The Biggest Multiplayer Battle Fought In Planetside 2
One of the biggest battles in a first-person shooter has just occurred with over 1,000 players answering the call. This event was pitched to the community a few short weeks ago, and now it has become a reality. The battle’s participants fought on Hossin, one of the Planetside 2 servers. The number topped out at 1,158 players among the game’s three factions. David Carey, the game’s producer, accepted the certificate (see above) for the Guinness World Record for the “Most Players Online in an FPS Battle.”
Man vs Machine was the previous holder of the record with 999 players, however it should be noted that it was developed to achieve the record. The previous holder of the record was the original Planetside title.
