If you haven’t already heard, we’re at war. Eternal war, truth be told, but of a friendly, (typically) only virtually fatal sort with the PC Gamer lot and also everyone else who’s ever played PlanetSide 2. You can enlist right here for a giant community play session that’s kicking off at 12:30 PM PT/7:30 PM GMT, but if you’d rather not risk life and level one limb, there’s another option. You can watch me, a person who has never played PlanetSide 2, attempt to be some kind of war correspondent. On the docket: witnessing spectacular catastrophe firsthand, stumbling around and dying a lot, and then probably interviewing key players on all sides after they’ve emerged from the carnage. I honestly have no idea if this will be any good, but let’s find out together, like a big, argumentative family on a Sunday picnic – only with more, you know, war.
Update: We’re done! What an insane, nearly overwhelming game. Absurdly strategic and fascinating, though. You can watch the whole thing below.
If you want to go straight to the post-war interview (which is really interesting), skip to 1:08:00 of the second video.
Here are YouTube versions in case Twitch dislikes you or you dislike Twitch or both of you pretend to dislike each other but are actually crushing hardcore and just don’t know how to admit your real feelings.
