PlanetSide 2 Next Month

The PlanetSide 2 Website reveals that November 20th is the launch date for PlanetSide 2, SOE's MMO first-person shooter sequel:

Grunts, the war is coming. Prepare yourselves now for epic combat on a massive scale like you have never seen before. PlanetSide 2 launches November 20th!

If you weren't watching our livestream from SOE Live in Las Vegas, you definitely missed out on this and more exciting PlanetSide 2 news. Beyond PlanetSide 2 launching in November, the team also informed us that the battle for Auraxis will soon expand to a third continent, dark, swamp-infested Amerish, following from rocky Indar and arctic Esamir. But we canít have you running around without solid intel, so letís get you fully briefed on whatís happening.

The most important thing to know is an official launch date has now been announced, so this is not a drill. On November 20th, PlanetSide 2 will officially launch completely free to play for everyone. This means no more closed Beta, character wipes, and any of the other fun stuff associated with testing. No more do overs. Live ammunition will be issued, and you have authorization to go weapons free. Your empireís future depends on you.

Gather your squads, your platoons, and your outfits. You will need to hone your skills, certifications, and equipment to a finer edge than your combat knife. Choose your empire now and swear your allegiance while you can. If you wish it, you will need to join the Alpha Squad very shortly, or forgo the honor forever. You will need to master your ground vehicles, your aircraft, and your infantry classes. You will need to study your battlefield and know it whether blind or bleeding, day or night. Indar. Esamir. Amerish. This is your home now grunt.

When the warpgates open, when the drop pods fly, when the first shots break the silence, remember this. There is no turning back. Remember your training and you will survive. This is it. This is war.

This is PlanetSide 2.

For continuing news coverage and to continue your preparations, please join us on our Twitch.tv channel to see what youíve missed, and weíll see you on Auraxis on November 20th!

I couldn't disagree more with the majority of responses here. I've put in well over 100 hours into the game.

There are absolutely massive battles going on, at LEAST 200 v 200 in a a small area. Now that the Sunderer is essentially an AMS (spawn point) people are parking them right outside bases and the team flows in at a massive rate.

Shooting mechanics are vastly superior to PS1, almost on par with BF3.

Certs are a little dicey yet, and draw too much from BF3. Also the fun little things about PS1 like nanite runs and other support related tasks are missing (thank the 'new' moron gamer).

Squads/outfits/platoons have voice chat in game, very nice.

So in summary, what this game needs is a bit more PS1 meta game and some more interesting and distinctive certs, and will be legendary.

^ this will probably happen.

So ... why they are releasing now? Not sure, but I hope it doesn't hurt the game, because it's going to be fantastic in 6 months.
