An MMOFPS with the emphasis on ‘Massively’, PlanetSide 2 makes other shooters look quaint thanks to its enormous maps, bountiful vehicle selection and support for up to 2000 simultaneous players. As one of three rival factions, you're fighting for control of the planet Auraxis, and for once (well, not counting the original game) it truly feels like you're engaged in proper mass-scale warfare.

It might put your PC through its paces, but at least it won't trouble your wallet: PlanetSide 2 is free-to-play. While there are cash shop purchases, they're thankfully restricted to cosmetic or time-saving features, keeping players on an even keel.

Technically astounding mass-scale warfare that spews out gaming fantasy fulfilment. Bring a friend, or you’ll get lonely.
