This looks good, thoroughly looking forward to this game, loved playing the original but was unable to pay to play back then, and now this is bigger, better AND free...er.

Edit: Wow, it really is the ones who don't try who get it, yay!

Me and a group of friends are gonna make and outfit on NC !

@Hawker: Yeah xD i got it the same way, without even trying

They are thoroughly camouflaged, so long as they are among zebras. Or like, sleeping on zebra-print couches.

I'm super excited about this. I was a huge fan of the original Planetside and I'm hoping this game brings modernization to the only game of its type.

Posted by ThreePi

I haven't been excited for a game this much since Half-Life 2. Game looks absolutely amazing. Also, SOE is giving all vets of the original Planetside 30 days of gametime to get back into the original for some community driven "send-off" even on July 1st. Should be fun to see.

looks pretty good and im super excited now that i got my priority access to the beta through the planetside twitter

@Hawker: players of the original planetside get priority access to the beta above everybody else

A distant world called... Arrakis? Iraqsis? what?

I am SO freakin' stoked! When this game is full tilt, it is some of the most fun you can have with 100+ people.

Ive been needing some Planetside goodness for the last few years

Edited by Devildoll

I got to give it up to the narrator here, he spits some solid game.

The actual game looks very robust as well, i got to keep an eye on this.

Posted by DeviTiffany

Really looking forward to it, looks amazing. I've been sold on the game since watching the E3 stream from the show floor TotalBiscuit did with SoE.

What does a beta Key from twitter count as? Is it the same level as the PC gamer Key, or better, or worse?

Sorry a little confused here.

And the game looks bloody awesome!

Well, now I know what colors my Heavy Assault and Max classes are gonna sport into battle.

"I AM WEARING A ZEBRA PATTERN! SHOOT AT ME!"

Posted by Hawker

Gah, I give up on Twitter, those people only ever reply to people who spout some stupid bullcrap anyways :( guess I'll just have to live without Planetside 2

Posted by poser

Welcome back PC shooters, it's been far too long.

Also why is SOE saving this genre, shouldn't it be Vavle or something??

Posted by MeatSim

Sick Zebra prints on everyone and everything.

Posted by DougQuaid

Hopefully there will be better balance between the faction weapons and vehicles.

Posted by Otzlowe

The game sounds fun, but those characters and vehicles are the bad kind of sci-fi design. Not exactly pretty.

Edited by doomocrat

Beta key hierarchy as I understand it from reading their releases on planetside-universe (Which is the place to go for PS news) is like this:

PS1 Vet/Paid (How they will determine this is not yet nailed down.)

PC Gamer/Twitter

General Applicant

TR/NC Scum who need to die in laser induced brutality (okay not this one but the rest is legit)

If you want to check veteran status, go to your station account right now. 30 days free, amigo. A wild guess would be that if you got time here, chances are you're in first wave beta. PlanetSide day is July 1st. Get rollin' or preferably hoverin'!

This just makes me want to play some Section 8: Prejudice multiplayer again. I wonder how that community's doing these days...

Unless you pirate games this is a fucking moronic comment.

Pay to win gameplay means: the more money one pay's in a free to play game, the more powerful their character is.

My comment had nothing to do with pirating.

No, but unless you pirate a game you're still paying to play the damn game. Hence...moronic. You're still going to be able to get (at least most of) the stuff in the game without paying, it's just going to take longer. Micro transactions allow those of us with less time and more money to keep up with the hard core players.

Posted by Lightdud

@SmilingPig: Pay to win? How? You buy camo and EXP boosters. Majority of weapons are slight upgrades or side-grades.

Heck, if you like the other team's weapons better you can buy those even, I hear.

Posted by SmilingPig

@Lightdud: The way it sounds in the video, you buy weapon upgrades to make your self more powerful. If its with exp. than good (meens I fucked up) if its with money its pay to win.

Posted by SmilingPig

@Vodun: Ok, I agree with you... now what?

Unless they're fighting on ZB-02 of the Zebra system, they're pretty fucked.

Posted by Noizemaze

Rolling TR, just like I did in the original. Looking forward to it.

Edited by crusader8463

Seeing the still image for this video gave me an idea for a clan. "The ZeeBrahs™" We will all have the Zebra stripe camo and we will end every sentence with Brah.

Posted by SmokePants

I give them credit for not using the term "guild". There are a thousand words to describe an association of players and MMO's have been stuck on the lamest-sounding one. "Ooh, I play MMO's and am in a guild! Maybe someday, my testicles will descend from my abdominal cavity!"

Edited by avantegardener

I don't even need to press play..

Edit:

Sooo, any actual gameplay then?

My appolgies if I scrub through, there is about 4 seconds.

Edited by Twinblade34

@SmilingPig: Gotta love people making assumptions without actually knowing anything. at no point they said you can pay to get upgrades and become powerful, and i in fact know that they will only sell exp boosters and purely cosmetic stuff, so please do your research before spreading false rumors.

Posted by Icaria

Looks good but Rainman didn't exactly sell it for me.

Posted by Bartz

When will you guys do a piece on this game? I feel like you haven't even mentioned it before now.

Posted by yoshisaur

I truly don't think there is another game in the world that I want so badly to be out already. I just want to play this game and be part of the epicness that is their intense fire-fights.

Release it now, SOE!

Posted by Dberg

I'll believe the player cap of 1000 when I see it, but even if it's just 150vs150vs150 like the last game, it'll be amazing. That said, these guys couldn't make a good trailer even if there lives were at stake.

They know "pay to win" would just create rage. Why would they want to ruin their game like that?

Comon, Jeff! 
 
You know you're stoked too!
