Planetside 2 is the highly-anticipated sequel to, Planetside, also an open-world MMOFPS by Sony Online Entertainment. Players side with one of three factions and battle for control of the continents of Auraxis.
Planetside 2 delivers truly epic, massive combat on a scale never before seen in stunning, breathtaking detail.
Don’t fight alongside dozens of players, but instead walk on to battlefields with hundreds of players fighting on the ground and the sky above. Enjoy one of the few true MMOFPS titles, with no instance-based matches, no lobbying – just one big, open, persistent world.
Battles take place not between dozens of troops, but thousands; with air and ground vehicles slugging it out alongside squads of troops. Whether in open fields, tightly packed urban centers or enormous structures, planning, teamwork and communication are essential.
PlanetSide 2 features incredible continent maps with dozens of square kilometers of seamless gameplay space; every inch of which is hand-crafted, contestable space. With the territorial control meta-game, landmass has intrinsic value.
In PlanetSide 2 battles can last for days or even weeks, and finally taking control of the base means it’s yours until someone can take it back. Working strategically as a team to capture key tactical positions such as power plants and ammo depots have long-lasting effects that can shift the tide of battle. Victory requires strategic teamwork and a quick trigger finger to survive the massive battles.
