PlanetSide 2 : the One Daybreak game people don’t hate.
The War goes on as long as men hate.
6 years is no small task for a free to play shooter, but Planet side 2 has almost done it, with its 6th birthday just a few weeks away its aging well!
How is it looking?
Graphics, weapon design and map design are all fair to good, very much a older AAA title, but AAA none the less, the combat is smooth and lightning fast with a wide array of load outs and specialization providing countless hours of replay ability.
Much to Do?
The addition of Vehicles and stationary defenses help lend to the feeling you are in a war, stakes are high and with territory being claimed and lost 24/7 today’s war front may be tomorrows home front!
Many people around?
While the exact player count is unknown steam alone shows 1-2k average, with others playing the standalone client its safe to at least double that, while its not massive i was able to find 25v25 fights consistently.
Jump right into the action.
Game like this can often devolve into run to battle, 5 mins later arrive, die, re-spawn run back and frankly that is boring, in PlanetSide 2 you can teleport right to the nearest hot spot and begin fragging and pwning noobs! totally 1999!
Worth a play?
While the engine is dated, the game is still active at all times of the day, especially if you play from the EU, its free to play for standard access and is available as part of the Daybreak All Access Pass, a fantastic multi game subscription which gives you perks in all daybreak games that offer premium membership, all for a single subscription cost!
Not all titles are available at every retailer.
