Red 5 Studios to Suspend Firefall PvP Play to ‘Get It Right’

Posted by at 6:23 pm on September 15, 2013


Red 5 Studios will suspend the Player vs. Player (PvP) elements of Firefall at a “near future point” to focus their resources on improving the game’s Player vs. Environment (PvE) aspects, CEO Mark Kern announced on Thursday.

Kern explained that Jetball, Firefall‘s “last big attempt” at a PvP mode that was designed for eSports, was fun but didn’t “attract many of our players (less than 3% PvP in Firefall).” Kern described PvP as an important part of Firefall and said that the studio will “regroup, rethink, and deliver the best PvP system we can.”

Kern said the studio’s most immediate efforts will focus on PvE, as players want “more content, fewer bugs and more polish.” Although Kern did not have a date for the suspension of PvP, he said it will eventually return to Firefall “when it’s ready.”
