Firefall update 1.1, Elemental Destruction, out today

Update 1.1 for MMO shooter Firefall – titled Elemental Destruction – is apparently out today. Hooray!

This update includes two new weapons, six elemental weapon capabilities, weapon modifiers for secondary weapons, a Hardcore version of Kanaloa the Destroyer, five new dynamic events, and a Chosen Offensive live event.

So, specifics. The new weapons are the Plasma Flak Cannon for Assault battleframes, which sends out a blast that explodes on impact or after a set amount of time, and the Bio Injector for Biotechs, which fires out poisoned needles and canĀ also be used to apply heal-over-time effects to allies. Your secondary weapons can be modified with energy-based mods, letting you add beam/laser beam/microplasma/emissive microplasma effects to shotguns, assault rifles, burst rifles, and submachine guns.

Finally (in terms of what I have details on, at least) there’s the Chosen Offensive live event. This’ll be running on 21 September, 28 September, and 5 October from 11am PDT to 3pm PDT.

Firefall is a free-to-play MMO shooter, which you can sign up for over here.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
