PlanetSide 2 Details: Air Vehicles, Time-Based Unlocks, New Classes, And More!

Planetside 2 is taking on an enormous task of creating an open combat massively-multiplayer first-person shooter, and judging by what we've seen so far, their efforts are proving rather successful. Planetside 2 takes place in a world where huge battles of up to 1,000 people can potentially take place whenever you meet other players, and the outcomes of those battles will have tremendous effects on the entire game world. Here's a snippet from our latest preview:

"It was only when the sun went away that I was able to truly realize this as the onslaught of glowing rockets flew across the screen toward the enemy battalion quickly closing in. Despite this battle only involving thirty players--as opposed to the theoretical thousands that SOE claims will be able to participate at once--it felt as though the player’s actions really mattered in the overall scheme of things. Whether they were involved in ground combat or were circling the skies above in gunships taking out enemy tanks, their actions had great impact on the situation at hand."
