The European online videogame publisher ProSiebenSat.1 Games and Koch Media have announced that PlanetSide 2 has surpassed five million registered players. Having originally made its debut back in November 2012, PlanetSide 2 has grown rapidly and will even benefit from a PlayStation 4 edition.
In PlanetSide 2, players take on the roles of warriors fighting in massive science-fiction battles for dominance on the distant planet of Auraxis. Not just dozens, but thousands of soldiers face each other on foot, with various types of armoured vehicles, and in heavily armed aircraft. The continuous war between the Vanu Sovereignty, the New Conglomerate and the Terran Republic rages on three huge continents as the warring empires clash amongst the ice, desert, cities and wastelands. Each individual soldier has a multitude of roles at their disposal which the player can improve continuously. Every fighter can become an important part of a never-ending epic struggle in the massive world of PlanetSide 2.
PlanetSide 2 requires the players to employ tactics, teamwork and communication, promotes clan-building and currently brings communities together throughout the world. A retail edition of PlanetSide 2 will be available later this month ahead of a PlayStation 4 release later this year. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on PlanetSide 2.
