It's not called the Sneaky Bastards. But I am CO of the Air Cav Platoon 'Jet Bastards'. And we've got a Comrade Clan that specializes in Hit n Run n sneaky tactics.

Live Interview with Matt Higby by ChuftyChufty, 10 May 2012 19:02

A new Developer Spotlight has been posted on the official PlanetSide 2 site. Kevin Moyer talks about his work on the team and how the game's impressive vehicles have taken shape.

A new time-lapse video, this time showing the process of creating a new sniper scope for the NC, has been posted on Youtube:

Following on from the Terran Republic's empire brief last month, attention has now turned to the New Conglomerate. Head over to the offical PlanetSide 2 Website for all the juicy details.

There has been plenty of activity on the social networks too. The official Facebook page has plenty of screenshots for your consumption and, if you're into the whole Twitter thing, you can follow @mhigby and @PS_TRay.

There's also a new Empire Design video, all about the NC. Enjoy!

Over on the rich informational gold mines of the PlanetSide Universe Forums, SOE Creative Director Matt Higby has confirmed some interesting speculation surrounding the Mossie and Reaver, and announced a new air vehicle in the process.

It seems each empire will have their own unique air fighter. The Mossie is now a TR vehicle, the NC have the Reaver. The VS will have a new fighter called the Dyson, although that name is subject to change.

They will all handle and behave slightly differently, but as is becoming clear, players will have a lot of flexibility in the game to customise vehicles to their exactly liking.

Read all about it here:

SOE have announced on their forum that they will be conducting the "first ever PlanetSide 2 Webcast" via Stickam on Thursday 15th September. It will start at 23:00 UTC (Midnight BST, 16:00 US Pacific).

The webcast will be hosted at

The official PlanetSide 2 website has posted a new feature it's calling Comm-Link. Creative Director Matt Higby talks about how development is going, their design goals, and introduces members of the development team.

Be sure to check it out. There are new as-yet-unseen screenshots to dribble over as well!

Matt Higby Introduces Comm-Link by ChuftyChufty, 14 Sep 2011 17:29

The venerable gentlemen over at RPS have stolen a bit of Matt Higby's time and have used it wisely.

Some juicy details buried in this lot. A MAX unit with Anti Air on one arm and Anti Infantry on the other? Yeah, go on then.

We've added tonnes of new information to the Wiki too so be sure to look around.

IncGamers have posted some as yet unseen screenshots. Take a look at the Media page for these and all the screenshots we have so far.

This latest batch seem to be simply quality stills from the trailer we have already seen and so do not necessarily tell us anything new. There are also two new concept art pictures - they look to me like a medic and an infiltrator. What do you guys think?

In addition to the screenshots, IncGamers are reporting that SOE has 'confirmed' that there will be no PS3 version. However, the astute Mr Higby has, as usual, carefully avoided a flat out denial…

US retailers including Amazon (PlanetSide Universe sponsored link) and GameStop.

Presumably these are just placeholders but the GameStop page has a good synopsis which is worth a read for all you information junkies.

Thanks PlanetSide Universe

PlanetSide 2: Pre-Order now! by ChuftyChufty, 20 Jul 2011 18:39

I love the idea of specialization in outfits, if you can specialize for infiltrating then I'm totally making an infiltration unit, the "101st sneaky bastards", have an army of people cloaked assassins causing all sorts of trouble around Auraxis :)

I, for one, think this is great news. With a dedicated fanbase, this sort of model combined with a subscription should raise enough money to keep servers switched on and updates coming.

Re: Smedley: Cash Shop in PS2 by ChuftyChufty, 13 Jul 2011 12:18

Planetside Universe have posted an eye-opening transcript of their Q&A session with John Smedley.

He has confirmed that PlanetSide 2 will feature a shop selling items such as appearance customisations for outfits, for cash. Fortunately, he was keen to stress that they will not be selling more powerful weapons and vehicles this way.

You can read the full Q&A here:

Smedley: Cash Shop in PS2 by ChuftyChufty, 13 Jul 2011 12:16

Indeed. There's obviously a long way to go development-wise but it sounds like they've been working on the actual game for a few years.

I want them to take their time and get it right… but I want PlanetSide 2 now! >:(

I figured this would be the case back when they announced they had the main game done but the just needed to work on the art assets, by that point where was about 2 renders released and that was it, even now we've seen only a tiny fraction the total artwork needed.
