PlanetSide 2 Aims To Smash World Record For Most Players Online In An FPS Game

The soldiers of Auraxis are heeding the call as Sony online Entertainment release the full details for the upcoming Guinness World Record attempt for hosting the most players ever in an online FPS match. The new information comes complete with all the details players will need to get involved in the event including the goals, location and time.

The current world record sits at a measly 999 players, a record the PlanetSide 2 community could easily destroy with server capacity reported to be in the thousands. The team behind the event are expecting a minimum of 1,100 concurrent players to join the event, a number that is reached on a daily basis.

Our record attempt will consist of approximately 1,100 players and take place on the Jaeger competitive server as a 3 way match on Hossin, pitting each FACTION, not servers, against each other. What this means is that a TR from Connery will be fighting alongside the combined TR populations from all servers; the same goes for the NC and VS.

This will be by far the biggest organized event for Planetside Battles, as a community, and for Planetside as a game, and we are announcing this as early as we can to prepare. We cannot do this without the help that SOE is providing and we cannot do this without YOU.

A new forum post provides players with all the information they will need to get involved. The event is scheduled to take place on January 24th 2015 at 22:00 UTC. Each player must sign up for the event individually if they hope to be included, you can find details on that here.
