Planetside is dead, here are its final moments

R.I.P. Planetside. The massively multiplayer online first-person shooter has been going, in one form or another, since 2003, but yesterday (as per Daybreak’s announcement two weeks ago), it closed its doors for good. By which I mean, ruddy great meteors fell from the sky, distracting players while someone on a computer somewhere clicked a button that made the world  go offline.

If you played the original Planetside at any point during its lifecycle—the original run, or its post-2014 free-to-play incarnation—you might like to watch a world you fought and died over being obliterated by flaming chunks of rock. If so, you’re in luck—someone has recorded the end of Planetside and stuck it up on YouTube.
