[Game website] Putting the “massive” into Massive Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG). That is my impression of PlanetSide 2 so far. Developed by Sony Online Entertainment, this sequel to the already-famous online FPS takes the warfare to the next level. Over at GDC 2012, the company was on hand to give gamers a view of what to expect.
Imagine this scenario: thousand of players in the same persistent map, 3 warring factions, air and land based vehicles combat, several roles/ classes players can switch in the middle of gameplay, maps covering hundreds of kilometers (meaning a single game can last for a few days, weeks to months) and more. While the business model is not confirmed, I seriously dun mind a monthly cost, if it is cheaper than the normal prices out there now.
Updated the post with GameSpot’s interview below! PlanetSide 2 is set to take the MMO genre by storm, even if the prequel already did at a smaller scale and impact. Cant’ wait!
