PlanetSide 2 is going F2P. This had to happen to compete, Tribes and Firefall being Free to Play made it seem like a bit too costly. This also means I will definitely be playing from launch rather than “umm”-ing and “ahh”-ing until deciding to play it after everyone else has been playing it for a few weeks, condemning me to always being behind everyone else with the time based leveling skills system. DAMN YOU TIME! DAMN YOU TO A SNAKEY HELL!
I do hope the F2P stuff is limited to fluff and not superior weapons. Balance is of vital importance in a PvP player skill based game like PlanetSide. The game will bomb if it becomes Pay2Win, and I will be very sad indeed.
