New Planetside 2 screenshots

"PlanetSide 2 launched this week. It is a free-to-play FPS MMO with battles on an epic scale, not unlike CCP's Dust 514. PlanetSide 2 is a game that would work extremely well on consoles, so why isn't it available for Sony's PS3?

Well, the graphics."

Current generation graphics looks much better than this !

Dailynch1728d ago

Seriously? Really, cos these images (and the gameplay videos) are really impressive. Much better than current gen FPSs.

Walker1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

Look at Halo 4 ! Which one is better, seriously ?!

Fishy Fingers1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

Halo looks good, no denying that. But not this good and it's no where near the scale of Planetside 2.

jaosobno1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

I expect much better than Planetside 2 graphics on next gen. Even launch titles (that always look worse when compared to later titles) should look way better.

ChronoJoe1728d ago

What they miss is that the game scales.

Lower performance machines could run this no problem, just with lower graphics settings.

It would probably make more sense to wait for PS4 and then present this game in it's true glory on that platform though... in my opinion.

SilentNegotiator1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

Considering it's an MMO....uh, that's pretty darn good.

yodawins1728d ago

not to mention its f2p... pretty amazing graphics if you ask me.

Mounce1728d ago

The screenshots don't do this game justice. If you can play the game MAXED on your PC, only then will you understand the Scope, size, and Epicness of the world

Considering it's an FPS-MMO with approx 2,000 players per a continent, with several hundred square kilometers per a continent...

It's very DAMN good looking!

Just be glad that we have something. Kids these day don't appreciate many things, and this game is free.

Guys let's remember here. Planet side 2 pulls of these amazing graphics while allowing up to 2000 players playing simultaneously on a massive map with tons of vehicles, customized suits, and basically lots of assets.

f7897901728d ago

Well ok then. That's impressive.

I was about to say the graphics are nothing special.

geth1gh1727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

Yea, been playing this game for months. Even if it had launch ps2 and xbox graphics I doubt current gen consoles would be able to run the game playable with the amount of scale and players required.

Hell they can't even get past 24 players in bf3 so how would they be able to run a map the size of NYC with thousands of players?

Also it cost a total of ZERO dollars...

pr0digyZA1728d ago

There are much better shots around the internet, also this game has a massive massive world with 2000 characters and vehicles.

shackdaddy1728d ago

There's even better pics than those.

donman11728d ago


I fully agree with you. PS3/Xbox360 are capable of those visuals and Wii U can do that easily. Nothing next gen about those screen shots.

I agreed because you're right but i bubbled you down for calling people an idiot on an internet forum about video games. xD

Axecution1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

lol disagrees.

k nevermind he didn't call somebody an idiot on a forum about video games and that isn't a personal attack on somebody

Bolts1727d ago

This is a clown comment. I've been in a sprawling battle with over two hundred players. We're talking epic huge here, like over 40 tanks and planes and hundreds of infantry clashing all around me.

This game makes BF 3 looks like Call of Duty. And it's free.

StraightPath1728d ago

this game looks beautiful people who are saying this game looks nothing special are idiots. For the scale of the game and pulling those graphics is IMPRESSIVE and graphics which current gen or next gen probably wont be able to pull off.

ThanatosDMC1728d ago

This shows those who have played the game and those that cant.... hahhahah

Ducky1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

Here's a better gallery from the beta:

Planetside2 itself isn't a taxing game visually. It does demand a strong CPU though, due to the scale of the game.

When it comes to next-gen, I'd expect launch titles to have similar visuals at 1080p.

Shacojin1727d ago

Yea it doesnt tax the game visually... until you MAX the Settings and put it at the highest resolution.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

dude your talking out of your ass.
Don't compare current games to this 2000 players game.

Does halo have 2000 players, physx, bullet drop, 64 Square Kilometer(25 sq mile) maps?, day/night 24/7 non stop battles in a persistant world?

What current game are you comparing it to?

Oh yeah your waiting for a new console.

This shows the power of pc and also shows how sony can make a great mmo. Hence my pc/ps3 soon ps4 preference.

Now tell me about your $60 hallway shooters with less things to do again?

ZombieNinjaPanda1728d ago

Considering that Planetside 2 is an MMO, it's probably 100X the size of Halo 4, or some absurd number like that. It looks pretty damn nice for what it is.

ATi_Elite1728d ago

1. Those are Not Ultra Settings!

I have Planetside 2 and have been playing since the Beta.....those pictures are not on Ultra with all the bells and whistles on!

Also the video they supplied is total crap! check the video I have at night and see all the lighting effects!

sure PS2 is NO battlefield 3 on Ultra but PS2 looks better than that! so check the link out for a Nice comparison of PS2 on High vs. Ultra and see the real difference! 1:38 mark u get good side by side comparisons.

2. The stupid editor never mentioned that Planetside 2 has 2000 players per map which is a MAJOR reason why Planetside 2 is not on consoles!

I'm not bad mouthing the consoles but Planetside 2 is a PC Game designed to take advantage of the PC and as of right now I know no console that can have this level of graphics and 2000 players per map!

Surely Next Gen consoles will be more than capable as Planetside 2 is such an awesome game that should be enjoyed by all.

TooTall191727d ago

How are you getting ultra? High is currently the best setting available for me. It will look awesome in motion once they enable PhysX.

BitbyDeath1728d ago

Technically 360 and PS3 are last gen now lol

vortis1728d ago

Halo 4 has 2000 players on screen at once and looks like that?


360ICE1728d ago

If you only look at the pictures, I agree consoles would be able to do that. But behind the pictures are some serious, raw scale. Maybe PS3 could do it. Not 100% sure, but maybe.
