PlanetSide 2 is rolling out some classic lore

And then there was the time we shot them. And the time they shot us. And... that's it, really.

This might astonish you, but there is actually more to the lore behind PlanetSide 2 beyond “our faction is good, the other two factions are bad, and we shot them trying to acquire control over a territory.” A lot more, as it happens! Which is why the team has added a new “Lore” feed to the game’s news stream showing off some of the game’s extant stories, some of which are familiar and some of which may not have been seen before. The stories will receive minor edits along the way, but nothing significant.

More lore is an obvious good thing, but is it leading up to more? A tweet on the official account implies that this is a start rather than an ending point, meaning that perhaps we’re going to see new lore or other forward movement. There’s even the possibility of seeing some fan-written stories being featured. We’ll see what comes out of it, but the renewed focus on lore certainly gives lots of opportunity for fun speculation.

I remember that before Plantside 2 was released, they were realising some kind of comic series on the original Planetside website leading up to it.


They need new lore to explain why another Daybreak game is shuttering?

Sorry, I really enjoy Planetside 2, it’s just that the company seems to be in a slow, drawn out death spiral.

I would love to see big updates for this game but it seems unlikely. This kind of seems like a way to try and drive a little publicity without doing any dev work.
