Get a closer look at the amazing Alpha game footage of PlanetSide 2, an MMOFPS currently in development, presented at this year’s GDC.
PlanetSide 2 is an epic MMOFPS game that offers a truly competitive and visceral FPS experience with massive warfare, massive customization and massive community. In this video Sony Online Entertainment Creative Director Matt Higby walks through some of PlanetSide 2's Alpha highlights from the most recent gameplay demo including examples of air combat, vehicle combat, infantry combat and an overview of maps and environments on the alien planet of Auraxis.
PlanetSide 2 takes all the groundbreaking features from the original game – massive multiplayer battles, distinctive empires to rally around, and enormous continents to support intense ground and air combat – and adds features that modern gamers have come to expect out of the FPS and MMO genres.
Across the continents of Auraxis, thousands of players will come together in enormous battles to win control of territory and resources for their empire. With an extensive skill tree and a free-form class-based system, players will be able to customize their soldier, weapons and vehicles to match their play-style, or the needs of their squad, outfit or empire. Battles can last for days or weeks, so players will need to build real alliances and combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With air, ground and seaborne combat, the battles are more intense than ever.
