By now, most of you have read the first four entries in our Path to Launch blog series (or if you have not, you can at [www.Firefall.com ]
) and are familiar with some of the changes and additions we are making to Firefall. One question that has popped up after every one is “when can we expect to see these changes in game?” That is a question that we haven’t been able to give you an answer for, until now. On July 14th, we will be bringing our game servers down for a full-day maintenance session. When the servers come back up on July 15th, they will be running the launch patch of Firefall
complete with all of the new things we've talked about so far, and more.
However, July 15th
will not be the launch date for Firefall
. As of the time of this post, we have disabled the ability for newly created accounts to log in and play Firefall
(as in any account that was created after the time of this post will not be able to create a character, but any account created before will remain able to play as normal)
. When the patch goes live on the 15th, it will only be accessible to existing players, or new players who have early access – more info on that below. That will continue until, at long last, Firefall officially releases on Steam on July 29th
. That’s right, as of July 29th, 2014, Firefall
will be officially launched and available to everyone for free on the Steam platform.
We are excited to announce the release of our new Firefall
Feature Page, hosted on the recently acquired domain of [www.Firefall.com ]
. This page includes an overview of the major features of Firefall
, as well as the Firefall Launch Packs described above. You can check it out by clicking on the aforementioned URL, or the ad in the sidebar of our main page. This page will continue to be expanded as we announce more features in the coming weeks.
The launch of Firefall
is coming, and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support throughout the entire development process. Without your feedback and countless hours of testing, we would have never made it to where we are today. The 29th of July only marks the beginning of the journey ahead of us, as we’re already working on what’s next for Firefall
. We hope you join us for it.
See you in-game, Pilots!
