Yay for Sunshine making me Bossmonkey!
Hey guys, only just noticed this for some reason: http://www.planetside2.com/news/pcgamercover
You can get a priority access Beta code with the Febuary 28th issue of PCGamer. It does say the following in the article though 'along with Fan Faire 2011 registered attendees, and original PlanetSide 1 players will have priority access', so you may not need it if you played Planetside 1. Curious if it will still increase your chances, but would imagine it's unlikely.
45 minutes of gameplay from GDC.
I'm so excited for this game!
Looks like Battlefield 3 and Halo had a child.....which then turned into an MMO.
Me gusta, although I'm not a huge fan of Sci-Fi shooters.
I can hear my Prowler calling to me from within the Alpha, must.. destroy.. all.. Vanguards.
NC FOR LIFE
Until you've played in those pointless 3 way battles on cyssorside where nobody won but 400 or so people were kicking the shit out of each other you won't be able to fathom how deeply excited I am for this. So many nights on a crappy computer learning to snipe, learning to fly, leading 12+ vanniess off the side of a cliff into the water (on accident!) lemming style, Hunting to half an hour for that one prick cloaker and bitching and moaning about the latest lasher changes. If this game lives up to expectations WoW, GW2, SWTOR and EVE can all kiss my sub goodbye as I play this for hours on end.
If you are not excited for this game or have never heard of it, GET EXCITED. IT'S COMING, WE ARE WAITING AND WE ARE READY.

Played the original until just before core combat (Galaxy/Reaver/Infiltrator mostly). Amazing game. I added a station sub again to try for beta but seems it won't happen (oh well). On release they will have my monies gladly.
As a word of warning: If they go by previous model expect to need a decently ninja system to run it. I had to double my ram and throw a bigger card in my rig last time to run this and my system was no slouch.

New 23 minute gameplay video from Totalbiscuit, not much action but still a good watch.
One thing that dissapointed me was finding out they've changed the vehicle/tank setup from Planetside to be more like modern FPS's where the driver controls the main gun, I much prefered the old system where the driver and gunner(s) were seperate. Makes me wonder what the setup will be for the Prowler, I loved having a regular 3 man team for mine but can see it being standardised to 'one driver, one secondary gunner' for all 3 tanks . Also with them adding a secondary gun to the Mag and Vanguard it takes away from the Prowlers uniqueness of having more guns, just a Vanguard in a different skin.

ive never played the first planetside, but these war type games as very intriguing to me. i use to play WWIIOnline,
Man, I need to update the main page again, but actually Nirawen, they have said they will be offering a certification for a designated driver so as you said; the driver will thus be only driving and you'll have the main cannon gunner and secondary gunner. Not to worry about the prowler either; which is my favorite tank. It is currently the fastest tank in the game with the fastest firing weapons; IE: the 2 main cannons as well as the fastest shooting secondaries. As opposed to the New Conglomerate Vanguard which hits the hardest, but is very slow and the Vanu Sovereignty's Magrider which is very maneuverable and able to go over obstacles such as water. So to break it down, the faction tanks now are separated by different play-styles. Terran: Fast and Rapid Firing; New Conglomerate: Hard hitting and Durable; Vanu Sovereignty: Extremely Agile and Use of Alien Tech. Here is a size comparison of all three MBT's and the smaller lightning battle tank as well. As you can see, our Terran Prowler on the far right has the lowest profile and smallest target; if you're planning on playing the fastest forces in the game the Terran Republic is for you.

Flying looks awesome with the new cockpits, as well as the third person view . I'm incredibly excited for this game, can't wait.
I've been crossing my fingers and toes saying over and over to the gaming gods, "please don't screw it up." Please SOE, don't screw it up.
