Have a closer look at how SOE’s Planetside 2 is shaping up. We’ve got a ton of new screenshots of the MMOFPS with a nice mix of images showing the game’s various factions, infantry combat, vehicles, and the game’s day and night cycle. 

What you can’t see here is the game in motion. Using SOE’s own Forge Light Engine, fans of the original Planetside should see a much noticeable improvement in just about every visual aspect of the upcoming sequel with realistic physics behavior for just about everything. What does this mean? You can do a barrel roll as you soar through the air, for starters. What more do you need to know?

After you enjoy the eye candy, keep your eye on GamesRadar. We plan to bring you video from SOE’s GDC 2012 demonstration of Planetside 2 soon. Hosted by creative director Matt Higby, the demo will show you air combat, infantry combat, tanks, the game’s cash shop, customization options, stat sheets and much more. Trust us. It’s all super exciting.

    I remember the long term stalemates where people were desperately bombarding each other over hills in the hopes of success. Those were the old days...

    I wonder how the medic class will play because who's going to stay in squad formation when everyone has a jetp-- oh.

    The screenshots imply a much smaller scale of fighting compared to the original. Where are the 100v100 fights of yesteryear ?
