Planetside 2
« on: August 06, 2012, 09:28:52 am »
Anyone looked at this? I'm hearing a lot of rumblings, even from battlefield guys on youtube who are in the closed beta already, that this game is magnificent and a shoe in for game of the year when its released. MMOFPS kinda like BF, but set in the future far as I can tell, and the maps and game in general is 20/30 times bigger than the average battlefield one :O I just signed up for the beta here and a video, with more links to others.





Gotta say, I'm intrigued if nothing else by the size of the gameplay. From what I have garnered, you play on a "continent" of up to 2000 players, so one battle can theoretically consist of 800 people, and one base would be the same size as the whole of heavy metal or two caspian borders. I'm trying to get in the beta, but I reckon I'll still give it a go as an alternative to bfbc2 once in a while anyway, once its released.

Haven´t looked into it yet - Was going too last night but forgot - level cap is considering it for his next "thing" on his channel so I thought I´d check it out. Super knows who lvl cap is - he´s a groupie of him :D Anyways on that subject check out lvl cap on youtube for one of the better BF3 youtubers...

However the scale seems immense - seeing how hard it is to get 32 v 32 to work on bf3 I don´t know about hundreds in Planetside but we´ll see.

Got my key for this today and am downloading now, anyone else gonna try this game out?

Hoping it's not going to be a bf3 clone on larger scale!

Trying to live forever, so far so good!

Heavy assault has rockets. Useful for tanks and vehicles. Specially quads. Though there is a class called max where you spawn in a sweet mech suit like the end of aliens. Comes in anti tank/inf and anti air flavours. Heavy assault rockets sort them good.

skip towards the end for a nice visual scale of how big the area i was fighting in really is, and how many people are around. Plus, futuristic rockets are always sweet.

I was thinking, if its free to play, what's the catch? Is it pay to win?

Not thus far. I have found the credits to unlock weapons and attachments vvvveeeeery easy to get. But I too have had concerns about this. I have a niggling feeling that the only reason shit is so easy to unlock is because its in beta, so they can be tested. Will it be the same after release? Who knows, but you'd have to figure there is a catch somewhere.

Having said that, the basic weapons you start with are more than competent, I have on occasion come up against people using some insane shit that drops you instantly, but on the whole, its pretty balanced. Just have to wait and see how or if things change in the full version. It'd be a shame if they fucked up what could be a brilliant game that way. I'd sooner it have been a paid title if so.
