If you’re looking for new video game to play on your computer over the long holiday weekend and you’re a fan of first-person shooters, you might want to give PlanetSide 2 a go. The game has launched in North America and Europe and is a massively-multiplayer online shooter that has gamers enlisting in one of three empires. The empires include the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, or Vanu Sovereignty.

The game promises intense battles using hand-to-hand combat, various weapons, ground vehicles, and air vehicles. The game uses Sony Online Entertainment’s proprietary MMO game engine called ForgeLight. While the game is free to play, players can purchase items and content in-game.

Players can also choose to purchase a subscription at $9.99(USD) per month that gives scalable gains for resources, XP, and passive certification points. Premium members also get priority login access to game servers along with access to new cosmetic items and monthly Station Cash bonuses. The game is available as a digital online download right now for Windows PCs.
