Sony Online Entertainment's in-house game engine is known as ForgeLight and it's a powerful specimen. You might be unfamiliar with the game engine, but that's to be understood as PlanetSide 2 is currently the only game making use of it.
ForgeLight will also be the powerhouse being the next EverQuest game, but as of right now it is exclusive to PlanetSide 2.
Here to give us something of a tech demo are PlanetSide 2 Senior Art Director Tramell Ray Isaac and Technical Director Ryan Elam. This demo comes as part of the latest Behind the Battle Lines episode, a series in which PlanetSide 2 developers share behind-the-scenes insight on the game.
In other PlanetSide 2 news, game update 5 has gone out and includes a couple worthy updates to PlanetSide 2, namely; rocket launchers and account wide unlocks. Basically, besides now being able to access Empire-specific rocket launchers, players can now use items purchased with Station Cash across all of the characters on their account.
SOE will also be releasing a PlanetSide 2 Play App on iOS and Android devices that will give players the ability to stay connected to the game, even when they can't be fighting for their faction directly.
Finally, this weekend will be Double XP and Double SC so make sure you get in on the bonuses and fire up PlanetSide 2 this weekend.
