I am made fun of :(
Is there any exact release date/website for this yet? I played the old planet side so much
Smedley is telling us it is coming late first quarter or early second quarter. So between March and April. But without so much as a teaser I'm beginning to think there was some kind of miscommunication. I can't find any mention of a sequel on the actual planetside website, not even on soe.com under upcoming games. In fact, all we have is a blog post and three pictures and the game is supposed to release in a month and a half. Something is really fishy right here.
lol you guys need to remember while planetside means [B]awesome[/B] and [B]truly epic[/B] it also means [B]developmentally disappointing[/B]
I didn't find Planetside developmentally disappointing at all Do you even know what that word means [editline]9th February 2011[/editline] If it was developmentally disappointing it wouldn't be having 150 player battles 8 years after release
I used to play and I remember the load times were pretty long. Now, that could have just been a case of my old hardware being too poor to run the game...but is it just a fact that Planetside suffers from long load times? Also, if I resubbed today, how much do I have to DL?
my load times were never to bad and my system is total shit. but then again they could still be long to you and i could be used to shitty loading times that much.
gonna resub, played since 04 and loved every minute of it. I have had the best of times in this game.
[QUOTE=NeoSeeker;27947542]my load times were never to bad and my system is total shit. but then again they could still be long to you and i could be used to shitty loading times that much.[/QUOTE] I just remember waiting anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load new worlds. Or perhaps I'm just confusing loading times with having to wait for the HART shuttle. :v:
yeah it took a minute for me. despite some random pretty bad lag for no reason and a few random crashes planetside was very stable and ran smoothly most of the time on my rig.
I've fixed my ctd on planet change issue. Needed to disable texture preloading.
This looks awesome. Definitely trying it out, and maybe, if it's good enough, I'll have something to play until SW:TOR is released. [editline]9th February 2011[/editline] Do you have to pay for the game in order to get into beta?

They announced that current subscribers would definitely get access.

For some reason it just felt incredibly satisfying to shoot lasers back at the Vanu Sovereignty.
Unsubscribed. After playing for hours and hours I finally got tired of getting my ass handed to me. I never once got a kill, only killed a lightning in a prowler turret.
Not sure if I'll get into this game enough to subscribe. Subscription was the one thing that kept me from buying Global Agenda (which I hear is somewhat like Planetside), now that it's subscription-free I play it every few days but realize buying it and subscribing to it would have been a mistake. No matter what though, I want this to make MAG players shit themselves.

there had been the option to subscribe to get access to additional PvP content
[QUOTE=Acezorz;27961143]there had been the option to subscribe to get access to additional PvP content[/QUOTE] They had it [I]planned[/I] but there has never been any kind of subscription in GA. It completely B2P with paid expansions (first expansion, Sandstorm, was free. Second one will come out in a month or two). [editline]10th February 2011[/editline] Why are the people so ill-informed about my favorite MMO (until PS:N beats it) :saddowns:

I was in the beta and that's what I heard they were planning, so I just assumed that's what they did.
[QUOTE=cccritical;27961313][url]http://forum.globalagendagame.com/gablog/index.php/2010/06/23/ga-now-sub-free/[/url][/QUOTE] Your point being? [editline]10th February 2011[/editline] Basically, they gave us a "subscription free" month after the release and said that they'll implement it at the end of the month but they never did. Instead they removed it completely.
I said that it was the subscription fee that kept me from buying it, since it was planned to have subscriptions I didn't go for it when they announced it would be sub free I decided to get it
Sooo rumor has it this will be cross platform play PC-PS3?
[QUOTE=ItchyBarracuda;27965880]Sooo rumor has it this will be cross platform play PC-PS3?[/QUOTE] lol gl with that, sony. I'd actually probably play it on PS3 if I could use a KB + Mouse, too, so I could just use the PS3 controller and sit back when I'm in a vehicle - since I prefer controllers with most vehicles.
Considering DCUO launched on PC and PS3 and those aren't cross platform, I can't imagine a huge shooter like Planetside Next would be easy to do.
