PlanetSide 2 is the first sequel to the award winning mmopfs PlanetSide published by Sony Online Entertainment. Lore wise, the story continues the ongoing war between the three empires. The conservative Teran Republic, the rebellious faction calling themselves the New Conglomerate and the ultra tech Vanu Sovereignty are the three opposing playable factions. Just like the original game, PlanetSide 2 is all about capturing and holding enemy bases and controlling valuable resource points.
The skill tree is the backbone of the character development system in PlanetSide 2. The skill tree has different branches for combat, vehicles and weapons. Each branch has its own skill tree. With such a complex skill tree any player can create a unique build. As the player levels up more roles and the ability to swap between them will become available. There are six distinct roles: Light Assault, Heavy Assault, Infiltrator, Medic, Engineer and MAX (Mechanized Assault Exo Suit). Every PlanetSide 2 class can have 2 specializations. Medic and Engineer classes have support roles which makes them a valuable asset to any raid team. What makes PlanetSide2 stand out from other mmofps games is the fact that a player can acquire all 6 roles and cycle through them depending on personal choice or team needs. Characters advance through Battle Ranks just like in the first PlanetSide but the Command Rank has been removed and replaced with command skills. Skills are called certs in PlanetSide 2 and they must be trained in order to gain access to new weapons, improve efficiency or unlock new certs. Certs will train even when the player is offline but at a slower pace. PlanetSide 2 has more than 20 starting weapons each with a variety of customizing options. One of the most thrilling features of the original PlanetSide free mmo was the ability to control a vehicle. Veteran players will be happy to find out that this feature has been kept and improved. There are new vehicles (some faction specific) and the vehicle skill tree has new abilities as well. The outfit (clan) system has seen a few additions as well. PlantSide 2 outfits have their own skill tree which provides bonuses for their members.
Although PlanetSide 2 is mainly a fps mmo killing enemy players, it's not all there is to it. Battlegrounds in PlanetSide 2 have been designed with strategy and coordination in mind. A battle can last for days or even weeks and a night/day cycle has been added that will influence weapon and strategy choice. The explorable and contestable territory of Auraxis (the planet where the action takes place) has been expanded with new zones and continents adding even more room for air and land battles. By supporting thousands of combatants, PlanetSide 2 battles will have a faster pace and be more exciting.
