PlanetSide Arena delayed until March

Bzzz. Bzzz. Bzzz. That’s the sound of your alarm, it’s Delay o’clock. PlanetSide Arena, the battle royale made from the bones and skin of quite-large multiplayer shooter PlanetSide 2, has been delayed. It was supposed to zip straight to a full release next Tuesday, January 29. But developers Daybreak send word that it’s been knocked back a couple of months. To needlessly keep up the…

PlanetSide Arena is another battle royale from Daybreak

The sci-fi generals of PlanetSide 2’s never-ending conflict will be waging a new kind of war early next year. PlanetSide Arena is a battle royale shoot-the-lads that will launch as a full game on January 29, developers Daybreak are telling everyone today. It’s going to have a shrinking battleground, reworked guns, spacebucks, jetpacks, orbital strikes and big group matches that see 250 boots-on-the-ground shooting at…

PlanetSide 2 introducing side-switching mercenaries

The endless open-world war of PlanetSide 2 will add a fourth faction who switch sides, mercenaries who will fight for whichever proper faction has the fewest active players on the battlefield. The robotic Nanite Systems Operatives sound a neat idea, keeping the war lively while also reducing faction queue times and giving lone wolf players an option to always play on their back foot and…

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

PlanetSide 2’s Critical Mass update overhauls capturing continents

It's been a while since I've dusted off PlanetSide 2 [official site], admittedly. When I last played Daybreak's mega-scale FPS for any length of time they had only just recently introduced base-building to the game, with the resoruce-carrying ANT units returning from the original PlanetSide. With the release of the massive Critical Mass update this week (the first major overhaul of 2017), they've introduced sweeping…

In Foxhole’s war the truck drivers are the real heroes

For the third day in a row, our outpost was under attack. Some enterprising yanks had discovered they could take opportunistic raiding parties through an undefended snowy field and get within grenade-throwing distance of our forward operating base – a walled-in barracks full of tiny toy soldiers all sitting around grunting that they didn’t have enough rifles, ammo, or best friends to clutch to their…

Goin’ Up! PlanetSide 2 Adds Base-Building

Construction arrived in PlanetSide 2 [official site] this week, letting players build their own little bases. If you've been hoping to build a quiet little get-away spot, put up a shed, set out a few lawn chairs, fire up the barbie... yeah, that won't happen. Especially given the sort of people pootling around, tooled up and looking for trouble. No, this is warconstruction, letting players…

The RPG Scrollbars: EverQuest Next Killed The MMORPG

Light a candle for the genre, it's basically done. Oh, it'll keep ticking along, of course. This month we've seen Black Desert Online, there's others on the way, and there'll always be some audience for both the mostly Korean-born clickers and the occasional new idea. Personally I'm hoping for City of Titans to scratch that superhero itch that Champions Online sure as heck can't, and…

Planetfall: Layoffs At Everquest/H1Z1/Planetside Dev

A name change to the awkward-sounding'Daybreak Game Company' isn't the only consequence Sony's recent shock sale of its MMOy division SOE to management firm Columbus Nova. Barely more than a week after the acquisition, Daybreak is making lay-offs, reportedly including the long-time lead and public face of the Everquest games. "The operation of current games" won't be affected apparently, so while this is sad news…
