Planetside is a nine-year-old MMOFPS for PC, and for it’s time, it did a lot for the PC multiplayer community. I don’t know what inspired Sony Online Entertainment to pursue the franchise again, but Planetside 2 is happening, and it looks nothing short of stellar.
To generate awareness and support those who just want to know more about the new title, SOE will be releasing a series of developer diaries and inside scoops for Planetside 2 called Command Center. The first Command Center video was just released recently and shows off how far along the game has came from Planetside 1 to the development of the game to the reception of the game at trade shows.
Speaking of the game being shown off, a new character class for PS2 was also demoed in the video. The infiltrator is the stealth-reconnaissance-sniper class with major impact on gameplay. Players can go invisible and wreak havoc on unsuspecting noobs, who are a little too careless in their actions.
The reception for the game has truly been amazing, though. The game has been nominated for many awards and even won many of the categories that is was nominated for.
Planetside 2 looks really detailed and fun. To get in on the beta go ahead and click here. The beta launches sometime next month for high priority players of the game and sometime close to that date for all newer registers. The game honestly looks awesome. Catch the full developer video below to see what I’m talkin’ ’bout!
