That does look pretty darn sweet. It's definitely my type of game. I loved Planetside back a few years ago, but it was definitely missing the depth and persistence of other MMO's. No missions and such made it seem like just another shooter, no achievement of 'advancing' your character besides new certifications, which were old in like 2 hours. Besides, I'm getting fed up waiting for Huxley, which may or may not ever actually come out, and may or may not flop with the lack of buzz it's gotten.
Unfortunately, my Ideal MMO has and probably never will be made. It would combine the crafting/user-economy and open ended life of Star Wars Galaxies, with the gameplay of Planetside. Or some such.
My favorite gaming experience ever was in Planetside. I was helping defend a base, probably about 100 of us, while being attacked by about 100 of the enemy. I was manning the ramparts with about 15 others above the outside wall, with my sniper rifle, just picking people off as they approached. Below, at the entry our infantry and their infantry were going at it, while tanks were fighting out in the field. And it was a 100% online player created scene. It was just cool to envision the whole experience, and I'm always hoping another game comes along that can supplant that moment as my favorite.
