I’m sure there had to be some camping. Planetside 2 set a new Guinness World Record for “Most players online in a single FPS battle.”
The actual battle took place on January 24th on the Jaeger servers. SOE partner with community-site Planetside Battles in order to make it happen. 1,158 virtual soldiers took part in a massive battle involving all three of the game’s Empires.
The previous record was previously held by Man vs. Machine in 2012 with 999 players.
Planetside 2 is available now on PC with the PS4 version currently in closed beta.
