Red 5 Studios has declared that Firefall’s extended beta program will commence later this month after PAX Prime. In accordance to an open letter from Red 5 Studios, "We will be drawing a much larger group of gamers from our beta program at our signup page, which is rapidly climbing to 200,000 signups despite our keeping a low profile."

The F2P team-based action shooter Firefall is already deemed launched. But rather than going through the traditional phases of a game (closed beta, open beta, official launch), they will be using a model similar to the invite system of Gmail. It will function in layers, every single layer that establishes itself will get more invite slots to share with their other gamers and friends. Each layer will have different requirements to determine when to put out more invite slots to the beta testers. The procedure will never end like it never did for Gmail.

As written by Red 5 Studios, "It’s a great way to grow the game through people’s social networks, which is what we want for our team and clan oriented game."

Additionally, Red 5 Studios has unveiled its latest trailer for Firefall. They will be at gamescom (booth #B041, Hall 9.1) and PAX (booth #3117) if you are interested in learning more about their game.
