Planetside 2

Sony Online Entertainment confirms that its free-to-play, PC-only first-person-shooter PlanetSide 2 will officially launch on November 20, 2012 in an update on the game's official website. The closed beta has been ongoing for some time now, and the results were apparently strong enough that SOE feels confident in launching the game during this crowded holiday season.

For those who aren't familiar with it, PlanetSide 2 pits three factions against one another on a *massive* open world map, one dotted with bases and installations of various sorts that can be captured, held, and lost. The transition from closed beta to public release will introduce a few new elements, notably livestream capabilities, additional gear and vehicles, and a handful of new continents to wage war in.

I've tooled around the beta a bit myself, and I can't help but appreciate the scale of this thing. PlanetSide 2 is HUGE. Assuming a healthy community forms around it, the game will easily stand as the most grand-scale multiplayer shooter out there.
