After the first experiment with Planetside had failed, Sony Online Entertainment wants to try again with a new and especially better version of the game. PlanetSide 2 is an MMO and first-person shooter that the two genres once and for always successful to merge.
Sony Online Entertainment has the first Planetside in 2003 his paw quite a few times on the same rock bottom. The biggest pitfall of the MMOFPS was that the technology and the players just were not ready. Planetside was not playing nice, it was too complicated for many people and even looked for that time not too good. It is Sony Online Entertainment forgiven, because it tried to be one of the few to have a new game genre to create. These excuses are no longer for Planetside 2, both the technique and the players are ready for the most massive online first person shooter ever.
