Wowee! Sequel to the critically acclaimed Planetside, PS2 is more than just a spiritual sequel to this ground breaking game genre bending game game. It's an [I]actual[/I] sequel! Featuring true FPS faction warfare between the New Conglomerate, Terran Republic, and Vanu Soverignty, Planetside 2 is literally the biggest multiplayer FPS that has ever been released (when it releases this year). [h2]Things that made Planetside 1 gangster as fuck:[/h2] • Massive battles online against other massive players (200 players per continent/server) • Three different factions that all had unique cool stuff. • Colors for the three factions that were pretty good at symbolizing what they were about and stuff • Persistant online universe, where the ebb and flow of battle changes 24/7 as time goes on - not round based, the explosions are going on 24/7 • Class based warfare that made you feel [I]classy as fuck[/I] [h2]Things that make Planetside 2 make you go OHHH YEAHH:[/h2] • Even more massive battles (reported up to 1000+ players on a single continent!)!!! • IT IS FREE HOYL SHIT (okay well you can buy cosmetics and stuff like that) • A sweet new graphics engine • Sweet new level designs that make you feel like you are REALLY a space man soldier • It's still persistent bitch! • No BFR's!!

[QUOTE=Shadaez;35084764][url]http://facepunch.com/threads/1053480[/url][/QUOTE] Very old OP, plus Planetside 2 is less of an MMO and more of a shooter with a shitload of people.
That thread is super outdated, the OP is banned, plus its on the wrong forum. I wouldn't really consider PS2 a traditional MMO at all - the word "MMOFPS" is pretty much used by the PS2 team because it's more or less a nice buzzword that sells the idea of 1000+ players on a server better than saying it's an FPS game with big battles (which it is).
what are these doing in op. [t]http://www-cdn.planetside2.com/uploads/dcsclient/000/000/000/661.jpg?v=115.4[/t] [t]http://www-cdn.planetside2.com/uploads/dcsclient/000/000/000/801.jpg?v=118.4[/t]
it's clearly a MMO

My body has always been ready for PlanetSide 2. In PlanetSide 1 I was one of those assholes that would go with stealth armor and stalk engineers through their minefields and throw a jammer grenade at their head when they're standing ontop of a high explosive mine.
it's better here anyways, I don't even know why an MMO section exists, there's like 4 active threads
[QUOTE=Shadaez;35084905]it's better here anyways, I don't even know why an MMO section exists, there's like 4 active threads[/QUOTE] Yeah me neither. Just a relic from old GGD days where we had 10 subfourms lol, and somehow everyone of them got axed except for the MMO one
[QUOTE=Raidyr;35084830]Very old OP, plus Planetside 2 is less of an MMO and more of a shooter with a shitload of people.[/QUOTE] Shit load of people = MMO, Because: MMO = Massive Multiplayer Online = Shit Load of People (on one server at the given time). Shit load of people = 100+ in not that lare area... which can be easily achieved in ps. Even 60vs60 is big, what about 200vs200 +/- vs200 As long as game uses just one server (or multiples due to population), instead of room based action. Where you join a server, fight for 5 minutes then map changes and round restarts. So, Planetside, as do Planetside 2 is an MMO and to be more precise, MMOFPS, a real one.
Can't wait for this game, hyped as fuck.
The UI in the vehicles makes me think of Battlefield 3.
At first glace it looked like space BF3, but this is so much more.

More Increment (now with 100% additional Raidyr) [video=youtube;RALrIBxg8Ew]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RALrIBxg8Ew[/video]
I've always wanted an experience like this. This game...it was made for me! Can't wait for more news.
well this sucks ass. now i have to get a new computer. hopefully they have server side hit detection. the client side hit detection of the first game made it so everyone but reaver pilots and lib bombers had way negative k/ds [editline]10th March 2012[/editline] also the first one didn't have class based character system. it had a pure skill points based system. i think i remember this one being class based instead of just pure skill points. that's super fucking lame. [editline]10th March 2012[/editline] also anyone who played planetside 1 for lyfe like me knows the dev team for this game will slowly dissolve and eventually there'll be like 3 people on the team like it is now.
[QUOTE=GameDev;35086054]At first glace it looked like space BF3, but this is so much more.[/QUOTE] The developers have said that they have looked at the battlefield series as a point of inspiration (from the standpoint of combined arms being done rather well). So it very well might share a similar feel to BF3.

Its exactly like that now except you can switch between different classes on the fly with (I assume) different skill progressions instead of dedicating all your skill progression to one character and "one class".
One thing that concerns me about the new one that I saw in the 30 minute footage is that inventories seem to have been replaced. Now instead of the painstaking decisions about what you are going to put in your inventory and what you will put in the trunk of your vehicle, it is now a class system. Which sucks both because it decreases flexibility and because it likely means you will no longer be able to steal faction small arms and store them in a locker. I took great joy in stockpiling the sidearms of the other two factions.
F2P? Persistent? MMOFPS? Vehicles? I came.
I'm pretty sure there is still some sort of inventory/weapon system for all practical gameplay purposes, but yeah I don't think you'll be able to steal weapons from lockers or anything as you won't have a need to. My personal favorite thing to do was to hack spawns and spawn doors and stuff like that while in bases. Solo-capping an entire hotspot base because you did clever timing with hacks, healing, etc is probably one of the most satisfyingly satisfying thing I've ever done in a game. Especially since it was so easy to fail with the 15 minute long cap timer. It sounds like you can still do pretty similar things judging from the videos.

This sounds really cool. I never played the first, but I do remember seeing things about it. Color me interested, I'll keep my eye on this.
This looks ridiculously awesome.
Looks so good I questioned its existence at first glance. Holy crap I'm looking forward to this.
i want this soooo bad
I was looking forward to this game and then suddenly footage.. Now I will kill for it. Hmnnnngngngng..

Like the inventory/cert system you said, and the teamwork vehicular fun times. Still looks like its going to be completely badass.
