I've been following for a number of years the folks over at Red 5 Studios, ever since these ex-Blizzard developers opened shop back in 2005. Though they went through some difficult times recently, it seems that they're on track to deliver a great looking futuristic Free to Play FPS/3rd Person hybrid.
If the recent footage shown at PAX 2010 is any indication, Firefall (which currently has a release date of 2011) looks very promising! Additional links following these 2 videos.
I for one, have registered for the BETA and look forward to seeing what looks like a gem of a game!
