PlanetSide 2 Closed Beta Hits PS4 January 20th

Clint Worley's Avatar Posted by on Jan 07, 2015 // Executive Producer, PlanetSide 2

The PlanetSide 2 Closed Beta for PS4 is starting this month — January 20th, to be exact! The development team has been hard at work refining, optimizing, and creating an amazing console version of PlanetSide 2 on PS4, and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.

We’ll be using this beta period to test our servers, performance, and various other aspects of the game, and we also want you to share constructive feedback on PlanetSide 2. How does the game look and feel? Is navigating through the menus intuitive and utilizing DualShock 4 in the best way? All players in the Closed Beta will have access to our special Beta forums, which will be the primary location for development interaction and feedback. We want the massive battles to make your heart pound and adrenaline pump, so share your thoughts with us.

PlanetSide 2

If you haven’t done so already, make sure you opt in by email for a chance to participate in the Closed Beta. You can sign up through our website. To ensure the most positive gameplay experience, we will invite a few thousand players into the Beta at the beginning, followed by waves of players throughout the Closed Beta period. Please note players will be invited in chronological order of when they signed up.

I’m sure there are a lot of questions about the Beta that I can’t answer in this blog post, so check out our FAQ at PlanetSide2.com.

With its massive battles and enormous continents, PlanetSide 2 is a one-of-kind gaming experience, and we are excited to finally bring the world’s largest MMOFPS to PS4 this month.

Signed up a while back. Can’t wait to play! I gave it a try at E3 and it was shaping up to be pretty comprehensive on the PS4. Hope it’s just as good as the PC version! :)

Finally, I’ve been waiting for this forever; like since it was announced that all new sony mmo’s would be on consoles as well. Can’t wait to get my hands on this beast. I mass mailed dozens of my friends with beta inf when it was submitted for approval.
Now I only need Everquest Next (omg or Landmark) and Soe will have all of my game time monopolized.

    That is exactly the type of testing feedback we are looking to get. Getting any problems worked out in the closed beta will be a huge benefit to the players that join us in the future open beta.

Hi, i sign Up for the Beta.

Question for the Developers. I´am form Germany, is this any Problem for the Beta Sign up ? Or has anybody around the World the Option to get chosen for the Beta ?

I´am really looking forward to Play Planetside 2 on my PS4.

I played Planetside 1 when i came out on the PC. I was really Mind Blowing Battles. I am looking forward to have that Experience on the PS4 with PS2.

Thank you have a happy new Year and Greetings from Germany

    We are working on our SCEE Beta submission. It will be slightly delayed but it is on its way. Once we have a confirmed date we will let our SCEE players know. I would still recommend signing up for the Beta via our webpage just to be sure.

This game was the tipping point in me going with the PS4 pre-order over the XB1. I hope to get in early in the beta and hope this becomes my new 600+ hour addiction.

Since this is a closed beta…does this means that an open beta will happen as well?…might just wait for it.

BTW I’ve been watching some Planetside 2 trailers and gameplays and the game looks nice,I’m eager to try it out myself and see if its really good.

Hopefully there is Keyboard and Mouse support for it. But I do look forward to seeing it on PS4 as I plan to purchase one just for this game, even if it’s really expensive here in my country to own one.

    No keyboard and mouse support for the PS4. We have been working on making it a great gameplay experience with the Dualshock 4. If you get a chance to check it out, send us some feedback. We are constantly doing playtests and tweaking the controls to make it intuitive for the controller.

I have been playing Planetside 2 for a little over a year and the game is one of the best first person shooters I have ever played and if you like big battles this game has it. I am looking forward to playing it on the PS4. Keep up the good work SOE.

I bought a PS4 mainly for Planetside 2 and I’m sure it will be worth the wait. I’m so glad they took the extra time and didn’t release it before it was ready. It’s going to be a great year for gaming! #PS2onPS4 FTW! (:

I’ve been curious to see if this game would work (well) on PS4… thousands of players, …I hope this game shows Destiny what a true online experience should be like. Destiny felt too disconnected (can’t even talk to people in the supposed “social” area called the tower, and couldn’t even talk to your own teammates in the “team” based competitive online mode unless you added everyone you played with to your fireteam. Lets hope this game has great online FEATURES and minimal lag – it looks good!

I bought the ps4 for this!!!! I am sure ill be one of the first one’s to get the invite (Hopefully), I signed up as the sign ups went live. I have never played PS2 but the amount of videos I have seen of this game on youtube and twitch is a little concerning. I know how I am going to spend my certs on each class without even owning the pc version. PS2 team, You made me wait a looooong time, and im soooo happy the wait is finally over!!!!!! Im sure you guys have done an awesome job in the translation of the PC version to the PS4.

Vanu Addict in the making.

Will we be able to “pre-load” Planetside 2 before the Beta starts?

How big will the file size be for Planetside 2 on PS4?

Will the new battle island map be in the Beta?

Will we be able to spend $$$ in the Beta?

Thank you for the response! (if any)
