When I first wrote my about my initial impressions of Firefall, I came away from the game feeling like it was missing something. It was a fun little sci-fi romp, but lacked a major storyline to immerse me in the game world. As it turns out Red 5 Studios had some major story coming, they were just biding their time. With just a few days until the game rolls into open beta, they have released the Blackwater Anomaly trailer, full of intrigue and really huge boats. Darn them, now I'm going to have to play the game to find out what the heck is going on down there.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Sign up on the Firefall website to play the open beta starting July 9th.
