The Planetside 2 community has successfully organised an online battle involving over 1000 players, breaking the previous Guinness World Record.


The event, which was organised by Planetside Battles was pitched to the community last week. 1,158 players have answered the call, smashing the record for “Most Players Online in an FPS Battle.”

The previous 999 players record was held by browser-based shooter Man vs Machine. Planetside 2 producer David Carey accepted the certificate. Take a look.
