Firefall Free 2 Play

fpfirefallbannerA little bit Team Fortres 2, a little bit Tribes,Firefall is set 200 years in Earth’s future where (and when) humanity is on the brink of annihilation at the hands of an insectoid alien race. Several persistent world MMOFPS games like PlanetSide, Global Agenda, and Tabula Rasa have come and gone but Firefall looks to transform the genre.

With a stellar development team whose members include the team lead of World of Warcraft and lead designer of Tribes, Firefall promises high production value and a sleek, original art style. Players will be able to work cooperatively to overcome alien forces, or take part in a variety of competitive multiplayer game modes. Firefall is already accepting beta applications, but is not scheduled for release until the end of 2011.

Battlefield 2 The BIG War LIVE

battlenovsbfhqse
Who said that BF2 was dead? BF2 is a game that just keeps on grapping our foot from its grave, demanding us to stream it just one more time and who can say no to that. We here at Rush-TV are always true to our original fan crowd, therefore we have chosen to give BF2 another go for your viewing pleasure.

So with BF3 being a very anticipated game we will once again revive the competitive Battlefield spirit and take on the Bigwar between the communities Swedish community site BFHQ.se  and the Norwegian Battle.no.The Bigwar will as always be filled with absolute mayhem and trilling tactical maneuvers. Both teams will be putting forward to strong teams, containing many oldschool players from some of the old top teams, who have returned to the battlefield to throw some grenades and shoot some rockets.

The communities played their first Bigwar on the 20th of march, resulting in the victory for BFHQ.se on the maps of Dragon Valley and Mashtuur City. The time has come for the Norwegians to take their revenge. Due to the defeat, the normally proud norwegians over at Battle.no lost their pride to BFHQ.se.


The game will be played at 20.30 CET on the 8th of april, giving plenty of opportunities for unlimited intake of alcoholic beverages for both the viewers and players.

Homefront is coming

fphomefront-banner
With the recent flurry of anecdotal information regarding the battlefield series successor. Many games may have been pushed out of the limelight before they even had a chance to shine.

One of these games could be Homefront. Homefront could possibly be breaking into the multi-player competitive gaming scene in the absence of a battlefield teamwork orientated game suitable for competition.

There is a general consensus throughout professional gaming about some of the necessary features required within a game to make it competition worthy. Some of these features in the gamers checklist are rather simple such as demo recording, dedicated servers or even something as basic as a console. However the majority of recent "triple AAA" standard games have been mediocre at best from a competitive standpoint.

Hopefully Homefront can change this, and from all the information we have available at the minute, its definitely a possibility. It seems ESL also has alot of hope in Homefront becoming a great competitive FPS game by accepting it into the ESL Amateur Series before its official public release.

Battlefield 3 Fault Line Series Episode I

fpbattlefield3-bannerDICE posted a new Battlefield 3 single player gameplay trailer on the  official Battlefield site. The trailer shows a lot of the scenes we have  seen from the screenshots seen in various gaming magazines. Also we have 3 new images relesed from GDC showcasing the US' middle eastern occupation and the new drag to cover mechanic, The trailer reveals much of what we've already seen in magazines, but  seeing the drag mechanic in action, we learn it's controlled by the WASD  keys and that therefore this is PC footage. The story premise for the  single player mode is also revealed.
