It's a high tech setting featuring a future Earth changed by a global disaster, where much of the planet's population has been wiped out. It has been in beta just about forever, but Red 5 is doing good things with the development time and huge number of testers.

What? It's still a closed beta, as far as I remember, so I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to say here.

Wow. I just downloaded the install data at about 80 MBps.

I got 5 beta invites if anyone is interested but didn't get one from that giveaway. PM me if you're interested.

Looks interesting enough to give a try, downloading it now.

Seems like a fascinating world as well, lots of questions:

- Who are these aliens?
- Why did this catastrophic event happen?
- Where is the cover-girl's shirt?

Just grabbed a key. I'm actually kind of excited, this is one of the games at PAX that I thought genuinely looked really cool.

GW2 will likely get the majority of my attention, but if this game proves interesting, maybe I'll play it.

Heh. I've had this game for months now. S'fun.

The Chosen, enemies who come from the Melding, an intergalactic death fog that appeared during the catastrophic event. Said catastrophic event is when humanity tries their first warp/teleporting technology on their flagship spaceship and accidentally tear open a hole in space-time that the Melding pours out of, enveloping most of the Earth except where the battleship ended up crashing as the teleporter tech is also holding the Melding at bay.

And that chick is wearing an Assault-class battleframe (powered bodysuit) and even the male version of the frame looks like that.

Did... did shirts go extinct in the Melding?

Damn... that's one hell of an apocalyptic event.

Nope. There are civilian clothes and the other frames have more prominent under-clothes like the full bodysuits on Recon or Biotech (combat medic) frames. Assault frames are pretty much just shorts with bulky armor, though.

Do some research. There's a tons of info on the Firefall site and Extra Credits are doing a mini-series on the game.

actually, the more pressing question is who tore off the left pantlegs from every engineer's suit

I'm just joking mate :)

No problem with a bit of cleavage, as long as I'm allowed to make some fun of it for being slightly silly.

Mysteries abound!

What further secrets could this shirt-destroying, pantleg-ripping catastrophe hold in store for us?

Find out in the next update of Firefall!

i suppose not much survived the event but one of the few things that did was a working copy of tf2 and thus they worship the engineer as some kind of god and to honor his lost left glove they rip of their pant legs.

i have a beta key but what really stops me from trying this thing is the marketing with every picture i see containing females in both power armor and with exposed skin. because that shit bugs me to no end.

Um, excuse me, insanely geared-up futuristic battle-ladies? Your insanely geared-up futuristic battle-armour seems to be missing pants.

Do I actually have to know everything about the lore to understand why there's no reason to protect one's abs and legs in the future? Are you sure it doesn't just boil down to "it makes prettier box art"?

rule one in shooting targets, aim for the center of mass... wheres ya fucking armor? lololol such poor design work.

if it makes you feel any more comfortable, the men are also wearing cutoff tank tops, shorts, and sometimes form fitting bodysuits too

medics just have to carry the most crap on their backs in general so the guy in the back is wearing standard bulky as hell gear for medics

It's not really uncomfortable, its more about the whole "appeal to 13 year old boys" vibe this kind of marketing gives off. However if the armor for everyone is equally stupid it doesn't bug me as much.
And I just noticed the medic has a syringe gun, my Tf2 comparison is not that off
