  • Putting Flesh on the Bones.
    In their latest Development Uplink, the developers behind PlanetSide descrbied how they were "fleshing out the details" of Combat Engineering.

    Currently the team is flipping through the lists and checking them twice for the Offensive Combat Engineering (Offensive? Shouldn't we come up with something better?...more on that later) and it's getting close to being complete. The art models are complete for the most part but we're hashing out the functionality a bit more.

  • Looks like Sony is going to try to hit the free sub model that has made Guild Wars so popular.

    Hello all,

    For the next few weeks we are continuing to work on the "Subscription Free" service. For those of you that have not seen the explanation of this service, I'll list it out for you here.

    Subscription Free - "Fodder Program"
    New Players will be able to create a new account and and play for free for a period of 12 months. The new account will have limitations on the BattleRank (+ or - BR8) and the CommandRank (+ or - CR2). Essentially, new players will be able to have access to any part of the game but they will be limited on the diversity of their arsenal. Time Frame – We are shooting for February 14th for Launch.

    Unfortunately they're a bit late to hop on that bandwagon and I'd really like to see them make it REALLY free.
