Saturday, 1st December 2012 19:19 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Lost of PlanetSide 2 news today, what with SOE head John Smedley teasing Fleet Carriers, predicting the game could run well into 2025, and the news that Station Cash unlocks will be soon be shared across characters. Well, it’s a lot to take in.

First up, Fleet Carriers. Smedley tweeted concept artof a new carrier for the game. While it hasn’t been confirmed just yet, it’s a “sign of things to come.”

Smedley also took to his blog, to say that when designing the game, the team conceptualized one which would still be “running in 2025,” which quite a few years more than the “3 year plan” SOE previously toted. Still, it’s nice to know there’s plenty more heading players’ way in the future.

Finally, SOE is currently planning on making all items purchased with Station Cash unlockable account-wide. This means that items purchased on one character will also be applied to other characters.

According to creative director Matt Higby, the only thing holding up deployment is “how long it’s going to take to get it right.

“The good news is that it will be retroactive, so any items that you did buy will automatically go across your entire account once we put it in,” he told Massively.

An extra premium for unlocking items across the account will not be needed and prices will remain the same.

That’s it. Go hit up the links for more information.

    I don’t know whether to hit Smedley with a tomato for saying something so stupid or applaud him for hitting on an as-yet undiscovered marketing tack.

    The joke, of course, is that *every* MMO “is envisioned” and “could” last until 2025, if the publisher had their way.
