    Now calm down, you're going to hyperventilate. Thats right, breathe into the brown paper bag. The scuttlebut is that Planetside 2 may become a reality. But its along way off yet, the game if true is probably only in the conception stages. Heck, they're still out to dinner and haven't come back to spend the night yet.

    Interesting. Never played the first one but I really like the idea of an MMOFPS

    Hi All,

    I had the good fortune to play "Planetside" with TOG a couple of years ago for about 3 months or so. This was the only game where i had a chance to play alongside Father / Steefan.

    "Go The Gecko!" Was Our Slogan for the division.

    I do notice that SOE is doing another MMOFPS with "The Agency". In a spy action genre of game play for this upcoming Mmo title. So a Planetside 2 has my interest picqued, i wonder if it will include PvE content and instances. (much like Huxley & Global Agenda formula of MmoFps)

    There's a thread in the MMO Forum about the agency, but things have been pretty quiet for a while now from them. There's also Global Agenda which looks really promising. Then there's All Points Bulletin and Crimecraft which are also MMO FPS' although I believe most of these are different to what I understand that Planetside was like. There's links to'em all in the sticky in the mmo forum. ;)

    Nothing is like PlanetSide. From what I've read about "The Agency" and "Global Agenda" they won't be like it either.

    The primary thing in PlanetSide is that a large group of people could set their own nightly event agenda. They weren't forced into a game model. If you wanted to have your crew to be heavy armor for the entire night there was no limit to the amount of time, material or number of tanks you could pull. Every night was fresh provided there is enough population. PlanetSide gets rolling with about 1000 people online.

    If you didn't want to group and wanted to be Rambo you could give that a go as well. Some people were very good at that.

    Very interesting.. I loved planetside, and there has never been a game truly of its kind since. Even if they just update the graphics and engine and roll it out as planetside 2, I will still be there!

    PlanetSide was one of my all time fave TOG games, and I got to play with Fitzy for a while too. Bay too, from memory.

    It was a game that was so suited to TOG in many ways; you needed solid team work, some FPS stars and good numbers of people prepared to dig and do what was needed. We did that, and the gecko was well respected all around.

    If this is true, I'll be signing up sight unseen to it :D

    Planetside is where the first TOG Legend award was earned. :)
