PlanetSide 2 is a scifi MMOFPS from Sony Online Entertainment that takes all the best features of the original PlanetSide and brings them into the modern gaming age, adding improvements that are expected in the genre. Players join one of three factions (Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, or Vanu Sovereignty) and engage in combat on foot, vehicles, or the skies. Battle across open fields to urban centers with and against hundreds of other players to control key territories and valuable resources.
PlanetSide 2 has released a new update that brings construction into the game, so don your hardhats and start looking for a new mineral called "Cortium". Special harvesters called "ANTs" (Advanced Nanite Transports) are deployed to collect and refine the ore for use.
The9 has revealed that it will not extend its Chinese publishing contract for PlanetSide 2 according to a report at MMOCulture. The game will remain available through May 31st. PlanetSide 2 originally launched in 2013 but did not captivate the audience over the long haul.
It is in those moments, where everything about Planetside 2 is moving in perfect concert, that the battles you fight can astound you with their immensity. You'll run through valley floors as columns of tanks exchange fire and aircraft engage in dogfights and strafe your position, reviving downed players as a combat medic. You'll jetpack your way onto a facility roof alongside your squad, ambushing several pesky infiltrators with sniper rifles picking off your main force.
