PlanetSide 2

Release Date:  November 20, 2012
Publisher:  Sony
Developer:  Sony
Genre:  Shooter

PlanetSide 2 is a team-centric MMOFPS that offers a slew of features such as massive combat among thousands of troops both in air and on land. It was officially announced on July 8, 2011 and released in November 20, 2012.

Players will have three factions to choose from, including Terran Republic (legal government), Vanu Sovereignty (Rebels), and New Conglomerate (new force). From the FAQs of PlanetSide 2, we learned that players could engage in the vehicle-based battles, combining and involving troops of air and land. To some extent, the game is a “complex” of both World of Tanks and World of Planes.

Players are able to lead land troops to fire either in the heavily guarded downtown cities, or around large steel-structure buildings. It should be noted that such battle requires a well-structured set of tactics and knowing teamwork in order to win the battler.

Like most of free to play MMOFPS, PlanetSide 2 also lets players to advance through learning skills and unlocking new roles that can be switched in battle according to team strategy. Although Sony did not disclose the business model, we were assuming PlanetSide 2 is more likely to go free to play because of its current progression system, and skill tree mechanism.
