AND I’M NOT ONE OF THEM WAAAAAAAAAAH.
That’s all this post is, really – a public lamentation that I’m not part of the latest New Hotness, said New Hotness being fab-looking MMOFPS Planetside 2, which will finally open its doors to a selected few members of the public later today (about 7pm UK time, I believe). Hopefully I’ll be welcomed to the ranks of the eternal tri-war before too long – meantime, how have you lot go on? Clearly, we shall have to form some sort of enormous RPS faction once this thing is up and running for more of the public. No doubt the recent reveal that Planetside 2 is coming to Steam in addition to SOE’s Station platform will help make what’s already likely to be a huge playerbase all the huger. Sign up for the beta here, though it may be sometime before you’re given the king’s shilling.
I remember when Planetside was the best-kept secret in gaming, a remarkable conflict known only by a privileged few. It’s going to be very, very different this time around. That’s exciting in its own way.
Here’s the latest trailer, if you’ve not seen it. It has a very growly man, and it is called ‘Death Is No Excuse.’ That is not a reasonable employment policy, as far as I’m concerned.
