New Firefall trailer shows the Dreadnaught battleframe


9:30 PM on 10.19.2011



Despite going to both PAX Prime and PAX East in 2011 and Firefall's noticeable presence at both events, I haven't actually tried it yet. Which is a shame, because the more I see of the game, the more I feel compelled to play it.

And this new trailer for the Dreadnaught battleframe shows the different talents and abilities you'll have on offer if you pick this minigun-carrying class. Unlike the slow, pondering Heavy from Team Fortress 2, the Dreadnaught seems to have a good range of skills that will stop them from being bogged down or picked off from afar.

Plus you throw in jetpacks into the deal and Firefall is looking like a fun game. But with PlanetSide 2 on its way, will there be room for two big MMO/shooter titles? Have you guys already picked a game as the one for you, or is there enough room in your heart for both?

Celebrate Firefall's open beta with this cheesy trailer

Yeah, it's a cheesy video but it sure does make me miss when games had live-action cutscenes. Not that I want more games to have live-action stuff again. Oh far from it.
