Can't wait.

PlanetSide was such an amazing game, especially for its time, and I'm glad to see that it is finally getting the spotlight it deserved all those years ago with the amazing progress and unheard of level of community interaction that is going into the development of this sequel.

As someone who watched the original game be developed and played since beta, I can't wait to get back into the fight as soon as SOE deems I am allowed.

Used to hack the heck out of those bozos as Vanu Infiltrator. Back in the day you could have clipped your hacking tool inside the command console while cloaked and they wouldn't even see the red laser beam while you hacked away. Good times.

I was a Terran Heavy back in the day. Wouldn't mind those days coming back.

Just signed up for the beta today. Too bad I have never played the original Planetside.

God, if there was ever a game I would trade all the other games for in the world of play, it would be Planetside 2. I really hope SOE takes away what they did wrong and what they did right in Planetside 1 and makes this one hell of a contender in the MMO and FPS market.

Here's to hoping, and I'll be playing regardless of the outcome. Curious to see how the F2P model works, if that is still the case.

TERRAN REPUBLIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it's just MAG - soldiers, guerrillas, and high-tech mercenaries.

That would also mean the guerrillas are going to dominate the entire game. Sweet.

This feels like a blatant MAG rip-off...

The nostalgia factor attached to the word 'Planetside' is almost unbearable for me. I cannot wait for this game.

Woah, the VS infiltrator suit looks a little bit too much like the Cyborg Ninja.

It is a MAG rip off. Just like how Warhammer copied Warcraft and then Warcraft copied Kung Fu Panda.

The above statement is known as sarcasm.

@n0ne: Must be a joke. No ones that stupid

Like the last Planetside, I'm going to choose the faction who are using bullets instead of weak-ass-sounding lasers

Edited by Grondoth

Hmm. I wonder if there's more specialized vehicles per side now, since they showed the mosquito for the TR and the reaver for NC. Maybe I'm just overthinking it.

But if I can't drive a purple bus with a huge amount of guns on it I'm going to get upset.

Oh.. I stand corrected, I guess it's vise versa. My apologies. Never heard of Planet Side until this video.

Looks awesome :) Don't know if my rig will be able to handle 200+ character models all looking that good on screen but we shall see ;)

Posted by Orlandun

@Grondoth:

There are still a large staple of non-specific vehicles in the game. However, they are supposed to have more specialized vehicles this time around instead of just a tank here and a jeep there. I don't know about the mosq and the reaver specifically but they will have more specific faction vehicles this time around.

Posted by Kordesh

As much as I would like to think this could end up good, I can't. As soon as I see that "SoE" logo on ANYTHING it's fate is sealed. They will, without fail, find SOME way to fuck it up. Even if it started out as game of the year, they will do SOMETHING to turn it into a money sucking trash-heap by the end of the first year or so.

@MONKEYFIST: The 2 never tipped you off?

...

Posted by Ubersmake

I never played the first game. I had a 56k modem to connect to the Internet when the first game was released. But I want to give this one a fair shake. I did the whole beta signup dance after watching this video.

F2P, if that's the route this game is still going, worries me. I'm already seeing the pay-gates in the Tribes Ascend beta, and that game isn't an MMO. This one is, right? And maybe this one will be the game to pull it off, but I've yet to see Free 2 Play, MMO, and Competitive mesh well together in a game.

Posted by FMinus

Well what they are showing now, looks more like a beautification patch for Planetside, nothing new at all. If this will be Planetside 1 with a new engine, I'm out. Planetside was enormous fun, but there needs to be something more to get me back into that game....

Barney domination! Although I remember being mad jealous about the smurfs Jackhammer and the TR's guns as well. Also, is bozo the term for TR? I forget what we called those guys before drowning them in lasher fire.

I actually can't remember a nickname for the TR. I remember each side being jealous of the other side's weapons though...that's weapon balance.

Unless this is free-to-play in some form I am probably not gonna get into it.

Oh yeah, it makes total sense! Thank you! :)

Also, blowing up a fully loaded APC with the standard Barney laser-rifle set to AP: good times.

Hopefully the Terran army has siege tanks!
