Then I saw Planet Side 2, which is coming to Steam next Tuesday, a F2P game. Its a MMO-FPS game. I am currently in the Beta, and its a good game. There are some issues thats need to be worked out (weapons take way to long to unlock for example), but its solid.
I have been in battles with over 130 people over a single base. As much as I love futuristic games, I love huge battles as much. Squads are 12 men, platoons are 3 squads big. The maps are huge as well.
Its beta, but man, they do need some major work on the optimization, apparently they already put in some fixes in the last patch (I personally have not tested it). Its DX9 based, which saddens me, but oh well.
I've been meaning to use my beta, but finding people to play with is annoying at best. Guess i'm just on the wrong server or something? Oh, whichfaction did you pick? I went with the purple alien tech one (Haven't llayed the game in a while, i've just given them nicknames) cause the Heavies look awesome for them. Plus hovertanks ftw.
