Pretty, isn't it?
* Why should I get into the game now?
First, open beta is starting soon. Anyone who was in the closed beta likely has a number of invite codes left over to drag people in with, and if you can't find someone to invite you there's always the buy-in option of throwing actual money at Red 5 Studios for a founder's pack. If you get in before open beta starts, there's a few items you can get right now that players won't be able to get later, like pets, custom glider pads, and even a future-motorcycle with a fancy red paintjob. As of this posting, I have five (5) invite codes to give away.
* What can I do in the game?
Right now? You can mine for resources, you can travel the (somewhat small right now) open world to complete missions for XP and resources, you can challenge players in the world to PvP duels, or you can get in a queue for one of a number of arena PvP matches. All of these activities reward you with XP, which is earned on a battleframe-by-battleframe basis, as well as resources that you can use to advance your battleframe's capabilities or to build new toys to play with. There's even a raid boss that players can summon, but it needs 25 coordinated players to beat up.
* What will I be able to do as the game progresses?
The devs have stated in the past that their end goal for FireFall is to allow players to push the Melding off of Earth entirely, giving the game a win condition, as well as to give players the chance to fail and let the Chosen and the Melding take over entirely. There's a series of videos by the folks who do Extra Credits that will explain this in more detail, and the first one is here: http://youtu.be/RhLBtBUp_pI
