[Pc free 2 play] Planet Side 2

Postby Khaja on Fri Jun 22, 2012 9:54 pm

ok so i've been hyped up about this game since seeing first trailers about a couple of years ago. It looks like it may be released this year but has no release date as of yet, much like GW2. So i was wondering....

Who else wants to create a UKCS outfit (the name used for clans in game) for planetside 2?? could be one faction or an outfit for each (depends on numbers of course)

or hell who is looking forward to it?

It does look really good. My main problem however is that I don't think it will actually be good unless you are part of a big clan; taking part in large scale coordinated battles. I don't see myself having the time or the will to be part of something like that. Although it being free to play is a massive boost.

The usual problem of this type of massive FPS battle games is usually the BF series of issues with spawn camping, take that away and generally speaking players tend to work together even if not communicating.... happened a lot in the older BF series ( I especially remember it in 2142 , but even in BF3 if you got lucky to get on a relatively balanced server).

Since this game wont have static respawn or unprotected spawns... you can switch to a new area if you cant get anywhere in your current battle , and the footage I saw of it shows the spawns in marked rooms.
Now if only they will be able to deal with cheaters , and hopefully not by offloading that chore to Evenbalance, whose anti cheat is the most cracked and well known online... damn PB seems to kick more legit players than cheaters.

I am sort of hoping it works out, I miss 2142 style plays and Bad Co 2 and BF3 dropped the ball as far as I am concerned.... and damn that night time battle footage TotalBiscut showed off looked sweet ( tracer fire, headlamps, forts light up, oh man ).

I am more looking forward to Firaxes X-Com, and desperatly hoping they dont mess it up... but you know they will :P There is no way anyone could please X-Com fans... even if you make the same game, lol.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Considering the existence of the 'other' XCOM, it's going to be difficult for Firaxis to make a game the fans hate more than that.

Don't worry. Planetside deals with spawning in a COMPLETELY unlike-Battlefield way. Considering there are multiple continents, and if your faction is any good whatsoever, multiple spawn facilities in any area, that won't be an issue. In fact, tactical denial of reinforcements is a perfectly valid tactic, and if people can't deal with it in the way that Planetside handles it, they should probably go and curl up and go to play Hello Kitty Island Adventure instead.

In fact, there is NOTHING even remotely Battlefield-like about Planetside, and it handles the system brilliantly.

I'm certainly gonna give it a go. Along with GW2 and my third year of uni it may be hard to juggle the time aha. I certainly agree with the 2142 style gameplay, loved that game to bits. I hate BC2 for the simple fact that it emptied the damn 2142 servers ¬_¬.

Got into the beta and I have to say if you join a semi decent squad that works together for the objective it can be an extremely satisfying and enjoyable experience.

Hitching a lift in a Galaxy the other day turned into spending about three hours the other night causing hell with a group of noble TR soldiers. This game is fantastic and every bit as good as the first already.

Can't wait for full release.

The keys they're giving out for...pretty much anything are higher priority than normal signups, so it's worth a shot!

If you do this, you bloody well want a Terran Republic character! None of those Barney cultists or uncouth Smurfs!
