PlanetSide 2 "Death is No Excuse" CGI trailer is over three minutes of choreographed warfare

Sony Online Entertainment debuted the complete PlanetSide 2 CGI trailer today at the ChinaJoy International Digital Entertainment Expo. Wow, what a spectacle. It's obviously not at all representative of what it's like to play the game (unfortunately, I'm pretty sure you can't run on top of a dropship while shooting passengers through the hull), but it is an impressive vision of the game's aspirations, if a bit further on the gritty, desaturated side of the planet than we expected.

Have a read of our most recent preview for an idea of what playing PlanetSide 2 feels like, and look for lots more coverage as it enters beta.


As Executive Editor, Tyler spends a lot of time editing reviews and looking at spreadsheets, and whatever time is left over writing reviews. People joke that he doesn't like 90 percent of the games he plays, but he'll tell you he just has very discerning tastes.
