I believe this is not real. If it is, then it is a hyperbole.

CGW and PCGamer are both known for putting full page parodies in their magazines from time to time. Most of them are really lame and usually target an esoteric game(and at 50,000 subs, PS is considered esoteric). The rest of the PC Gaming world has either never heard of PS, or totally dismissed it once they heard "subscription fee" or "$13/month."

I don't doubt mech units will be coming soon; I just don't think they will be like they are in the magazine.

I expect them to be only about 6 meters tall, which is enough to look over a base wall and give a healthy dose of death from that position to the courtyard.

But this article is still good news. For good or bad, it gives PlanetSide more exposure to people outside of word of mouth and fileplanet ads.

It could be a hoax put on by the magazine but if so I don't get why they would target an, as you call it, esoteric game. Who is going to get the joke? What purpose does it serve? Most readers obviously don't play Planetside so to put out such an easy to swallow hoax with no hints of falsehood would have most readers just believing it outright... that enters more into "lie" territory than joke territory and I wouldn't think SOE would be happy about it. It would seem far "funnier" to spread a hoax about a big game, like Battlefield or Counterstrike or something. A lot more people would get a clue. Actually, if it is a hoax, it would seem far "funnier" if it was actually funny. :/

Not many readers of CGW play PS? I dont think theres a way of knowing that unless U did a poll or sumin. Anyway, I play PS and subscribe to PC gamer and CGW. Sadly Iam not lucky like some people and get the magazine 2 months early.

Spork just confirmed it around 0400 hours, he is speaking with PR reps now and we should be hearing total confirmation by tomorrow, news from official forums.

As just said in mirc:

<SporkfirePS> As I said over in the launchpad chat, the BFR's are real. But Smoke and I have to get with PR to decide what to say further.

I just smell poorly executed and far off down the pipe hype all over this, call my a cynic but theres a definite pattern here.

Ah yes, confirmation of BFRs finally.

It leaves the question: What other sort of goodies do the Devs have planned for Planetside?

Yeknow, I just thought about it, and these BFRs are going to make me feel like I'm a Power Ranger huh.

So happy I bought Core Combat for 10 dollars now, All I have to do now is renew my subscription around August.

one of the reasons spork said they were so hush hush was because of all the physics work they had to do. They are all walkers.

Oh poo. I was wrong. Oh well. I'm used to it. Har har.

*shoots you all with a sweeper, but you are all standing next to a wall, so it does no damage.*

Edit: This brings an important question. Can you step on people? If so, would it be vehicle mowing 2.0? I would think you will not be able to instantly kill someone by stepping on them, even if it doesn't make sense.

I can imagine someone getting stepped on and then the BFR falling over.
