PAX 2011: New Firefall Trailer

Red 5 Studios has released a new trailer for their upcoming F2P shooter Firefall. This trailer gives you a glimpse into the mind of one of “the Chosen.” A humanoid race that has been warped by cosmic forces, “the Chosen” will serve as the main antagonists of Firefall.

Other enemies include legions of giant insectoids that bring to mind scenes from the movie Starship Troopers. With hundreds of players able to join in the persistent open world, Firefall is certainly an ambitious project. You can check out my hands-on preview here.

/me waits on the edge of my chair for new info.

Seriously, this game looks amazing. Would love to see as much info on it as you can get :)

Is that david Lodge doing the voice work? Also, yes. I do think I can save that planet. Do you think that the Chosen can save themselves from me?! I think not! Love the new trailer. Its 1:44 min closer to the release of the game.

Fundamentally one of the greatest games I have had the pleasure of playing. Great visuals in an expansive opnen world; tons of things to do as you gear up and enjoy PvP events. This is a must for gamers and enthusiests alike.

Wow this trailer just blew me away Red5Studios keeps impressing me over and over. The gameplay looks great and I’m looking forward to getting into some competitive PVP again. I look forward to seeing more articles about firefall and red5.

Ah, very nice! LOVE the trailer! Makes me damn curious on how the Chosen think… are they a collective thought group? Do they have different opinion on the humans from Chosen to Chosen, or do they all share the same idea on the Humans? What do they mean when they say the planet has been “Chosen” as well?

Oh, and agree with Ghost778, those Chosen don’t stand a chance against us! Prepare to lose members! …LOTS of members!

this looks goddam amazing.

I look forward to the expansion in a few years that lets you play as the chosen! Ignoring that, we finnally got a sample of the Chosen’s story! and they definetly dont look human, even tho their armor style is similar :P I love how their are sooo many opponents in this game. its You vs the CHosen
You vs Bugs
You vs wild animals
and of course, You vs Me! muahaha!
The only thing we are missing are rogue A.I’s to blow up! (thats 2 years from now)

GREAT TRAILER! I am a fan of the firefall for only a little while but it looks great! As harsh as these chosen chaps look they remind me a lot of the gears of war baddies the locust. Robots might be an interesting twist but from what i have seen there will be plenty to kill.

Oh man, I havent actually seen this video yet. Awesome. I want to be a Chosen now… Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I? New monster we havent seen too, in the lizard thing.

This trailer also tells us that it is perhaps true that the Chosen aren’t necessarily humans. That they may be an alien race that are trying to replace us.


On August 27, 2011 at 3:58 am

That video looks impressive. Fighting off a horde of the chosen as they invade your home cities? Yes please. Looking more and more like an intense team based MMO with a lot of potential! Truly can’t wait :)

Really nice looking new trailer + defending towns will be a lot harder knowing that the chosen haven stealth technology lol. I really would like to defend a town from that chosen invasion.

FireFall will dominate the F2P Shooter market when it is released this year, Scott Youngblood (Lead Designer, Tribes and Tribes 2) and Mark Kern (CEO; WoW Lead) as well as a great team of programmers, designers, (not to mention Orson Scott Card doing the back story). This game is the game that will define F2P around the world.


On August 27, 2011 at 8:26 am

That’s a great new trailer from PAX! I hope we get more videos like we did during Gamescon in the following days… I just want to see how the open world plays!

Are you guys more hyped about PVP or PVE?


On August 27, 2011 at 8:57 am

That trailer was awesome. I’m really enjoying the story line of Firefall so far. Sadly I’m not at PAX to experience it all in person, but at least the wait won’t be much longer now.


On August 27, 2011 at 9:22 am

The music in this trailer is so awesome. It sets a perfect setting for the voice actor to show off the enormous evil side of the chosen.

At the same time, they show the stunning graphics, the huge open sandbox world pve, the instanced pvp and of course the fact that you get this everything for the price of nothing. Keep an eye on this one! Beta should be coming soon (first wave right after pax is being said)


On August 27, 2011 at 9:54 am

Heh ya forgot to mention those dinosaur-like lizards in that trailer and they looked mad!! Its good to see the Chosen and the dropship, an indication that they have many means and tools at their disposal in order to be daunting foe. Same goes for the various creatures as well. I see variety of foes as a key factor to the PVE gameplay.


On August 28, 2011 at 4:59 am

Can’t wait to play this game, the hype as been killing me.


On August 28, 2011 at 8:47 am

New Trailer looks amazing, I am definitely looking forward to this game!

What is everyone’s favorite feature?


On August 28, 2011 at 9:47 am

These trailers are really such a tease :D Nice trailer, really gets the hype up. Those new monsters (the lizards) look quite nice too. Did they do a some kind of charge towards that one guy?


On August 28, 2011 at 10:15 am

This is the first trailer that we have seem featuring the Chosen! I’m so excited to see the lore behind all of this! My only complaint is that the drop pods look very similar to the designs of others.


On August 28, 2011 at 10:18 am

That is an awesome trailer. The PvE combat alone looks exceptional, and on top of that they are developing a PvP shooter? I’m sold. I need something else to play other than battlefield. Something less brown!


On August 28, 2011 at 11:25 am

Firefall is shaping up to be one of the best f2p titles this year. Can’t wait to get my hands on the beta in the coming months.

@Manuito Definitely more excited about pvp :)

This trailer is so friggin’ awesome. I’ve seen it probably 20 times or more now, and I just can’t stop watching it. Great music, amazing voice acting, and every time that dropship appears… Oh man.

And those Chosen bastards think they can take Earth from us. Well, not if I can help it.

Cannot wait to play this game.


On August 28, 2011 at 11:50 am

The voice actor is the lead sound guy of Firefall. They actually did a Dev diary featuring how sounds were made a couple months back.


On August 28, 2011 at 12:44 pm

This game is so epic, you have to see it for yourself! Its live now at: get in the game!

Hi mom.


On August 28, 2011 at 11:45 pm

Wow love the new trailer and the fact that it is all in game footage makes it 10x better :) And is the dark storm picture new too? I haven’t seen that one before

PS The music in the trailer was amazing!


On August 29, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Not sure I like that trailer as much as the other ones. Music was great, but the voice over was weird. Also wish it was a bit higher FPS. People taking video of other people playing at pax made me want to play way more than this trailer.


On August 30, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Gotta say, I cant wait for it. I hope they spend some time fleshing out the lore of the game so you really feel like your fighting for something. Games already got a great forum going at If you are interested in it I would check it out.
