PlanetSide 2 – Weapon in time lapse trailer

It’s been a couple months since we’ve heard anything about Planetside 2 the long awaited sequel to the 2003 original Planetside. 

The new game will have three factions battling it out for control of the planet Auraxis. Like the original, the bulk of the gameplay will be made up of territory control and the battles to take or regain conquered territory.

This video features a concept artist for the game designing a giant gun that might appear in game. He starts from the base sketches and goes all the way up to skinning the gun. It’s interesting from an artistic perspective but it doesn’t really illuminate anyhing about the game itself.

At the moment Planetside 2 doesn’t have a release date beyond 2012 but it will be only on PC.
