When it came time to shut down the game completely, fans decided to pay their respects to the game for one last time.

Steven Messner, the creator of this video captured Planetside 1’s last moments as he and a bunch of people experienced everything the developers had to offer for the finale. In the last minute of the game’s life, a meteor storm hit the world, ending the incredibly long war almost instantly.
