Red 5 is a new game developer studio born from the hands of Mark Kern (behind World of Warcraft) and Scott Youngblood  (who previously worked @ EA or Sony Computer). New studio means new games… and their first on-line shooter will be “Firefall“…

A free team-based action shooter that shall be launching worldwide by the end of 2011. FF sets the player in a future Earth….

“After the Crystite Wars, humanity inadvertently invited the worst enemy ever conceived: The Melding . It surrounds us. It forces us to live in pockets of land protected only by the accidental discovery of repulsor technology. We continue to fight for land. For technology. For power. For our very survival. You’ll probably have thought by now… is this Starship troopers 45? Mmmmm not really, but the influences are obvious… Planetside, Tribes…

Firefall will allow you to upgrade your arme and character through technological upgrades and compete for supremacy in various multiplayer games…. nothing new really, but for being a free on-line shooter it looks pretty good.

The beta launch date still has to be confirmed but we think it shall be by mid 2011 (earlier H1 if lucky) so you can already go and sign-up if you want to be one of the firsts shooting Meldings (well, the registration is for the on-line forum which it automatically means you’re singed up for the beta, a selection process will come afterwards)….
