PlanetSide 2 Announced

The PlanetSide 2 Website now offers the promised announcement of PlanetSide 2, a follow-up to SOE's MMO shooter. They offer some screenshots and concept art, a teaser trailer showing cinematics and gameplay, and a FAQ saying the game will be an MMOFPS, will include three factions, and will offer vehicular combat. They plan a beta before release, but a release date and the game's business model are not being revealed at this time. Here's word from the FAQ:

What is PlanetSideŽ 2?
PlanetSide 2 is a Massively Multiplayer first person shooter that delivers truly epic, massive combat on a scale never before seen in stunning, breathtaking detail. Battles take place not between dozens of troops, but thousands; with air and ground vehicles slugging it out alongside squads of troops. Whether in open fields, tightly-packed urban centers or enormous structures, winning requires strategic teamwork and a quick trigger finger.

Is PlanetSide 2 an MMO?
Yes. PlanetSide 2 is an MMO FPS set in an online persistent world where the war wages non-stop and the balance of power shifts with every base and territory captured and lost. Players will be able to unlock diverse combat roles by advancing through the deep skill trees, including several classic roles from PlanetSide. As players unlock new roles, they can switch between them at will.

This person knows what they're talking about. PS is a good game, still is fun to play. If they re-do it decently it will be popular. People are sick of Elves, Orcs, Dwarfs, and all that shit.

And actually has gameplay depth. Something that Halo has little of

Disagreed on both sides.
Planetside, at least at launch, was just a slow, shallow shooter. The actual combat was terrible.


Planetside was "slow" in the sense that it took preparation and planning, unless of course you were a solo newb and just wanted to frag people. (HINT: Probably not the game for you if you were that type.)

Until you've been apart of a 100+ person assault fielding a sky full of Galaxys, Reavers, and Mosquitos, hotdropping into enemy territory and claiming bases for your empire you have no idea about depth or combat in Planetside.
