    i distinctively remeber the word "Huge" used to describe SWTOR worlds...let's hope this is a different kind of huge.

    As a FPS this looks pretty awesome.  I'm not sold on the persistent MMO part of it as I usually dislike mixing genres because invariably soemthing gets lost in translation.

    Best thing is, you doesn't even have to pay for it. It's F2P man. :)

     

    This game is THE game I've been waiting for since the original PlanetSide. I literally can't wait, and the game is looking so good already! I haven't been this excited since... well.

    Don't mind him, he's one of those who looks at the business model instead of the actual product itself. It usually takes a lot of time and effort to open their eyes.

    I'm not usually into FPS style games, but I did enjoy PS1.

    If this'll actually be free to play, I'll check it out again.

    Christ I hope this comes out sooner than later it looks like a dream come true.  I grew up using Macs and never got to experience PS1 myself so bring it on!

    Actually I have yet to find a f2p that doesn't have a cash shop and I am against cash shops in games.  I also prefer subs to f2p.   This is my preference, you have yours and I did not try to "open your eyes" to accept mine.   Enjoy your f2p cash shop games. I don't like them.

    Never played PS1 but can't wait to try this one out hoping there's room out there for casual cannon fodder and I get to see really big fights which I haven't seen in any game yet. My only concern is that this comes out too close to TSW, AA, or GW2 which I'm also interested in at least trying out. My recent frustrating experiences with MMORPGs have made me think  that I need something very different and PS2 might just fit the bill. Thumbs up for getting into the beta whenever they start...

    You didn't get the memo? Microtransactions are here to stay.  I guess you'll need to find a new hobby within the next couple of years by then sub only just won't exist.

    What can they sell without having an impact on gameplay? I can imagine some account features, but I can only come up with things that can be seen as gamebreakers.

     Three factions - finally someone gets it. 

     

    So tired of the stalemate or oversized faction x vs y red team vs blue team experience. 

     

    Thank you for getting it! :)

    They have said what will be in the cash shop and nothing is pay to win so far.  90% of it is cosmetics.   I have this gun but i want it to look like this so i buy that.   The gun is still the same gun just different look.

    Dunno tbh. Even in this early (and brief) video they said they wanted a level playing field for players. Of course that may or may not turn out to be true.  I'm sure with a bit of ingenuity they will come up with something.

    Looks excellent.  The F2P model will ensure that my friends are going to give it a try too.  Best of all, the FPS combat doesn't have any of that awful console feel to it like so many others these days.  No 3rd person, over the shoulder view and apparently, no craptastic cover mechanic.  Feels like an actual FPS, the way we use to play them.  Really looking forward to this one.

    One thing though is the cash shop.  I'm all for it, but be prepared to face an armageddon of whining and whinging as the game gets closer to launch.  It's popularity is going to attract the "P2W" doomsayers like flies to sh*t.  Get ready to bunker up.

    The interesting thing is that there really is no difference between a sub and a cash shop game because a sub is just a persistant cash shop that runs even if you are not in the game playing it.However there are differences in the way some companies run said cash shops.




    And on a side note most shooters have no "sub fee" anyhow,this is a big shooter on a mmo scale without the pve so why would you even want to pay a sub for it?

    I would have no problem paying a box price for the game itself but would not pay a sub for it.
