Firefall public beta stress test kicks off this weekend

Firefall, Red 5's free-to-play massively multiplayer online shooter, will kick off its first public beta test Friday as part of a weekend event designed to stress test the upcoming title's servers.

The test, which will begin on Jan. 25 and run for 48 hours, will not require an invite to join in; anyone can register for an account and pre-load the beta client on the official Firefall site. If you'll be otherwise occupied this weekend, don't despair; two more public beta events are scheduled for February and March.

Red 5 released a new gameplay trailer today alongside the announcement, showing off some of the skills that have been added to the game as a result of player feedback; you can check it out above.
