Planetside 2 is a sequel to Sony’s relatively popular first-person-shooter massive-multiplayer-online-role-playing-game Planetside.
In the game three factions will battle for control of the planet Auraxis. As in the original, territory control and the battles to regain or conquer territory will make the bulk of the gameplay. You can do so on foot or in land or air vehicles. At the moment the game will be free to play.
This trailer for the game focuses on the design of the Vanu Sovereignty faction. The Vanu fight their battles with alien tech and have a sleeker appearance. Their weapons, armor and vehicles are designed more for agility and mobility. So, playing as them you won’t last long in a slug fest but you might not get hit a lot either due to the speed.
