Red 5 Studios are giving current beta testers two weeks of exclusive access to the new milestone before Open Beta begins, granting access to the game’s PvP game type Jetball, and Firefall’s first story-based episode Blackwater Anomaly.  Players wanting to join in now can still purchase Founder’s Packs to gain access, before they’re retired on July 8th.

Jetball is a new objective-based eSports mode where two teams of five players compete for victory by flying or shooting a high-tech ball through their opponent’s goal.  Because players can’t defend themselves while carrying the ball, teams must rely on passing and coordination, strategically using each Battleframe’s unique weapons, abilities and maneuverability to score.  With Jetball, Red 5 has reinvented a classic multiplayer experience for a fresh wave of eSports fans.

Blackwater Anomaly, Firefall’s first story-based episode, kicks off Red 5’s world-story reveal.  Designed as an immersive, cooperative experience for five-person squads, players will finally get to venture out of New Eden and into the deadly Melding storm that’s taken over the world.  Their mission: to investigate the anomaly that’s appeared in Blackwater Marsh, learn more about why the Chosen are here and try to unravel what, or who, is behind this attack on humanity.

Firefall, an upcoming free-to-play MMO shooter, is set in a unique and beautiful science fiction universe 200 years in the future.  Players are part of the last remnant of humanity on Earth, fighting to survive against all odds on a hostile planet ravaged by an aggressive energy storm and under attack by a mysterious humanoid race, known as the Chosen.
