Planetside 2 was released on November 20, 2012 by Sony Entertainment. The game was developed by Sony Entertainment. PlanetSide 2 is an all-out planetary war, where thousands of players battle as one across enormous continents. Utilize infantry, ground and air vehicles, and teamwork to destroy your enemies in this revolutionary first-person shooter on a massive scale.

Empires and their soldiers battle in an all-out planetary war on a scale never before seen, in stunning, breathtaking detail. PlanetSide 2 battles persist and the war never ends, offering constant challenges of individual skill, team grit, and empire-wide coordination. Take up arms and drop into intense infantry, vehicle, and air combat.

Players come together in enormous battles across four massive continents to win control of critical territories, gaining key resources for their empire. With an extensive skill tree and class-based system, players can customize their soldier, weapons, and vehicles to match their playstyle and meet the needs of their squads, outfits, and empires. In the world of PlanetSide 2, every soldier makes a difference.

Players will choose to align with one of three empires: the militaristic, authoritarian Terran Republic; the rebellious, freedom-fighting New Conglomerate; or the technocratic, alien-influenced Vanu Sovereignty. Each empire has access to empire-specific weapons, attachments, vehicles, abilities, and more.

The core concepts of the game are unique and I haven’t seen anything like it in any other FPS and that’s probably the only thing keeping me playing still. Daybreak has not managed the game well at all. The game seems to have many critical features, including communications, broken that take weeks or more to fix while they continually roll out more pointless updates that don’t really improve the game. Evidently this game is laden with security and privacy violations.

The game uses the Battle-Eye anti cheat which sends up all of your system’s process information and has unfederated access to all of your system’s memory even when the game is not running. It has been known to leak very sensitive information in the past and opens you wide up to spying and other invasive data mining by any company that uses it. The compulsory account with Daybreak is another concern about privacy.
