PlanetSide 2 “Death is No Excuse” CGI Trailer Looks Spectacular

on July 26, 2012 1:28 PM

Blur Studios recently showed off their “Death Is No Excuse” trailer at ChinaJoy 2012. Knowing that players tend to dislike being roped in with pretty graphics and underwhelming gameplay, the development studio has made a point to hold off the cinematics until people had a proper idea of what the gameplay was like. Their aesthetic aspirations for the game and its setting are brilliant, that’s for sure.

In the trailer, a soldier fights what seems like an unending horde of enemy soldiers. Engaging the defending troops both on the ground and in the air, the jaw-dropping action sets the game’s sights pretty high. PlanetSide 2 is currently in beta and will be free to play upon launch. You can view the trailer below.
