Plenty going on at E3 now and Sony Online Entertainment has released a trailer for Planetside 2.



Totalbiscuit is also covering it live at http://www.twitch.tv/totalbiscuit
Doesnt start til 8am AU and I'll link a recorded version when he is done.
There is also http://www.twitch.tv/soe

They are also giving out beta keys via facebook and they are going very fast.
http://www.facebook.com/PlanetSide2
If you do want or get one then.
You go to planetside2.com

Click on "Redeem" on the right side
Log in/create an SOE account
Copy-paste the beta key
Cross your fingers the code is still valid

If you are a veteran of PS1 you dont need one of those keys.

PS2 Forums are also up if you want to reserve nicks.
http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/

Vets make sure you login with your PS1 station details first!

Generally not used much but for beta feedback it will most likely be needed.

odd thing is when I log into PS2 with my old account it says already signed up for beta etc. But it says I have no account history.
So assuming the station account I am remembering is the wrong one and I won't get auto beta :(

Go here
https://auth.station.sony.com/login?ser ... &theme=soe
Then goes to Account Management page.
Head to Game Pass info.
You should see your Planetside info and then down the bottom it will mention Planetside 2
Make sure the email details for that account are up to date.

You can also try the PS2 theme but I get the same result.

I have not entered a beta key yet.

Gogita over at PSU compiled this Q&A from E3 today

Will there be prone?
It is still being considered. It was mentioned that while internally testing prone might work, it might have a negative impact when there are thousands of players. Therefore it is possible that it will be tested during beta.

Are there urban areas?
Yes, outposts are the areas with an urban feel in PS2, i.e. closely packed buildings with roads going through them.

What kind of defensive unlocks does the galaxy have besides additional armor?
-speed
-something vague about defense when deployed.

Tell more about the layout of bases
All types of bases have their core structure, but the surroundings differ from each other, even if it is the same type of base.

Could you tell us more about the mission system
main objective of the mission system is to point new players to where to go. It will be shown on the HUD and map so they know where to go. Player missions will be implemented later where players can customize their own missions.

Any max specific abilities?
Not currently. This might change during the beta where they decide which empire gets which certain abilities.

Will there be a generator in PS2? Or any other capture points?
Yes, they are considering second objective missions. (weird answer, but this is what was said)

Will there be an option to have alternating fire mode for dual wielding maxes?
There might be a cert to give you this ability

Will there be different kind of weather effects?
Some weather elements will not be able to be turned off, because they play an important role in PS2, on the contrary to PS1 where most effects could be turned off in the settings.

Is there joystick support
For sure. They have been testing joysticks internally and higby is apparently a big fan of joysticks

Can we swim?
We'll see.

How does the medic work?
They will have AOE heal where they drop a shield. Everyone in the shield will get healed.

Can you customise the UI?
Yes

2003, they had the 9yr anniversary the other day.
And people, like Evil Pig, are still playing it today.

They are pretty good at getting those old accounts back.
Makes me feel they actually have customer service reps.

Azure Twilight have been streaming PS1 ops @ http://www.twitch.tv/azuretwilight
Higby/Devs are "intervening" and the meteor showers on top of the gal drops are rofl.

They also have a dev running around cloaked that cant be spotted with dark light on.
Possible cloaking MAX unit as well.
Earthquakes.

The VS have been awarded Fan Faire which gives them swords!

AT went back to sanc to regroup and take 5min bio break, while doing that Devs did a Gal drop on top of them, 100 Gals...aka MPB in T2.

The GM, @BrewkoPS, was the one controlling events and adding the odd violent screen shake.
This was all in Planetside 1.

Its interesting watching the streams but the fights are nothing like the early days of Planetside.
25 MAX units crashing the back door did bring back memories.

Not even close.
I think the outfit in that fight had 70 at most and that is just about all of the population.
The only time I think its fun is if one of the other large active outfits jumps on to counter it.
They usually stream it as well so you can have both going and see the battle from each perspective.


Planetside 2... 2000 pop per cont.

latest info was from an E3 interview.

-Higby on Gamespot E3 interview


And some vague reference in a financial report stating October release.


I downloaded some of the Totalbiscuit youtube videos @ 1080p, they look sweet on the big screen tv.
