This past Saturday, PlanetSide 2 players rallied around an attempt to beat an almost three year old record. Organized by PlanetSideBattles and sponsored by Sony Online Entertainment, the event pulled together 1,158 players to take part in a single FPS battle.

"This amazing achievement shows not only how truly massive the PlanetSide 2 universe is, but also how inclusive its online community is," said Annie Nguyen, Video Games Records Manager at Guinness World Records. "This title truly embodies the international, record-breaking spirit of Guinness World Records."

The previous record of 999 players in a single online FPS battle was held by Man vs Machine, a browser based game by Swedish developers, MuchDifferent. That record was set back in April of 2012.

Here's some other stats from the record breaking event:

Awesome achievement but I can't help but note there really isn't much competition on this record. It could be set even higher with PS2 once it starts catching on more with ps4 and possibly xbox one. The console releases on this will make it much bigger. Shared console/pc servers on ffxiv are what make it as huge as it has become after the initial flop on release day. Now we just need some decent handheld mmos. Anyone for World of Tanks on the 3ds?

Epic 2-5 FPS rate for AMD users is awesome. With a big pleasure deleted this sh1tty game. It was awesome on CBT or early OBT, but not now.

I played PS2 a lot during this weekend, but on the PS4. I forgot how fun it can be to drive around running people over, or driving over a small cliff and landing your Sunderer on top of 4 enemies.
