Hi... I hate to poop on your parade, but your laptop is actually almost 7 years old based on the hardware it has.

The quad core i7-2960xm is still fairly decent. It should perform better than the more recent 8th gen quad core i5-8250u CPU. While the GTX 580m was nVidia's flagship mobile CPU back in 2011, it about equal to the nVdia 940mx which is considered to be a budget mobile GPU nowadays. I would say the laptop is a little above the stated requirements for Planetside 2.

Since PS2 is a free 2 play game, why not download it and try it for yourself. At worse the performance is not "good enough" and all you would have wasted is just a little bit of your time.
