(Not) The Planetside 2 Gamescom Trailer

The Gamescom* Planetside 2 trailer is below. There is SOMETHING familiar about it. It doesn’t show much of the new bases, or more than a couple of vehicles, sadly. Just a lot of pew-pew sidearm action. That said, there’s plenty to suggest that this is going to be very like the original, with the tower under siege, a torrent of gunfire and a flight of reavers to finish things off. There are a few glimpses of familiar weapons, too. Familiar indeed.

*Have you seen this trailer before? I don’t know where that might have been. (For genuine new stuff check out this thread.)

  8. Davee says:

    Why that’s- … the exact same trailer again. Still good though.

  9. Dhatz says:

    all the shooting and no hits, the standard failed scifi BS.

    • GenBanks says:

      That’s not really limited to scifi. It’s probably every game except Red Orchestra and Arma.

    U dun goofed, Jim.

  11. aircool says:

    Erm… I don’t remember seeing all of that before, just bits of it. Am I wrong?

  12. Wunce says:

    So… errr…. well this is awkward.
    What is planetside?
    In ten words or less please.

  13. Jinkeez says:

    I love Planetside, can’t wait to try out 2. This trailer is amusing to me though, because in almost every scene of Stationary Mans Shooting, they have this oddly casual posture, like they’re all, “Yeah, let’s get Indian food for lunch, let me just finish shooting this gun first.”

    EDIT: I’m in Japan, by the way, where we get shafted on everything. No Total War allowed here :(
