Sony Online Entertainment Creative Director Matt Higby shows off the highlights of the MMOFPS Planetside 2 and it’s massive world, deep customization and large scale battles. There’s a cycling day and night system and lots of vehicle customization to satisfy the demands of people who want to pimp out their tanks, I guess.
This is one of the nicest looking alphas I’ve ever seen, there’s definitely huge promise for the future of this title. The idea of playing an FPS in an open and persistent world that is actually somehow balanced seems like something one would have only dreamed of a decade ago.
