PlanetSide 2: Ride to Battle in Style


Did you always feel underdressed on your Flash quadbike?

When laying siege to the miscreants on Auraxis -- TR for the win -- did you want to be able to move quickly over the terrain but with a bit more firepower and a lot more bling?

With the advent of Update 08, the new strike vehicle, the Harasser, looks to be the answer to your problems.

Planetside 2: On Reflection

It's a shooter box, I'd argued dismissively. A scaled up version of Team Fortress 2, without the hats and grim humor. It won't have any lasting appeal, I’d persuaded myself, when there are so many other established multiplayer shooters. There's nothing new here at all.

I was wrong. Planetside 2 is possibly the natural evolution of the modern shooter. By swapping small maps that support 8 players a side and replacing them with giant landscapes that contain thousands, it reflects the ebb and flow of war in swirling, chaotic glory. It is by no means perfect, but it is incredible to experience.
