Sony Online Entertainment has released this sneak peak of the Sky Lance weapon prototype for their upcoming first person shooter MMO, Planetside 2!
An anti-air weapon prototype in development from Nanite Systems, the Sky Lance boasts accuracy and incredible power and was created to combat Galaxy hot-drops on friendly facilities with a single shot. However, the energy required to fire the stationary Sky Lance renders entire facilities vulnerable for minutes at a time. Continued research into ways to manage the power requirements of the Sky Lance is ongoing.
PlanetSide 2 is a direct sequel to Planetside, a game that revolutionized the way we play FPS games in the massively multiplayer space. PlanetSide 2 has been generating excitement for the past year or so since SOE announced the game during their annual Fan Faire event last year.
