PlanetSide 2: Lightning Tank Detailed

SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,126

The PlanetSide 2 page has been updated with new information about the Lightning Tank. This light weight tank is a first line of defense for players with its one-man crew and fast maneuverability and is available to all factions.


  • Capable of firing up to six rounds in under three seconds, allowing the driver to quickly adjust their aim after their first shot

  • Designed to have a modular turret that can be completely swapped out for other turrets types

  • Its "Skyguard" turret is the most effective ground-to-air weapon on the battlefield, as it's fitted with 40mm cannons with an elevation range of 80 degrees

  • Fastest ground vehicle, besides the quad, making it difficult to out run it

Find out more on the Planetside 2 site.

    I wish the web site kept up with the game info releases(like the one above).Annoying to go to the web site and see 2 week old information being the most recient.

    You know you really can't ALWAYS go by the pictures and videos you see on the webz. You really have to feel the engine in your hands..

    Also an engine is not all about the graphics man.. It's about how the engine performs and what type of visuals and mechanics they can do..

    *le-sigh*

    PM before you report at least or you could just block.

    well what devs are realising is the fact that if they make things TO realistic and/or graphic req. heavy.They will leave a lot of player base out of the picture,not every PC gamer has the $$ to drop into a machine every time a new game comes out.

    This is important and one of the huge problems Planetside 1 had.

     

    At the time, it required a pretty beefy computer to run, as well as a fast internet connection. Broadband was not that prevalent at the time and dial-up just didn't cut it.  This (combined with other factors) turned a lot of people away from the game.

     

    A game that is dependant on massive scale warfare needs to be able to reach as many people as possible.

     

    Beyond that, I think the graphics of PS2 look pretty damn good. If they can keep the requirements low, I would say they hit a sweet spot with ForgeLight.
