A record attempt for "Most Players Online in an FPS Battle" takes place later this month.
The Guinness World Record for the most number of concurrent players in one shooter server is currently held by Man vs Machine, after setting the record back in 2012 with 999 players online at the same time. However, some Planetside 2 players are hoping to beat that record.
The Plansetside Battles subreddit hopes to gather around 1,100 players in order to reclaim the record for "Most Players Online in an FPS Battle" taken from the first Planetside game by Man vs Machine.
This battle is to be held on 24th January at 10pm UTC, and will see all three factions taking part. All Planetside 2 players are welcome to attend and should register their intent to take part over here.
Planetside 2 is due to start its PlayStation 4 closed beta on 20th, and you can find out more here.
