A Huge hit on PC and now coming to PS4, PlanetSide 2 is an impressive massively multiplayer online first person shooter featuring epic battles between hundreds of players on a single battlefield, set in a persistent world spanning four continents.
On foot, vehicle and air combat takes place across four huge maps, players come together in enormous battles to win control of critical territories and key resources for their Empire. With an extensive skill tree and free-form class-based system, players customize their soldier, weapons and vehicles to match their play-style, as well as the needs of their squad, outfit or Empire. The world of PlanetSide 2 is massive and persistent with every soldier capable of making a difference. Think Halo mixed with Battlefield, but on a massive scale and you’re getting there.
The Planetside 2 PS4 Beta is due to launch before the end of the year, with creative director Matt Higby telling Eurogamer that it will be a “full-on console experience” and not just a port of the original. It’s also running at 1080p resolution on PS4, and, they’re “still trying to shoot for 60fps”, so fingers crossed it’s going to look as epic as it’s battles are!
UPDATE: This Beta Is No Longer Available
