PlanetSide 2 Celebrates Fifth Anniversary With a Patch

The PlanetSide 2 Forums celebrate the fifth anniversary of PlanetSide 2, the multiplayer shooter sequel which launched on this day in 2012 (thanks Dave). There is a new patch with user-interface and quality-of-life improvements, and they are now offering sales of three different anniversary bundles with all sorts of in-game gear. They are also offering double experience until Friday. Here's a bit:

On November 20, PlanetSide 2 celebrates its fifth anniversary as the world’s most massively multiplayer online first person shooter. From launch to now, our players have played for more than 211,215,456 hours combined, that’s 24,111 years’ worth of combat on the vast, battle-scarred planet of Auraxis.

To commemorate the occasion, any player can redeem the code “5YearsPS2” in the Depot and receive a free fifth anniversary decal! Double Experience will also be running from Nov. 17 to Nov. 24. (Members will receive quadruple experience on Friday, Nov. 24!)

I've played this since launch and literally just uninstalled it last week after realizing that, while it is fun, the gunplay that the entire experience is based around is so poor that getting shot around corners is pretty much just a core gameplay mechanic, and that is something that is never going to change. It's all glitz, but very lacking in substance with a very wobbly foundation it is built upon. I did have some fun with this over the years, but it is not really worth playing as either an MMO or a shooter, at this point.

I loved PS1, played it from the start. Was excited about PS2, but just couldn't get into it.

That's pretty much my feeling going from PS1 to PS2
