Planetside 2 locks in on Guinness World Record

It’s coming! On January 24th, Planetside Battles and Sony Online Entertainment are coordinating a mass strike to break the Guinness World Record for Most Players Online in an FPS Battle.

On January 29, 2012, Man vs Machine established the record at 999 players playing a first-person shooter. Since then, no one has been able to smash this achievement. With Planetside 2, a game designed for hundreds upon hundreds of simultaneous players to wreck each other over vast battle maps, it was only a matter of time for the game to fulfill its promise of chaos and mayhem!

The organizing team for this world record desired 1,100 people to participate in the January 24th event. While the sign-up was listed here, it has already reached capacity. The mass three-way fight will occur on the region of Hossin, within the Jaeger competitive server.

Further details about the event are available here.
