I have had to send these to a couple of people, and I always have to go find them again. So here is a post of a lot of good videos for players new to Planetside 2. All of them by Wrel. If you play Planetside 2, go subscribe to his channel. He has tons of content over there, including weapon reviews, montages, loadout reviews, and equipment reviews.
First up is the general overview of the gameplay in Planetside 2. This covers the three factions, how base captures work, and how to join up with other players.

Basic Training – How to Capture a Base
Basic Training – Squads and Platoons
Oh. My. God. This is how you remaster a game the right way. I know its only a teaser, but it looks like they are doing everything right. The gameplay looks completely intact from the original. Everything from level layout, item placement, enemies & weapons looks to be perfect. Its like they somehow magically took the game, stuck it in a modern engine, updated the UI and art assets, made some tweaks here and there and called it day. I was pretty skeptical before that they could pull of a proper remaster of this game but now I am super excited for it. For more detail, check out the Polygon Article.
Now they just have to do the same for System Shock 2. C’mon Night Dive Studios, you can put a price tag of $1,000 on it and I will still buy it.
For those of you that can’t wait until 2017 for this, there is an enhanced edition of the original out on Steam.
Here is that update I talked about in my last post. Honestly, this is how the game should have been in the first place. Back to basics! Good stuff!
Started playing again after a few years of being away. The game is still fun, and apparently getting updated! What a great time to come back.
