Here’s a fun surprise: Not only is PlanetSide 2 dropping an update today, but it released a brand-new trailer. Yes, a Daybreak game from 2012 got a new trailer. Here for it!

The update, dubbed Colossus, will patch in this morning; it includes the titular Colossus heavy tank, new guild logs, craftable facility modules for the war asset system, fixes for the Bastion fleet carrier, new infantry weapons, and a whole pile of other tweaks.

“The Colossus Heavy Tank, a massive, 5-seated combat platform, has been deployed to the battlefields of Auraxis. Capable of transforming into a powerful anti-Bastion Skylance Battery, a deployed Colossus emits a hardened shield bubble that can protect allies nearby. Advanced Nanite Transports (or ANTs) can also assist the Colossus by restocking its deployed shield with the Cortium that powers it.”

Servers are expected back up around 11 a.m. EDT today if all goes well. The trailer itself was released last night on popular PlanetSide 2 fansite Gamespot (:D), previewing the 5-person battle tank itself.

Yay… a really cool looking super tank that you personally will never get to use, as only outfit leaders can use them.

Literally have no idea what’s going on half the time in that video due to the chaos, seems perfect for PS2. The only thing missing are stealthed infiltrators running people over and excessive teamkills and it’d be *chefs kiss*

Neato though, didn’t know it was dropping already. Guess I’ll see how the new megatanks are this week.

TK’s are the plague for me in this game. There’s nothing more stupid in a FPS than to block you from actively fighting. Who thought of that should be fired.

I get why they exist and why they’d eventually lock you out of playing if you TK too much…it’s just super fun when you’re sitting there in your max, planted in a single position mowing away directly in front of you at enemies and your “teammate” literally RUNS THROUGH YOU and gets killed because they apparently couldn’t hear your dual miniguns going BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR for the past 30+ seconds.

What would be interesting would be to see penalties for people who are TK’d often in addition to those killing. Like, if people trolling by intentionally running into their own teams fire actually got a slap on the write for it to discourage that behavior and encourage more situation awareness.

It’s not pay to win.. at all….

The starting weapons are the best in many cases and there is literally nothing outside of cosmetics which you can’t unlock with in-game currency which, might I add, is super easy to get.

It’s not exactly P2W. The starter weapons are good, but you’re kinda locked into them if you want to optimize.

The biggest issue with this game is that there’s a optimal way of building your character and you can mess that up.

I played it for years, it’s not P2W. You can buy guns, but that doesn’t give you any advantage really.
I only stopped playing last year when they shut down my Briggs server, I tried switching but the lag was too high so I just quit, can’t play an FPS at over 100 ping just not doing it.
