Some of us have never heard about the original Planetside, an MMO FPS with massive FPS battles with thousands of players ON EACH TEAM in ANY GIVEN TIME, fighting over persistant world over territories (not just short 15 minute matches, you can play ALL DAY on one single small piece of land wich is in a gigantic continent) . But with Planetside 2, a sequel of it, rocking at E3 at the moment, it caught my attention.

The Factions are three, and some of the people who have played the first game are VERY, i mean VERY faction loyal, the first one is the militaristic run-of-the mill Terran Republic, with fast firing weapons and bullets.

The second one is the rebellious New conglomerate, who broke off from the Terran Republic and are now fighting for freedom and survival (mostly their own survival tough), they look rough, they are rough, and they have slow but hard hitting weapons.

The third one is the Vanu sovereignity, wich has found and explored various alien ruins to fulfill their agenda of modernising the human race, wich means hover tanks, fighter craft wich flies like an UFO, and they have plasma energy weapons, wich are fast firing, dont do as much damage as the Terran but they dont have to worry about bullet drop and dispersion.

The site for the game is this:<linked removed>

And it has great coverage by Totalbiscuit himlself, most may not know him but he is a very good...games journalist? I don't know how to put it, link to his channel wich has some planetside 2 streams from E3, where it was put for demonstration purposes and wins prizes like crazy: <linked removed>

I personally am very excited to check this game out once it goes off into beta or if I am unlucky, when it goes live, and i have allready chosen my faction, the New Conglomerate (altough its still not completely sure, other factions have their appeal aswell) and my class, a light assault class (alltough medic and engineer are also kinda nice)

It's fine to discuss other games, but it's not okay to advertise/post links for other games.

Per the rules:

For me it looks really awesome. I'm gonna play it if my computer is able to run it.

One of their devs said it should be able to run on 5 year old computers with dual core and Nvidia 9800, wich is exactly what i have, so im hoping, praying.

It won quite a few prizes at E3, Gamespy even awarded them three prizes, including Best PC Game. :)

TotalBiscuit played the first PlanetSide well before WoW, well before he even made a carreer as reviewer.
