Planetside 2 screenshot of the gargantuan Colossus tank

I don't know what has happened with Planetside 2 in the past few months, but I fully support its new direction. After just recently adding the Bastion Fleet Carriers as floating fortresses, Planetside 2 has now also extended the 'bigger is better' mantra to ground vehicles by introducing the most massive tank yet - the Colossus.

To put it simply, the Colossus is a beefy, five-player tank that is capable of spearheading an assault while targeting both ground and air opponents. That last part is particularly interesting because instead of simply trying to angle its gun upwards and hope for the best like the standard tanks, the Colossus is capable of going into siege mode that gives it both a powerful shield and an anti-air laser to melt both fighters and carriers alike!

Besides the big boy himself, the Colossus update has also added a brand new and highly customizable SMG to play around with, as well as a variety of new war assets Outfits can purchase in order to strengthen a certain region. You can get a little bit of a sneak peek at what all of these are about, as well as what the Colossus tank looks like in action, through the recently posted trailer. Have a looksie:
