Red 5 Studios announced today that they will be holding “Beta Weekends” for Firefall, which consists of 48-hour open beta sessions. They also announced a “Founders Program,” which offers rewards to the fans who fund Firefall so the project goal can be met.
“We’ve seen an overwhelming demand for access to Firefall’s beta since we began testing last year,” said Mark Kern, the 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.”
These are the next planned Beta Weekend stress-tests for Europe and North America:
- November 30 – December 2
- December 7-9
Founding Members will automatically receive Virtual Camouflage Goggles as a result of the first milestone being reached early. Keep track of the founder rewards here.
