PlanetSide 2 Announced -- Return Of The MMO FPS

PlanetSide 2 has been announced by Sony Online Entertainment. It will be a reimagining of the MMO FPS PlanetSide, released in 2003. PlanetSide 2 will continue to use the features from PlanetSide including ground and air battles. According to the press release, new to the game will be "features that modern gamers have come to expect out of the FPS and MMO genres." They didn't actually list these features so I'm forced to assume they mean it will connect to Facebook!

Thousands of gamers can play together in grand scale matches, some lasting for "for days or weeks." PlanetSide 2 will feature ground, air, and seaborne combat. An extensive skill tree, a wide variety of vehicles, and artillery customization will be available to gamers who want to create the perfect fighter. Three empires, The Terran Republic, The New Conglomerate, The Vanu Sovereignty, a class system and and unlockalbes will keep gamers playing PlanetSide 2 forever.
 
No, really. It kind of sounds like you never stop. Perfect MMO!
 
Fans of the original PlanetSide loved the game but often felt limited by the technology available. SOE president, John Smedley, felt the same way. “For years we’ve talked about creating another PlanetSide game, and we’re thrilled that technology has caught up with our vision."
 
PlanetSide 2 will be released for the PC via digital distribution and retail sometime in the sci-fi future.
