PlanetSide 2 video shows the prototype Sky Lance weapon

Friday, 24th February 2012 18:32 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

In the latest trailer for PlanetSide 2, senior artist Roel Jovellano shows how the development team went about creating the prototype Sky Lance weapon.

It’s an anti-air weapon in development from Nanite Systems, and it not only boasts “accuracy and incredible power,” it was created to combat Galaxy hot-drops on friendly facilities with a single shot. The only downside is that it leaves entire facilities vulnerable for minutes at a time. Check out the time-lapse video of the Sky Lance weapon prototype below.

The MMOFPS doesn’t have a date as yet.

    Wow, he works SO fast.

    Really though, that was totally awesome to watch.

    Tribes Ascend seems pretty crap, so I hope SOE really bring the goods with this one.

    I can’t tell you just how much I’m hoping they don’t sell out and make this yet another awesome FPS that gets utterly destroyed by making it cross platform, i.e. the curse of console.

    Planetside ROCKED. It was twitchy, skill based mental fun where you could actually use your head to get the upperhand in many situations.

    God I hope they don’t make a PS3 version. Please, no no no no.. let us have at least one more decent proper hardcore FPS on PC..
