Isn't that the whole meaning behind Death is No Excuse? Because you can respawn.
Naw, it's more like death is no excuse to be a chicken $#!%. Though in the universe of Planetside, the fact they'll be reborn in a tube does help make being a fearless sonuvabitch a lot easier.

1 million views? Well it looks like the trailer is working so far? I hate to admit it but when you think of it : this trailer was more to bring in new people to Planetside 2.
Maybe if we are lucky they will they will do a trailer or trailers about factions and history?
I personly have always injoyed games that had a demo about the history and factions befor i make a character.

I can't believe people are crying about the trailer....

First of all almost all good games have trailers like this that don't represent gameplay.



If you wanna cry about a trailer then you should cried about the E3 trailers...that looked horrible.

Yup. The animations in this game are just not good enough when watching to make a trailer that stands up to other games.

I wonder if anyone noticed the desaturation. Planetside is much more pretty and colorful than this.

That's something, anyway.

Are those unique hits or individual views?

Nobody noticed, except like a dozen people who posted before you.

It's an advertisement trailer. When people think of war, they don't think of bright colors, just lots of dirt, grit, and rubble.

You'll also notice Planetside doesn't have blood anywhere within it.

When they get in game, sure it will be colorful. For what it's worth though, having the cinematic being just as colorful may have given it a more cartoonish feeling. Typically, 95% of the game populace looks at "cartoonish" and instantly thinks "for kids" because they're immature morons trying to pass themselves off as adults, but like any good ad, you don't want to dissuade the people you're trying to attract.

Re: Death is No Excuse Full Length Trailer

I linked the trailer to a friend and I just thought you guys should know that, while he does believe it under-represents two of three factions.

He says it gave him the impression that the character it focused on was just one small part in a large battle, and how even that one small part can change the course.

He has never played Planetside before, and never even really seen how the game plays. So its not like the trailer entirely misrepresents the game, it just represents it in a way that someone who has never played the game before can understand.

I can believe it. It's the same thing as criticizing a movie. People think elements suck because they would have done things differently. But when you break it down, it comes down to a style choice. Blur Studios clearly wanted to do a looong tracking shot for this trailer. It's a phenomenal tracking shot too.

A number of people seems they would have rather seen a rock, paper, scissors type trailer. That's a style choice though. I think it's unfair to say that means the trailer sucked.

There is one thing that is undeniable. The CGI in this trailer was gorgeous.

And this just made me drool... This is going to be pretty sick! Too bad they didn't use in game footage though, might of made it even better! Can't wait for the full version!
