I highly doubt that... Dust514, and Firefall for that matter, can't touch Planetside. Planetside is strictly player battles, not NPCs with dumb AI. If you want to play a game where you kill monster or NPCs then go right ahead... But nothing will match the scale of Planetside when it comes to depth, gameplay, and most importantly, teamwork.

Nothing immerses you more in a FPS game than a MASSIVE battle that is driven by the players... not the game. In Planetside, YOU play the game... The game doesn't play you.

Yes PS1 as it is currently I believe is 3 factions with a max of 133 per faction per continent.  All three factions can be on same continent fighting each other.  Getting anywhere close to that lead to great fights in Planetside that have never been matched in anything I have played.


I too am hoping very much they don't mess it up.

Also if you need more info www.planetside-universe.com is a great place.  This interview is getting great reception there.

I swear the pop lock used to be much bigger back in 2003, infact I even remember when they were trying to break a record and got something like 3400 people onto a Single Island Battle.

yea planetside had i think 188vs188v188, around those numbers at launch...could have been higher, its 133 vs 133 vs 133 now though.

its highly possibly they will have over 1000 people per continent in PS2.

Mega dittos on most of the comments.  Nothing has come close to Planetside battles before or since in the gaming world.  Bridge battles, multiple galaxy drops, manning turrets, putting on a MAX suit, just so much fun, and so many different ways to have fun if you get tired doing a certain thing.  This is the only true MMO I am looking forward to.

With that said, I just want to point out a few questionable things in the interview.  It's a little nit picky, but still a bit troubling to me.

"...Some of the high-level features of this engine include: physically based light models, deferred lighting pipeline, volumetric scattering, highly detailed character shaders and a bunch of other stuff that's way over my head but the coders tell me are pretty great to have."

That's all well and good, but just remember to make it playable on most rigs and not a lag fest.  Hope they remember that not everyone wants to spend $1500 on a new system to play a game.  We want population, not people getting frustrated because it won't run on their system.

"We went to a class system for a couple reasons..."

Ugh.  This was one of the things I loved about PS1.  NOT having a class system.  It did things so differently than other MMOs.  I don't know how the class system will work other than what was explained in the one paragraph, but the not knowing what abilites your enemy had made it a bit more exciting to me.  If you can see, "oh he's a medic, easy kill", it kind of takes the fun out of it for me.  And I hope it's not too restrictive in how you can build your character.  I liked the different combos you could make in your skills and not be so locked down into one area.

"...you can take a turn too fast on your quad and you may flip, you can do barrel rolls with the empire specific fighters, etc., it's a really cool evolution over the vehicle combat from original PlanetSide."

Again, why change what worked from PS1?  On occasion you could flip your vehicle, but you didn't have to worry about the physics of vehicles, and it was relatively easy to drive and shoot.  I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt here though and see how it goes.

"No to A.N.Ts at launch..."

Noooooo.  I loved the ANTs.  Added an element to base battles that made them more interesting.  I been in a few fun base battles where energy was down to 10%, and someone sneaks in an ANT in the last few seconds to save the day.  Gave the base enough energy to keep it alive before the ANT was blown up.  Very fun.  Hope they do put them in "down the road" as he says.

"...These resources can be used for all sorts of cool stuff from unlocking new items in the marketplace to spawning vehicles and equipping attachments."

Oh dear god.  Please don't tell me there is going to be a market, economy, auction, etc.  One of the major things that kept me playing this game is that there was no currency.  That eliminates private tells like "Hey, go to www.somedumbname.com to get free credits!!!".  That also eliminates unfair advantages like for only $3.95 more you can buy 10,000 Sony dollars to get this neat "Uber-noob-killer-5000 Jackhammer", that people who don't pay can't have!  Please don't tell me this will be made into a pay-to-win game.

I'd like to think that  they know better than that. 


I really would like to think that.

PlanetSide 2 will be free to play, but in what ways will you be looking to monetize the game at launch? How mindful are you of nailing the balance between free play and paid items?




Well, one thing we’re committed to is ensuring that players who pay and those who don’t are on an even playing field, so that PlanetSide2 doesn’t become a “Pay-to-Win” experience.




Items that affect your PvP gameplay will always be acquirable through gameplay, the types of things that will be sold for our virtual currency StationCash would be cosmetic changes, convenience items, and the like.
