Sony Online Entertainments Planet Side 2
« on: December 09, 2012, 10:15:08 AM »
A fair few of the BF Div guys got on this games bandwagon during its closed BETA development about 6-8 months ago.

Having played the great 1942 and the BF2 PR mods we where all used to large scale maps, well we thought we where.........

http://mmohuts.com/news/planetside-2-e3-hands-on-preview-mmohut   for some action screen shots.

The game is a F2P MMOFPS title that spans 3 continents on the planet of Auraxis but don't fall into the assumption due to it being PS2 that its a sequel to the original PlanetSide, a game which in its oneself needs a separate thread lol.

Sooo backk on track......

http://wiki.planetside-universe.com/ps/Lore

Short Version:

Earth in the future is at war for 19 years  when a "wormhole" reappears; there have been 1 or 2 recorded events like this;  and suspect alien transmission/readings are gathered from it. After this occurrence Pluto blows up (go figure)...

So after this everyone says lets get together and feel alright lol basically Alien invasion theory pulls everyone together. Countries merge and from this we get the Terran Republic. A gathering of representatives from the former countries and territories acting as a council that votes in a presidential council for government.

Hand in hand with the Terran Republic worked the New Conglomerate, a collection of civilian based businessman etc etc that assisted the TR in its scientific research of the Wormholes.

This partnership also spawns a faction of tech based weenies who work in the shadows believing that they should embrace the aliens technology etc etc.(We will get to these guys)

Cut to next wormhole TR and NC send a fleet of 75,000 souls through it it collapses and kills 35,000 and strand 40,000 on the other side.

On the other side shit starts to get hectic between the NC and TR (and the shadowy other dudes) as supplies run out BUT as the script goes they find a habitable planet with heaps of resources and ALIEN technology.

The TR guys of course run the joint for a while, studying stuff and finding "re-birthing" technology. Basics are DNA stored you die you get reborn.

TR try to hide this stuff from the NC and ..........the Vanu Sovereignty,Yes the shadowy dudes have taken upon themselves the mantle of the Vanu (name of the Aliens they have been studying), dont like this and so war starts.

PHEW TLDR lol.

It is still good too lots of updates means tat they are putting some time and effort into the game. Usually spend most of Sat night playing this with Kaffa Spook NV Zeke, Muzza and whoever else joins.
