We recently caught up with PlanetSide 2 creative director Matt Higby to discuss the just launched PlanetSide 2 Players Site and more.
The PlanetSide 2 Players Site continues a similar trend in contemporary FPS games in that it provides a web-based tie-in to the game that offers deep statistical information about all the game’s minutiae at players’ fingertips. You can track your own personal statistics out of the game, compare them to friends’, or even check out the stat breakdowns of other players. If you’ve played around with say, the Battlefield 3 Battlelog, you’ll be right at home with the PS2 Players Site. The granular level of information available is pretty mind-blowing. Not only can you track things like how many kills other players are getting with certain weapons, you can even narrow it down further and find out how many kills a player is getting with a gun vs. different factions.
