Aside from the big GDC demo
earlier this month, mass information dumps regarding PlanetSide 2
have been few and far between. Thankfully, creative director Matt Higby
took to Reddit yesterday for an AMA (ask me anything) session
that brought a few interesting nuggets to light.
If you're one of the game's hardcore faithful, the talk was more confirmation than revelation, but for casual or newly interested fans, there's a lot of stuff to digest. Among the more interesting bits was the fact that PS2
will use PunkBuster and the fact that all of the game's classes and vehicles will be available from the get-go.
Higby also touched on resource costs for vehicles
as well as the fact that the devs want "to create the game first and then build the business model that best services the game, rather than trying to conform the game to some particular business or membership model."
If Reddit's sprawling threads and needle-in-a-haystack nested replies aren't your cup of tea, PlanetSide Universe
has collected most of the relevant info on its own discussion boards.
