PlanetSide 2 Details and Screenshots

The PlanetSide 2 Website has some new screenshots from the upcoming MMO shooter sequel, along with some details about the game from creative director Matthew Higby (thanks PlanetSide Universe). Here's his outline of their goals for the sequel:

Our goal with PlanetSide 2 is to create a game where you will fight against and alongside thousands of players, competing simultaneously and directly against one another in massive battles featuring intense infantry action as well as incredible air and ground vehicle combat. You will be able to traverse enormous open-world maps featuring massive gameplay space and unique biospheres, punctuated by massive facilities, towers and bunkers. Persistent conquest warfare is facilitated by territory control where you will earn resources to unlock weapon add-ons, vehicle customizations, and more. No instancing here, everything is 100% PVP and 100% open world combat. And of course, a deep character customization and personalization will allow players to create your very own soldier, customize your weapons and vehicles to fit not only your own personal play style but the needs of your outfit or the entire empire.

World of Tanks has the F2P formula nailed down pretty well.

Assuming that there will be an XP and/or an item progression tree, its pretty simple to implement some analog method.

The entire game is F2P, but earning credits and XP is increased by a % when you purchase a premium account.

Aditionally they can add some extra equipment/items/vehicles/whatever that cost gold (or whatever real-cash currency they choose to use) that cant be had by regular means.

Personally I like WoT system, although some might argue that a faster leveling progression for paying user is Pay2Win.

WoT has a good formula, but it might be incompatible if they stick with the same progression that Planetside had. I'd prefer no individual item/vehicle XP or "gold" to purchase said vehicle as well.
