Entering a new Closed Beta phase later this month, Firefall China has stolen some of the limelight over at ChinaJoy 2015 after it was announced for PlayStation 4, apparently only for the China region. Today, Chris Whiteside, Creative Director at Red 5 Studios, was at ChinaJoy and chatted with the local media, claiming Red 5 is working hard to make sure the China server is the best version.
For the upcoming Closed Beta phase, Firefall China will see new features such as Elite Ranks (activated after max level reached), new PVE dynamic events, and a PVP map (for single or party). Seeing how China gamers love PVP, Chris mentioned a new PVP growth system, along with rankings, competitive play elements, and even Army PVP (guild) are in the works for the China server.
Going on, Chris divulged that new features, new bounties, new quests, new gears, are all added into the game by Red 5 based on local research on the China market. He also said that he would need to start learning the Chinese language to better communicate with the players. Firefall China, touted as a “Hardcore Hollywood sci-fi” online game, is published by Shanghai Aozhi Technology.
