels Firefall statt und zwar in Europa sowie in Nordamerika. Die "Beta Weekends" sollen 48 Stunden dauern und als Stress-Test für Server und Co. fungieren. Interessierte Spieler können sich auf der offiziellen Website registrieren.
"We've seen an overwhelming demand for access to Firefall's beta since we began testing last year," said Mark Kern, CEO of Red 5. "The fact is, the growing number of registered players continues to outpace our servers and with closed beta testing going into 2013 that won't change in the short-term. These Beta Weekends are the solution. We're inviting thousands of new players to temporarily join Firefall for some huge server stress-tests, giving us valuable feedback, giving them a taste of the game, and helping to prepare Firefall for much larger numbers."
"Red 5's Founders Rewards program unlocks exclusive bonuses for founding members as new funding goals are reached. With the first funding goal already achieved thanks to early supporters, all founding members have been given Virtual Camouflage Goggles. Upcoming items and live progress updates can be tracked at http://beta.firefallthegame.com/founders, and new players will still gain access to all unlocked rewards by purchasing a Founders Pack."
