So, with the recent full scale launch of PlanetSide 2, it has not doubt peaked the interest of many gamers looking for something new. It's a hybrid of FPS and RTS in an MMO environment, and with that many three letter acronyms its no suprise that gamers from across multiple genres would go half-chub from that description alone... not to mention it's free. However, for those looking to get involved, it can be quite overwhelming to make it over the initial hump of learning the ropes.
The game offers several video tutorials in the game launcher, but they don't do a great job at unifying the information in a timely manner, and god only knows that one's attention span can easily get the better of them.
But fear not, for this video will cover everything you need to know to get started in playing the game! From classes, bases, weapons, and game mechanics, this guide will set you ahead of the plethora of bambi's teabagging eachother at the starting warpgate. And if your still on the fence about the game and would like to know if it is really worth your time, the video doubles as a journalistic review so that you can be sure that you don't waste your hard earned..... bandwidth (the game is free and I needed someway to finish that line).
If your not into the whole "video" thing, or if your deaf or blind, a full transcript of the video is linked below. Sadly, as there is no brail copy yet in production, those of you who are deaf and blind are out of luck. Sorry Hellen Keller, you're going to have to sit this one out (going to hell for that).
