Planetside 2 PS4 Update

Matt Higby's Avatar Posted by Creative Director, PlanetSide 2

Greetings from the PlanetSide 2 team! We’ve had a busy start to 2014 with tons of progress being made on the PS4 version of PlanetSide 2! Getting the world’s largest FPS experience to the console is no small feat, and we have an incredibly talented, hard-working team dedicated to the cause.

Each day is a flurry of playtests, reviews, brainstorming, check-ins, and more playtesting for good measure; the progress we’ve made over the last few months has been amazing to watch.

Planetside 2

Now the team is looking forward to an exciting summer full of events and reveals, kicking off this month at E3 and MLG Anaheim (June 20th through 22nd) with the very first hands-on playable version of PlanetSide 2 on PS4! We absolutely can’t wait for you to experience the epic scale and intensity of PlanetSide 2.

One of the best things about working on a game like PlanetSide 2 is that it’s a living, evolving game that’s constantly being updated and improved upon. In addition to work being done for PS4, the team is working on a lot of content and game systems enhancements to the live game. Some of the biggest features we’re excited to deliver in the next few months are: Hossin, our fourth full 64sqkm continent, an advanced achievement system called Directives, player-driven continent conquest/locking, and expansions to our game’s Outfits systems.

The best part? These new features will be implemented on both the PC and PS4 versions of the game, and new features and content will continually be added to the game for years to come. And did I mention, all this for a free-to-play title out of the gate — no PlayStation Plus required.

So, check out our new art, buckle up, and get ready. PlanetSide 2 is coming to PS4, and we can’t wait for you to see what all the hype is about!

Hey Matt,

I’m very excited for this game! It’s my most anticipated game for the PS4. Please consider creating avatar pictures and themes for the PS4. Also another idea is provide a variety of stuff for the Share Factory.

Cheers!!!

wow still no release date, this was originally supposed be a laucnh title then got moved to the end of the year(2013) then got moved to summer this year and now we still dont have a release date….that’s just dumb….At least give a teaser trailer or something, this game has not been shown once running on a ps4…..I would be extremely surprised if it actually comes out this year. Getting sick of all these ps4 game delays

I am also sick of all the game delay’s. Every game is being delayed till 2015. I cant wait till there sales crash because no one can afford to buy a $60 game every week! My max is like 6 games a year @ $60. I don’t know many gamers or friends of mine that by even 6 a year! They need to spread them out more and need to get us something for the PS4 now. I haven’t even played on my PS4 in over a month because there is nothing to do on it.

All we want to hear is a release date? How many E3’s does it take to get an officially release?

Free to play lol, nothing is free in life. Look at warframe if you want to be competitive get ready to fork out some money to buy the ingame currency to upgrade whatever needs upgrading.

Assumed it wouldn’t require PS+. Always nice to have it confirmed though.

@9: Not sure what your point is, because you don’t use punctuation properly. If you’re saying Warframe’s F2P is bad… then… being competitive? In a primarily co-op game? Yeah… okay. You don’t need to spend any money to enjoy Warframe.

Many of my Quantum Dawn guys are ready to teach you console gamers how real large scale is done! We cannot wait to #MakeWarStories with you guys as VS against the TR/NC.

@9: Many in my outfit have sunk hundreds of hours into this game and never bought a single thing. It’s done with Planetside much more than you think.

Most important thing to me, and I assume many more, does this have a split-screen multiplayer? It would be a time to bring first good split-screen multiplayer shooter to the PS4 so I can have a lot more fun with real person sitting next to me playing together!

Will the PC/PS4 universe be connected? IE if I’ve been playing off and on on SOE servers from my PC can I flip over to the PS4?

Sorry for my lack of enthusiasm but the fact that it’s still “coming soon” bothers me. If the game is going to be playable at E3 why can’t it launch that week. Why make us wait longer. At this rate you will lose players to the Destiny beta.

Its awesome you guys are working on a live pc game of this scale while bringing it to PS4. I’ll play a lil more on pc and maybe I’ll be a lil more ahead of the curve when it comes to PS4 ~_^

Will the Directives translate to trophies??

@ trexpert No it wont be.

i totally agree with the people upset about the delays, to say theres been development up to years ahead of this system, the delays are completely outrageous and uncalled for, these arent entry level developers, and definitely not new to the business, its shameful to say that theres such an unreliable schedule on these kinds of things, especially when more often than not, theres pre-releases on other consoles and we have to wait so long just to get ports

YES! I love this game, it coming to PS4 is SO awesome, I almost died. One question, will Remote Play be supported? If it is I think my PS4 and Vita might explode from how much I’ll play this. Keep up the good work SOE!

This game is huge.
How about H1Z1? Will it have a PS4 release date the same time as the PC version?
