If EverQuest Next is the game that never was and H1Z1 is the game that will be -- it's still in early access! -- then PlanetSide 2 is the game that just is. It's been steadily chugging along for five years, and Daybreak Game Company is celebrating its half-decade anniversary next week.

Starting now and going until next Friday, Nov. 24, players earn double XP in PS2. On Monday, the 20th, redeem the promo code 5YearsPS2 to get a free 5th Anniversary decal or purchase one of three anniversary bundles to show your love for the game. For more on all the 5th Anniversary festivities, including Monday's livestream, check out the PS2 website.

In other PlanetSide 2 news, earlier this week, some members of the PS2 dev team hosted an AMA on Reddit. You can read the summary of important points here, which include such statements as:

"the game is doing exceptionally for being 5 years old. We will continue to improve it for as long as we can." How long will that be? "So long as players continue their current spending patterns, we can support and develop the game."

There was a lot said about the recent Combined Arms Initiative and Critical Mass updates. Here's developer Wrel's long answer to several pertinent questions about CAI. Elsewhere, he states that Critical Mass "was a good step forward. Probably the first one in a long time that actually starts to address core issues."

For the future, Wrel said that "2018 is going to have a heavy emphasis on outfits and leadership, as well as the new player experience." And sorry to those of you who want ships to go with your tanks and planes: Naval action isn't in the works. Hey, there's always War Thunder.

i still can not play this game , because it need GOOD computer, when they crossover to "64 bit windows only" they raise need for everything , so like i said i still can not play like few million people ,and when i would be able to buy better comp. the game will be 10 years old , and there will be so many better games to play. So there- smart programers, next time do not make f2p game for 1000 people on this planet.
