If you’ve not yet had a chance to play the MMO FPS Firefall then pay attention, Red 5 Studios has finally announced a few beta weekends where you can help with the testing.

The weekends will run for 48 hours and they will be themed with players being asked asked to focus on a specific area of the game such as “thumping” or specific game events. The events are scheduled as follows:

  • November 9th, 2012 until November 11th, 2012
  • November 30th, 2012 until December 2nd, 2012
  • December 7th, 2012 until December 9th, 2012

The testing events for the three weekends will include:


Join the other citizens of New Eden in collecting valuable minerals by calling down thumpers and fighting back the deadly creatures they attract.


The wildlife population across New Eden continues to grow, and the more violent species are becoming a threat to the way of life in Copacabana. Work alongside other players to thin the herd and keep the citizens safe.


The Chosen have rallied their forces and are making their push into New Eden to crush the remnants of humanity. Band together, explore the world, find enemy Chosen patrols, and decimate their forces before they overwhelm New Eden.

We’ll be giving players 48-hour beta weekend invites throughout these three events so that our registered players will have the chance to try Firefall for the first time, as well as help us to stress our new server infrastructure over the three event weekends. Sign up today for your chance to play, and join the community for our first Firefall event weekend!*
*Times will be specified in the email received for your beta weekend

Our first Firefall Beta Weekend will begin in early November, with another at the end of the month and a third in early December.

To take part you will need to head to the Beta Weekends page on the Firefall site and get signed up in advance.
