For a game that the developer will be handing out for free, Firefall looks impressively promising. The large scale team-based online shooter—don't call it an MMO—is certainly pretty from way up here.

It's also pretty handsome on the ground, where much of the shoot 'em up action will take place. Given the game's Tribes and World of Warcraft pedigrees, we're curious to see if developer Red 5 Studios can pull it all off. We'll find out when Firefall ships later next year.

For eyes-on impressions of the game, don't miss our PAX 2010 preview of Firefall.
