Matt Higby, Creative Director on PlanetSide 2, has given a brand new interview in which he discusses PlanetSide 2 as well as some of his favorite aspects of the game.
The whole interview is worth a read, and isn't terrbly lengthy, so we definitely recommend checking it out at http://massively.joystiq.com/. One of the more insightful moments was Matt Higby sharing three of his favorite aspects of the game...
1. Continent and level designs -- We've really hand-crafted the world of PlanetSide 2 to support awesome combat no matter where you are; this will mean that a lot more of the world will be under contention at any time and fights will tend to be a lot fresher and more dynamic.
2. Modern gameplay mechanics -- Everything from firing a rifle to flying a jet feels like a modern AAA shooter; there are no compromises to the gameplay mechanics in order to make the game massive, that's been a huge challenge and a tremendous accomplishment.
3. Free-to-play -- I know that a lot of people cringe when they hear it still, but F2P is really a great thing for PlanetSide 2. It means that populations are going to be able to support the massive-scale battles that make this game incredible.
