Speaking with PC Gamer UK, PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matt Higby talked about how Sony Online Entertainments upcoming MMOFPS differs from other shooters like Modern Warfare and Battlefield. Higby compared the two popular FPS franchises to being more akin to Checkers, while PlanetSide 2 is more like Risk.
I always like to say that Planetside and Planetside 2 are sort of like, theyre to Battlefield and Modern Warfare and those FPS games and dont take this as a denigration at all, I love those games, I play those games but those games are sort of like Checkers where were sort of like Risk, says creative director Matt Higby.
Theres a whole territory control mechanic, Higby continues, so as you conquer bases, towers, bunkers, even just ridges, like out in the wilderness, ridge lines and mountains and stuff, you can capture all these things and capture nodes for play resources.
