Re: Analysis of PS 2 Teaser Trailer


Well while this thread is bumped, I guess I'll add my own little conspiracy theory.

I believe 0:07 to 0:15 could be a liberator pilot looking through the gunner' camera in the same way they could in Planetside. Here's why...

- The red "crosshair" is very similar to the teal crosshair we see for the Magrider later on (they also both have hieroglyphics on their HUD).
- Whatever we're looking from is swaying slightly.
- There's at least one altimeter among all those numbers.
- Imagine the crosshair sliding in at 0:07 and the static that follows is the transition from pilot view to gunner view. He zooms down and sees the explosions from the bombs his gunner dropped just before 0:07.

Now I expect some of the effects, such as the NC/TR/VS logos and some of the numbers were added afterwards, but take those away and I think we could well be looking down from a lib.

It could be bomber-view of a lib.

It could also be a UAV.

Or it could be the Instant-action/HART replacement. Perhaps we have the ability to de-construct and teleport every so often and that's the overhead view of where we decide to get drop-podded in.

I think it might be the latter because after they transition out of it it shows a TR looking UP, as if he was either controlling the thing or just came from it.

Pacing is something they need to increase, so I think we'll see instant-action on steroids with the option to spawn in many places rather than just a tower or base or sanc, just like in BF games today. That could be the UX for choosing where you want to go/spawn.

This thread is win, but I agree with Malorn. Its probably a HART/Drop pod variation.

While at first that sounds awesome, it could be a real pain when attacking down a hill...
Maybe it only negates sideways tilt though, or only to a certain degree

I think the overhead view is teaser fluff. A nonexistent view to provide context to the video.
