    Default Planetside 2 closed beta is up! (NDA still in effect!)

    source: https://twitter.com/j_smedley/status/228237905305403392
    edit: things didnt go well i guess, beta got pushed to friday or monday next week.

    also a new trailer was released




    i hope soooo its gonna be a 24/7 beta, i could really use a new game right now lol.
    im really hyped up for this, how about you guys?

    by the way, what faction are you guys gonna join? maybe we should hook up :P
    i still cant decide between The Terran Republic or The New Congl****ate. ive always been a TR myself but i might switch to NC this time.


    edit: for those who never even heard of this game, heres a huge gameplay video if you like:

    i know right, we been waiting for so long and suddenly 'next week beta' xD lets just hope its not a 12/24 hour stress test lol, but i think not. since u need allot of time to get things going in this game. bases need to be captured, people need to learn driving tanks and airplanes and such and get used to the gameplay :P

    btw siggy is from sword art online, a new anime i was pleasantly surprised with its sorta like .hack//sign but already like it better

    What faction? Is that a trick question or something? Terran Republic, for life. Death to the traitor factions!

    OH MY GOD, I knew the character was from Sword Art Online, but I couldn't remember that scene. That was when they defeated the first level's boss! Definitely a great anime!

    Still unsure of which faction I should go after wipe~
    All I can say is, you might need a good rig to really enjoy this game.
    And if you have a good rig already, this game kicks so much ***. So much. Just so much. *tears*

    Personally I am a FPS > RPG > GS > RTS > MoBA kinda guy.
    Though I like GW2, I might prefer PS2, we'll see how they handle server loads/stress tests.

    PS2 has been in testing for awhile now. Apparently this is so exclusive that not even vets took priority.

    Well they picked people based on specs for the tech tests, my friend that thought planetside 1 was crap(he didn't play it till years later when the population went to shit) and he got in the second to last wave, he's got a better pc then me, I7 ivy and a nvidia 680 i think it was, to my I5-2500k and amd 6950. Then i got in on the last wave.

    Anyway, i'm going Vanu like always.

    I am playing VS and I can't say anything else too specific due to the NDA, but it plays a lot like BF3.

    Going from what's listed on Planetside universe on the forums. It's Current Active PS subscribers> then previous subscribers>then keys gotten from pcgamer and twitter handouts from devs> then everyone else.

    Well i watched my dad play the Planetside 1 beta long long time ago that game was awesome, it soon came around were the game went f2p up to a certain lvl for a long time. So i played the first one for a good year or so on and off i had a lot of fun arse times.

    the two factions i usually go are Terran Republic or Vanu Sovereignty i was never fond of the New Congl****ate. im prolly going to start off as VS tho
