Firefall prepares for update 1.6 with more than a day of downtime

    
11
Well, here's hoping, at least.

Here’s the bad news for Firefall fans: the game is going down for maintenance on January 19th at 11:00 a.m. EST, and it’s staying down until January 20th at 1:00 p.m. EST. That’s quite the wait. The good news is that when the game comes back online, you can jump into the game’s patch 1.6 content, so at least all of that time spent waiting will have some ultimate rewards.

Patch 1.6 includes new narrative content tied to the Razorwind threat with an improved focus on story, the addition of Jetball as an arena PvP preview, new PvE Holdout missions, and a bunch of other updates and expansions. There’s a preview of the new Razorwind missions in video form down below, if that’s something you’d like to see. You might not want the game to be down for quite so long, but the bring side is that it will at least include plenty of stuff for the wait.

I miss crafting being useful. It’s still fun, but it’s not the same, you know?

I really enjoyed firefall I just cant get over not being able to change the look of my char unless I buy skins. Don’t get me wrong have no problem buying skins. But with every piece of gear looking the exact same it takes all the excitement out of finding a new piece of gear. At that point it is just stats. And stats are not enough for me to feel invested or any type of connection with the game.

I missed jetball so much! I still think this is the best MMO shooter on PC despite its many problems. Ill definitely log in to check out this patch.

I guess they’re going to make good revenue on PS4, more content and two level cap increases are planned for the year, Elite ranks, the return of PvP… lots of stuff

Nice, looks like interest for Firefall is increasing, saw lots of new players in Copa. Update is going to be huge, now please stick to the planned 6-8 week update cadence Red5

I always want to try to put some real time into this game, but I’m still hung up on investing time into it and it not being around in a few months.

Many good memories with this game when it was in beta and had a great guild with people always on.

Trying to stay open minded, but it sure isn’t easy. I played this game a lot in the past (all frames currently at 40, most of them 960+ geared), but haven’t touched it in around a year. I’m mostly disappointed that the OWPvP zone is effectively dead. It also seems like they’re reintroducing a lot of RNG in crafting and character advancement, and removing build diversity (including my favorite build). The new content is interesting and I’ll patch the game to check it out, but we’ll see if it keeps me around.
