Planetside 2 Anticipation Thread

But I'm playing it on my MBP!

There has been quite a bit of PS2 talk in the MMO thread so I thought I'd start this one. Yes it might not show up until 2013, but here is a recent video of Planetside 2 demo'd game play. The first part is Reavor flying. About 12 min in, Vanguard Tanks although it's brief. This game is looking awesome! And it is Free to Play... If you know nothing about it but want to get a feel:

GDC 2012 First Game Play.

In the demo it looks like the moderator is jumping into and out of tanks by himself. In the original
Vanguards are two player, one to drive, one to operate the big gun. Hmm are tanks now single occupant?

The Planetside 2 Beta has started! That's all I can say.

Good luck to you! I'm not sure what server my outfit (666 Devil Dogs) will be on, but they are taking applications. For someone based in Europe I do realize that guild location can be important from a time standpoint. My understanding is that the 666 is mostly U.S. based, but has members from around the globe.

Did you play the original?

I played for about a year, I didn't have a great PC or net connection so kinda gave up after a while. I do remember doing plenty of galaxy drops, they were always fun

I believe so but info is rather limited at this point. See this PS2 Wiki.

Me too. Got accepted to the beta, have not yet downloaded client, but my lips are sealed in any case.
