Firefall Sound Design Developer Diary





Michael Bross and Boon Sim take us through the sound design process for Red 5 Studios’ upcoming persistent Free2Play MMO, Firefall.

Firefall paints a beautifully devastating vision of Earth, 200 years in the future. The promise of a new clean energy source, Crystite, leads to the disastrous arrival of the Melding, a hostile energy storm that engulfs most of our home planet. Earth’s surviving humans must band together in the eye of the Melding storm to save our species. Unfortunately, a new danger emerges as a bloodthirsty race known as The Chosen threatens humanity’s survival.

Players of the game will be able to customize their characters through Firefall’s battleframes system, which will not only allow them to specialize in their favorite style of play, but also give them the flexibility to swap and trade their way to new configurations on-the-fly.
