After announced PlanetSide 2 in July, SOE's persistent open world MMO shooter has become another high-anticipated game in 2011/2012. Recently, SOE's president John Smedley shared more details about the gameplay and beta schedule in the interview with Chinese media 17173.com.
The most unique part in PlanetSide 2 is the massive battlefield that can contain over 2,000 soldiers at the same time, says Smedley, but the two new features in the sequel to PlanetSide, skill and territory control system are also something that the developers really want to offer to gamers. Skills directly affect a character's ability of increasing weapon damage, modifying vehicles, and crafting. Depending on the level of the skills, players will cost some time to learn those skills, and it's similar to EVE's skill learning, according to Smedley. Of course, your character will continue to learn even he/she is offline.
Territory control is about taking control of resources which offer the necessary materials for creating weapons and upgrading equipment. Smedley tells that they are considering implementing PVE world events to the game in the future, say, 3 factions work together to defend alien invasion.
When asked about the business mode and beta schedule, Smedley reveals that the game will be free-to-play, but it may not be the microtransaction type as he mentions the model of buy to play and Diablo 3's auction house. Smedley also thinks that EA's The Old Republic will be the last popular MMO with subscription fee. At last, the beta plan. According to Smedley, PlanetSide 2 will start large-scale test in US at the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012.
