Hey everyone. After months of intense Beta testing, I’m excited to announce that PlanetSide 2 will be launching on PS4 June 23rd in North America!

Planetside 2

For those of you unfamiliar with the game, you’re in for a wild ride! PlanetSide 2 is a revolutionary, massive scale, first-person shooter where soldiers battle as one in strategic, targeted missions against enemy Empires in an all-out planetary war. Massive communities with unwavering camaraderie band together in PlanetSide 2 as the game challenges the skill and grit of the most seasoned soldier through intense infantry, air, and ground vehicle gameplay. Victory requires teamwork and a quick trigger finger to survive the enormous battles.

To give you an idea of just how massive our battles really are in PlanetSide 2, we recently set a Guinness World Record for the Most Players Online in a Single FPS Battle, with 1,158 players in a single fight! The game is synonymous with large-scale warfare and it’s truly an experience you have to see to believe. Plus, as a free-to-play game, all players can jump into the game’s massive battles for free — no PlayStation Plus Membership required.

We’ve put a lot of effort into streamlining and improving the feature set so that PS4 players will have the ultimate massive-scale, FPS gaming experience. We’ve also incorporated some unique features that are currently exclusive to the PS4 version, which for example, include the new battle map, Koltyr. We will continue to further improve and enhance the gameplay experience after launch as well. In the weeks and months following the release on June 23rd, players can look forward to frequent game updates, which will include deeper features, holiday events and content, new in-game marketplace items, and much, much more.

On behalf of the PlanetSide 2 development team, we’d like to thank the tens of thousands of players that have taken part in the Closed Beta testing. Because of you, we’ve been able to make a ton of refinements to the game that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible without your valuable feedback.

Planetside 2

We’re excited to finally bring the game to PS4 so the console gaming community can experience what truly massive warfare is all about!

We’ll see you on Auraxis!

Yaasss, I played on PC and loved it but I’m a console gamer at heart.

Can’t wait!

I love this game on PC, but I’m a primarily a console gamer. So this has me very excited!

+ Crazy-Maisy on June 3rd, 2015 at 9:17 am said:

Finally! I have dabbled with it on PC since it was announced for PS4, but I’m not a PC gamer except for this or that puzzle strategy sort of game.

Planetside 2 is my idea of what a good game can be, and I hope it really lives up to that ideal on PS4!

I love the game. Been testing the beta for a few months. Will it have trophies?

    Yep, we have trophies. We could not activate them during the beta, so they will become available at launch.

FINALLY! I’ve been waiting a long time for this. I’m glad that it’s coming, though I wish it was released with more of a *bang* so that it would get the attention that it deserves.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all online!

Can’t wait to try it out!! Also can #3 be banned from commenting or something. All I have seen from him Is advertising for kinda funny. If I wanted to watch it I would, but I don’t.

Finally! I’m worried it’s a bit too late though. At least for me. BF4 + DLC has been on sale so many times recently. I certainly picked it up and play every so often. And then there is that game in my life called Destiny. It certainly has me hooked like a mom playing Candy Crush.

I am excited to finally try Planetside 2 though. Any word on how big the download is. My HDD is rather full.

It’s about time since I never did get the chance to beta test the game after signing up for it. I didn’t expect to play this well after E3 has come & gone.I guess better late than never.

+ MapleStory on June 3rd, 2015 at 10:30 am said:

Great to see that it’s finally releasing to the public! I’ve been in the closed beta for the past couple months and the game felt a bit overwhelming at first but has an absolutely ridiculous amount of depth once you put a bit of time in. It’s great that the game is free-to-play but I really hope it isn’t pay-to-win.

Yes! I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile! I played Planetside 2 on PC and loved it, but then my computer crashed and I haven’t been able to bring myself to replace it. I’d rather play Planetside 2 on PS4 anyway, so I’m super excited to have it releasing so soon!

..are there going to be purchasable content upon release day?

+ IDazzlerazzle on June 3rd, 2015 at 4:54 pm said:

Basically they are gonna launch beta with micro-transactions. Why they are doing it ? Well the internal beta is quite empty for some time now, most of the people quit due to the fact it’s loaded with glitches, crappy framerate and ****load of input lag that never got taken care of…

I love Planetside 2, you guys are amazing, this game is amazing,( I would say best of the 21st century), and I hope you developers make millions of dollars in $. Though I hope that there will be a playstation plus exclusive add on for this. Nothing big, just something like a starter in currency or whatever.
