Apparently on Twitter, Smedley has mentioned something regarding a 4th faction PvE type deal. Not quite sure yet what that means. . .

    I didn't know there were normal FPS with over 150 players and the freedom and options of Planetside, please enlighten me.

    Planetside 2 is rumoured to have 2000 (!!!) players on one map even.

    It's still an fps though not an rpg. I play mmorpg's these days because of early rpg games. It's a mmofps.

    Well even a big FPS game is still... a FPS game.

    If you play MMORPG's for progression, socialization, crafting, or even dungeon raiding you'll find none of that in P2, which is the reason I largely ignore the title. 

    Just not my style of game.

    But whatever floats your boat image

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    good thing he did post it. I had lost all intrest when I heard it was f2p.

     

    Looks pretty wild. As a free to play option too, hmmm. F2p in fthis sense for this game. might be pretty darn cool :) 

     

    Look out CoD.

    yea, because some people wont understand the meaning of a beta.

    Wow had to post again. That looked awesome.

     

    I had been saying that I would purchase gw2 6 months down the line to take the place of my change of pace game, SC2. But holly shit I think I'll end up putting this along side TSW.

    Oh my.

     

    Good thing Higby streamed it himself.

    F2P - Cosmetic/convenience only. Count me in!

    This is the only game I have any interest in multiplayer wise for the future. I think it's going to be hard to top, but I guess we'll see. I just hope the beta testers are actually testing, seeing as it isn't just a marketing gimmick and more along the lines of how Guild Wars 2 went about their business.

    This looks to be the game a lot of Battlefield 2 fans have been waiting for. Let's hope SOE doesn't screw it up.

    I'm not interested in MMOFPS either.  I'm not into MOST forms of PvP.  I did really like the Painkiller FPS series at one time in my life and Tribes, but....generally the genre is just not for me whether it's sp FPS or MMOFPS.  Kinda blech to me.  Enjoy.....to all the people looking forward to this game though.  I think that everyone should be able to find an MMO that they enjoy, so having all different kinds of them.....is great.

    PvE, means: Player vs Everyone. Hope I helped.

    Different NDA than what is usually used?

     

    Since people who type "Us in beta" is usually allready breaking the NDA when they say that :)

    It looks extremely entertaining, but like DayZ, I'm one of those folks who like watching others play it either at a lan party or through a stream. Personally find it much more enjoyable watching those who play those games than I do actually playing them. Kinda like Resident Evil, back in the day, kick back with a 12-pack and laugh at my friends scream at the tv.

    The trailer was awesome, RipperX's vids were too, I'm sure the game is gonna kill when it releases.
