This trailer offers the full E3 theater presentation for PlanetSide 2, SOE's upcoming MMOFPS sequel (thanks Cutter). The clip is narrated by Brian Bosch, a well-caffeinated level designer on the game, who outlines the game's competing factions, massive infantry combat, unit customization, "huge-ass" vehicle combat, and more.

It'll be garbage because some of the menu elements are similar? Well uh ok.
I was listening to the E3 presentation and I'm glad they didn't make the same mistake as BF3 and put ammo deployment on the class who is supposed to hang back and suppress.
What? Did you play Bad Company 2? It was a LOT worse giving the ammo dispenser to the class with the underslung grenade launcher... Not to mention really weird that a machine gunner had medic equipment. And then it wouldn't make sense to give it to the Engineer or Recon, so Support is really the only option, and was the design for every other game in the series. It's not like being on the front lines prevents them from being effective in combat, nor is requiring teammates come back to the rear firing line for resupply a big deal.
