Firefall System Requirements Released
In a press release yesterday, Red 5 announced that more than 500,000 people have registered for the upcoming beta. The first person shooter aims to buck FPS conventions in a few significant ways, including the jettisoning of a traditional leveling system in favor of more open ended skill paths that allow for more personal customization.
“The feedback and support from our community has been an integral part of the development process,” Red 5 CEO Mark Kern said. “We’re treating Firefall as a service, which means it’s critical that we’re continually adding value and fun for players. Having a large and growing community lets us know that we’re on the right track. But more importantly, their feedback helps us stay on the right track.” In anticipation of the beta, they made the system specs required to play the thing available. In short: Better save up.
