Firefall Beta to Offer Twitch Livestreaming Support


Red 5 Studios have today announced that the Firefall’s community has completed its Founders Rewards program and reached the Tribe’s final Founder’s Pack stretch goal, culminating in the launch of Firefall’s latest feature – integrated Twitch broadcasting.

Firefall’s Founders Rewards program was launched late last year for Founding Members to unlock special Loyalty Rewards by supporting ongoing development with the purchase of Founders Packs. With the Founders Rewards program complete, all three exclusive items – Virtual Camouflage Goggles, the “Locust” Warpaint and a Custom Thumper – have been unlocked for Founders Pack holders.

As an added bonus to celebrate reaching its final stretch goal, the Tribe is introducing integrated Twitch livestreaming to the community. Players can now easily broadcast live video of Firefall to their Twitch channel while communicating directly with viewers using exclusive chat integration. Combined with Firefall’s powerful eSports Toolkit, players now have an unprecedented set of features that allow them to produce professional broadcasts of Firefall’s elite competitive gameplay.

James Macauley, Vice President of Development, Red 5 Studios, explains the idea behind the Twitch livestreaming ability introduced into Firefall:

“Livestreams are all about interaction, so launching Twitch integration is a fitting ‘Thank You’ to our awesome community for helping us reach this milestone, We’re putting our hearts into Firefall and your continuing support is what keeps us going.”

Firefall is an upcoming free-to-play MMO shooter set in a unique and beautiful science fiction universe 200 years in the future. Players interested in Firefall, or its beta, can register interest at the official website.
