Planetside 2's community breaks the Guinness World Record for the most players in a single first person shooter battle.

It didn’t take very long for Guinness to approve the record that was set by the Planetside 2 community. Planetside 2‘s Producer David Carry already has the certificate proving that, according to Guinness, they did break the world record.

This is an excellent show of what gaming has come to and what is possible in the future. Previously the record was held by a browser-based FPS called Man vs. Machine, which featured a battle of 999 players. What separates Planetside 2 from Man vs. Machine is that Man vs. Machine was developed specifically to break a record, while Planetside 2 was developed as a game that meant to be played like any other.
