The Forge Light engine is impressive. What I love the most aside from the engine is the UI and art direction. I knew about the first Planetside and I was close to buying it. I decided to wait until I had a gaming PC and when that time came, I was busy playing other games.

For those that are wondering, Planetside 2 is going to be free-to-play.

It does look amazing. It looks like BF3 on steroids, as far as the game play goes. I have my concerns about performance when there are hundreds of people in an area fighting, though. But damn, it looks like great fun.

Ha, I was just coming in here to post that video Singh! :)

PS2 looks absolutely INCREDIBLE. Plus, TB blowing up John Smedly was awesome.

If they implement BFR, I will go there and kick their ass.

Great videos. I seemed to have missed out on those while keeping myself occupied with Dota 2 and Diablo 3.

Awesome, I played the hell out of the original planetside and look forward to the remake.

The sixty-cent question, Anaron - will this follow the traditional model of MMOs (monthly or annual fees), the Guild Wars model (pay just once) or the Free to Play - Your Way model (SOE's existing MMOs, such as EverQuest II and DCUO - the latter of which I actually enjoy the heck out of)?

If it follows the latter, that's as firm a signal that F2P is going exactly nowhere but up as the current DCUO and staged launches of Warface are proving.

DCUO *alone* is proving that - even though it's based on a seemingly-tired UE3 gaming engine, it's as far from other UE3-engined games as it gets.

Sony has stated the game will be F2P. And it won't be the Guild Wars style F2P either.

If you have a Planetside 1 account from "the days of old", you'll get into the beta automatically by the way - like I have mine from 2003 :p
