It’s been 9 years since the original Planetside debuted and Sony Online Entertainment has some brand new comparison screens for the original and the upcoming Planetside 2. Not only that but, we have info on the MAX suit for Planetside 2 that has been revealed!
On May 20, 2003, Sony Online Entertainment launched the most ambitious online game in history, PlanetSide — a game that would set the bar for massively multiplayer online first-person shooters (MMOFPS) and revolutionize the gaming industry.
This week, SOE honors the veterans that bravely fought on Auraxis for nine years, and celebrate those that are ready to enlist for the upcoming war in PlanetSide 2, the re-envisioned MMOFPS that still retains all that made PlanetSide the unbelievable experience it was.
Here are some comparison shots of Planetside and Planetside 2:
Today Sony Online Entertainment also unveiled the most heavy duty class for PlanetSide 2, The Mechanized Assault Exo-Suit (MAX). The MAX suit serves as a mobile weapons platform, capable of unleashing a serious beating.
The MAX suit has customizable modular weapon systems, allowing configurations specialized in taking out specific threats, or more well-rounded variations that are able to handle multiple types of enemy. In addition, each empire’s design for the MAX suit possesses special abilities unique to their faction. Wrap all that in a layer of heavy armor plating, and the MAX is a force to be reckoned with on any field of battle.
