Looks pretty good, wish they would have shown more things in the game besides one infantry type and weapon, tank, and one air vehicle.

I'd like to see if/how stealth is handled, if vehicles can be stealthed. How the various vehicles work and their features. Like the APCs who used to have a gun for every person in it, at least you had something to do while someone else drove.

First off, certifications suck.

Second if people can earn them offline and everyone is going to be equal in the end why bother having them at all?

I'm guessing that you can only upgrade one tech tree at a time, so at least initially everyone will have different specialties - but yeah 2 years down the track everyone will have everything unlocked(but then isnt that the case for all RPGs?)

It also looks like there are several other things which are unlocked via ingame XP points, so you can still earn more items the more you play.


BTW - THIS LOOKS AWESOME SO FAR!

EDIT: FREE TO PLAY AS well

A crazy huge map is fine and all but I hope the actual draw distance to spot enemies is increased in the final product.

THROWING MONEY AT SCREEN AND NOTHING HAPPENING


BFR's were confirmed as NOT in the game months and months ago. They realize their One major gamebreaking mistake, and aren't bringing it back.

Max is a class now, so no one in the videos was that Class. They are in the game. And fully customizable. Every faction kept their AI and Armor varients, Burster and Flamethrower are common pool, and you pick what your 2 arms are equiped with. This was all stated in a Webcast about a week and a half ago I sat in on.

The video trailers have me curious. I'll certainly be giving it a go. I do have a couple of questions which I'm curious to see the answers to: MAX? BFR?

I wonder how they will deal with those.

I see it uses hitscanning, but thats expected anymore I spose.

When he was showing the loadout screen, I was like 'EQUIP A MAX!' I didn't see anyone using one so maybe they aren't in yet. Still, nice gameplay and I'm happy to see some of the old vehicles and their 'modern' redesign.

Finally! Gameplay videos; and quite in-depth ones at that. I loved Planetside and can't wait for this installment. I was glad to hear them talk about side-grades rather than upgrades. I was quite worried that the new systems wouldn't be keeping in spirit with that aspect of Planetside. It's good to hear otherwise.
