Since the latest nVidia beta drivers, I keep finding myself looking at the game a lot more (as opposed to actually 'playing' the game) so I felt compelled to make this tribute to the work of the SOE developers.

Pretty good video, Planetside 2 really is a gorgeous game imo - the lighting in particular and the sheer scale and detail that the engine can handle, is excellent.

Yea, there have been a few, but with the Physx added back in, I thought that one showcasing those effects. The lighting in PS2 is just so good. Night fights are so distracting and I get killed a lot from looking at the lighting.

Wow never really noticed how amazing it actually looks until now. Just need a gpu that can actually handle it on max.

How does a GTX 570 run this? Furthermore, how does a 670 run it, at 1080p?

I have a 670FTW and I can play on max but during big fights my FPS will dip to 25-30 fps, which to me is unplayable. This game seems way to CPU intensive.

The game is more CPU heavy, and with the one in your signature, you will be fine. I have the same CPU, but at clock speeds.

HavocEbonlore

Yes, they have been in the game for as long as I think it has existed. If there was a time in the beta that they didn't exist, then that's news to me. The infiltrators have the sniper rifles, can temporarily cloak, hack enemy terminals/turrets, and fire motion sensors.

I made a thread not long ago bringing up how good this game looked and everyone bashed it.

What happened other than a few cool particle effects? :P

I like Planetside 2. The graphics are awesome, and the gameplay is fantastic. The only thing I DO NOT like about it is that I feel like the game is a bit unbalanced the way classes and guns and cert points are used. Good game other than that though.

Have they improved the optimisation?

I tried the beta but 20fps is unplayable.

Is it worth trying again?

Planetside 2 is a great game, it's almost a shame it is F2P. I tried it and loved it, though I'm not playing it currently because I'm quite busy these days.

Despite what JigglyWiggly said, I think it runs fine. I have an i5 2500k at stock speeds and a 560 Ti 2win, I always play on ultra, and I leave the Physx on while playing. With all that, I still get around 50fps in most battles.

I still don't see the appeal with the graphics and visuals.. Maybe less bloom would make it look a lot better. I'm indifferent on this.

Yea, I hate bloom and I wish so much that they gave us the option to disable.
