Hmm...

PlanetSide 2 isn't really for me.

Posted by Barbadus

Excited!

Posted by yoshisaur

That was one hell of a trailer, I must admit...

Posted by boxoflawls

I'm sort of excited, i think the beta starts on monday. I didn't have a key so oh well. Still really worried about the free-to-play model

It should have cut to him respawning in the spawntubes after being stabbed.

Posted by theimmortalbum

I love the premise of Planetside.. but I just don't think I'll be playing.

Posted by AbeBroHamLincon

i didnt know there was a planet side 1 lol.

Posted by emem

Wow, hopefully the game will be that good.

Posted by Humanity

Planetside 1 was fun up to a point and that was a really awesome trailer. I played as Vanu and I was just as sneaky as those doods in the trailer - hacking CC's right in front of people guarding them by clipping my hack tool into the podium.

Posted by paulwade1984

wow, and all that without ever reloading his weapon. Well, at least his Jetpack ran out of fuel.

It's nowhere near to what was shown in this CG trailer.

You can check out TotalBiscuit youtube channel if you're interested in actual gameplay (beta) footage.

Posted by beepmachine

That was fantastic. I have no idea what planetside is.

@dennisthemennis:

Iconic FPS MMO

From the days of yore

Posted by Argo15

Cool!

Posted by emem
@Tennmuerti: Yeah, I know what the game is and I've seen quite a bit of TB's content, but it's hard to tell from videos whether the game is fun or not. I'll definitely give it a shot.

I love the Starship Troopers aesthetic.

Vanu Sovereignty knows what's up.

NC scum. Vanu all the way.

Damn straight.

Well-produced trailer but the whole one-man army theme does not fit the game.

@Humanity: Do you remember Gal-drops? That game was some real fun..

Hence why it ends with 50 bajillion ships.

He didn't fire all THAT much...

Posted by dezvous

Is there any truth to being able to clamber along the side of large ships because that would be freaking awesome. Or can you at least land on top of them etc?

I remember one of the devs saying that it's possible to jetpack on top of a galaxy and shoot the pilot to take it down.

Was there ever a successful one? Every one I was involved in ended up with us all dying real quick or getting spread out and then dying later.

Posted by Silvergun

Mr. Soldier really needs a lesson in mission creep.

Posted by Grimhild

Typical. Easy mode... I mean... Vanu come in at the tail end of a great stand-up fight between the NC and the TR... Pfft.

I'm kidding, calm down.

I saw the Strumgrenadier outfit do several well coordinated Gal drops. Those cats could roll. Also, the Gal is now the mobile spawn unit, so instead of just having everyone bail (pilot included), it's better to drop your passengers and then actually find a good landing zone. They're tweaking the Galaxy to make it like an OP for the offensive force once it's landed, basically.

If 90% of your squad doesn't die then it's not a 'proper' Gal drop.

Also Vanu kicked butt and had some pretty sweet armor. In the trailer it looks like Vanu is recruiting hot chicks into their forces so I'm all for it!

@Erik: You better not be saying that based solely on this trailer.

Posted by hxcaleb

Very effective marketing. I wasn't excited for this game, and now for some reason I am!

Posted by dcsears

Oh wow, cool video, it's highlighting a bunch of really sweet things that will never happen to you while playing Planetside 2.

Posted by Spiritof

A fall from 15,000 feet, barely a scratch.

Stealth knife, instant death.

I really wish this was actual game-play footage.

Would be pretty awesome if they had dynamic drawn out death scenes with flashbacks to the victim's childhood and civilian life - the last time he spoke to his wife, reassuring her he'll come back home after the assignment, him grasping for a photograph of her, heavy breathing and the heartbeat getting weaker, fade out to black .. and BAM - RESPAWN.

"Not actual gameplay"

Ok then, done watching this. (exits video)

Posted by MeatSim

Not actual gameplay because this would never happen in the actual game.

Edited by k4el

That NC trooper fights like he's a 40k marine lost in a different game. 0o

Also... Vanu. Winning as they should.

Posted by poser

I was sold after GDC. This trailer is for the console kids.

All the gameplay footage of this game looks amazing. This is the real REAL Battlefield game DICE failed to give us.

Posted by toots

one of the coolest cg trailers i've seen for sure

Edited by Zaccheus

I don't understand the hate for CGI trailers, they can be fun. Maybe this doesn't tell anything about the game, it's still a gorgeous piece of media. Short movie if you will. There is SO MUCH gameplay of this game already on the internet, why would you even need more?

@Veektarius said:

Maybe you didn't watch to the end? The whole point was that that dude was awesome, but he is still just one guy and there are thousands of enemies coming in.

Yeah, only console players enjoy CGI trailers/cutscenes. Brilliant observation there, idiot.

Posted by CaptainInvictus

Honestly the only thing this trailer needed was, as the Vanu forces closed in all tightly-packed, a red beam with spiralling white energy pierces the clouds right in the middle of them, completing the cycle of each faction fucking each other over.

so edgy and cool XD!!!

Posted by staticmigrant

Certainly the most interesting shooter that is on the horizon so far.

Posted by Oddy4000

I was broke when Planetside came out, otherwise I would have played it longer - It was a ton of fun playing a stealth hacker, stealing bases out from under people.

Posted by TouchMyBox

I've been having a lot of fun with this one. It feels like such a leap above all of the competition. The graphical fidelity combined with the scope of the game with the amount of players and shit happening on screen all at once with no noticeable lag is simply mind-boggling.

Posted by desolation15

Forget Planetside 2! I wanna play the game shown on the trailer! That, and I'm totally using the stealth faction.

And I thought the death animation from BF3 was bad.
