Red 5’s open world FPS Firefall to introduce new duelling mode


Great news for aggressive Firefall players who until now could only express their rage by scratching at their monitors in an attempt to destroy enemy pixels: Red 5 are adding the ability to duel other players in the game’s open world. They’ve released a short video to demonstrate the new mode.

Duellers will also be able to duel in squads of any size and, much like most MMOs, these inter-player spats are inconsequential, just-for-fun romps delivering no XP or bonuses. They’re like bar fights in Westerns versus actual bar fights.

On a side note, I’m really enjoying Red 5’s in-engine videos. The mixture of friendly voices and well-composed camera angles is encouraging. Here’s the Firefall website, if you want to investigate further.
