Just wanted to share this great game, been playing it since the start of Beta and it'll be released on the 20th of this month! It's a futuristic style free to play MMOFPS, 2000 players in a persistent battle fighting for control over huge continents up to 64 square kilometres.

Here's their site: www.planetside2.com
Plus it'll be on Steam when it's released: http://store.steampowered.com/app/218230/

A couple of screenshots I've taken below! Those black dots going up the road on the second one are all players in tanks and other vehicles.






There's currently 3 of these continents on a server (Each of which can hold 2000 players) 3 empires fight for control over the continents and receive resources and bonuses for capturing more territory.

I've tried my best to find some videos which show off the sheer scale of some of the battles, there's no other game quite like it and I often find myself standing in awe of the huge battle going on around me!

Here's a great video to show off some of the basics of the game:

As a free to play game there's of course a cash shop, all weapons can be earned through gameplay though, and none are made to be necessarily more powerful than the others. The only items which you're required to pay for if you want them are cosmetics such as skins and other items to customise the looks of your character and vehicles.

I dropped it the first 30 minutes when I go into close-beta. I find it boring, same goes for COD,BF3 and the "so call" modern games. I feel like retiring from gaming. It's been 10years of gaming for me. I've seen too much. I need to get a life....

I started playing it again after dropping it during beta. I didn't like how there was hardly any directions and assistance for new players. Now that I have picked it up again and figured more out it is much more fun. I will say though that there are many many stupid people in that game who makes an engineers life much harder than it has to be. v.v

"Jazz" - VS Waterson.

Living Legends is my outfit. We're awesome. Our signature activity is the AA Party Bus, usually well behind enemy lines. Works best when sauced.

I also play VS on Waterson, funny that someone else on here does, but I play with Xen of Onslaught. www.xoohq.com I have played games with them starting with pirates of the Burning Sea and Warhammer online in 2008 and haven't looked back.
