Planetside 2 is a massive multiplayer first-person shooter with an emphasis on large-scale battles developed by Daybreak Game Company.

Although considered as a continuation of the series, Planetside 2 is a re-imagining of the original game featuring the same world, factions and time period. The game revolves around territory control mechanics with large battles with up to 2000 players participating. Combat takes place on the continents of a fictional planet which are broken up into many territories. Control over these sectors grants bonuses to the faction in control. Teamwork and coordinated attacks are a necessity on the way to victory.

There are three factions present in the game: the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, and Vanu Sovereignty. Each faction has its own unique visual style and playstyle. For example, the Republic relies on conventional ballistic weaponry while railguns and gauss rifles are widespread in the Conglomerate.

Planetside 2 features a freemium business model similar to League of Legends. While the game can be played for free, there is an in-game shop where players can buy new weapons, vehicles, and cosmetics for either real money or in-game currency.

      PlanetSide 2 reviews and comments

      Translated by
      Microsoft from Deutsch
      If Lobbies in Call of Duty are too small and slaughter even in Battlefield 1 are too boring, Planetside is in The right place! In Planetside's huge Story, which hardly occurs in the Game, it is about the 3 different factions each having a different Reason to polish each other's fresco. In Terms of Playing, Planetside feels "Old School." Easy to Learn, Hard to Master is the Motto here, where you can still enjoy every Kill like in Red Orchestra or Unreal Tournament. There are no ridiculous Killstreaks or useless Features and Power-Ups that souse the Game. You're only as good as your own Equipment and Experience. Dozens, driving and Flying tools such as Jeeps, Quads, Tanks, Troop vehicles, fighter jets, Bombers and transport Aircraft as well as 6 different Classes and umpteen Weapons are available, All of which want to be lelicited and Equipped, Planetside is so very different from others Shooter. Somehow it wants to be First-person shooter and then again an MMO and then again a War Simulation. Sometimes it feels tactically like Counter Strike and sometimes ultra fast as the Onslaught Mode from Unreal Tournament. Planetside is in a Class of its own and it is precisely this class of its own that one gets to feel when you start Planetside for the first time and fly unwittingly with a Probe to a Hot Spot and Your own MiniMap is as full in the Fight for a Biolab or Techplant as your Barcode from de de de. In new Graphics Card and the only thing you see is hail Of bullets and Team members frantically calling: I need a Paramedic, I need ammunition, I need to be repaired and a huge Mess breaks out. Only to hold 1 to 4 Points depending on the Base and take the Base. Away from the giant Battles, there are more minor Guerrilla Battles for the singled Bases. Anyone who still can't imagine the abnormal size of Battles in Planetside has since said Planetside 2 holds the World Record for most Players in a First-person shooter on a server. Even if everything about Planetside is still so good, and even such smelling Is fun, Planetside has also so weaken its. Despite the Tutorial, Planetside is not exactly Beginners friendly and the old Graphics Engine eats Processor power like you Own popcorn in the Cinema. Minimum System requirement for Planetsides = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = CPU: Intel Core i5 with 2.5Ghz OR AMD Phenom II X4 RAM: At least 4GB GPU: At least GTX260 BETTER GTX460 or AMD Radeon 4850 OS: Windows 7/8/10 HDD: 20 GB of free Storage System requirement for Planetside for high Detail = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = CPU: Intel CPU with 3.5Ghz, AMD CPU with 4.0GHz RAM: 8 GB GPU: Nvidia GTX760 or AMD Radeon RX 460 OS: Windows 10 HDD: 20 GB free Memory Conclusion: = = = = Planetside 2 is an Insider tip Not only for Front Pigs and Lone fighters, because it makes more fun when you go into battle with several Friends or in Groups of 10 to 100 People. If you want to play something else but a similarly good one, like your daily Battlefield, Call of Duty or Counter Strike, you should definitely stop by here. Watching costs nothing, Yes is for sum anyway. 9/10
