SOE on PlanetSide 2 in 2025

Smed's Blog has word from SOE's John Smedley on their goal of supporting PlanetSide 2 for more than a decade in a massive update about the MMOFPS sequel, following a tweet showing off concept art for a Bastion Fleet Carrier being designed for the game (thanks VG247 where they also note a post on Massively discussing plans to make Station Cash purchases in the game available account-wide). Here's a portion of the post on the game's future:

We have games that have run for over 13 years, so when we're making Planetside 2 we aren't looking at what it's like in 2012. We're thinking about a game we plan to have running in 2025. Yeah. Really. I plan on doing a lot of direct comparisons to other games. When I'm doing that in no way do I want any of this to be viewed as me slamming other games. I've played the heck out of Battlefield 2 and 3 as well as BFBC2. I've also played a ton of MW2 and MW3 as well as TF2. I am primarily a PC gamer. I've also played on teams extensively. All of the above games are amazing and are made by people with tremendous talent and passion that I have the utmost respect for. We're making Planetside 2 to be a game we at SOE want to play. We've gotten a lot of inspiration from elements of the above games as well as many other games.. including our own and especially from the original Planetside which we released back in 2003. Well ahead of it's time. This isn't meant to be a super comprehensive FAQ on Planetside 2 - just some things I wanted to get out there after reading a lot of questions and comments. Also - it's late.. I'm not spending a ton of time formatting this too well, so sorry for the wall of text in many spots.

There is nothing quite like PS2, this is true. However even on radeon 7950's and i7 processors on 64 bit Windows 7, there are terrible FPS problems in large fights, and worse than bad fps, is horrible non registering weapons.

While their AMD support has been outright terrible, and it's taxing on many machines. I don't know anyone with an i7 and a 680 GTX who has had issues. i7 and other lower GPU's, definitely.

I myself run 2 6870's in Crossfire, and a Phenom 2 3.6GHz Quad Core. And after some fiddling around the other night, I've overclocked the graphics cards by about 10% each, and Overclocked my processor to 4.0GHz, as well as installed the AMD 12.11 Beta 8 drivers (Which have Planetside Crossfire support in them) and have since had fewer issues. I almost always have a 30+ FPS, usually closer to 40 which is definitely more playable than the 10-25 I was getting before doing these things. The game also still has a terrible godawful memory leak they need to fix as I (And others, including the guys I play with that have i7's and 680's) have to reboot after a few hours of play to smooth everything out again after it's dropped to unplayable levels.

The game is by no means perfect technically. But as far as Gameplay I couldn't ask for a better game in a Planetside sequel, so overall I'm happy. The technical issues will go away with time.
