PlanetSide 2 Will See Thousands of Players Simultaneously Compete (VIDEO)
Members of PlanetSide 2‘s development team spoke about the sequel to the nearly decade-old MMOFPS in a video that revealed more footage of the game than we’ve ever seen. PlanetSide 2 promises to house the largest-scale combat ever seen in an online shooter, with thousands of players directly and simultaneously competing with one another.
The question is, from a technological standpoint, how are they going to handle these massive battles? Battlefield 3 sees a maximum of 64 vs. 64; PS2 wants to raise the bar by an entire order of magnitude.
The video was ripped by a YouTube user from the official website of Chinese co-developer The9, so no higher-resolution is available, sadly.
