PlayStation Starts Signup for Planetside 2 Beta
Sony Online Entertainment has launched registration for the Planetside 2 PlayStation 4 beta. The game was originally only for desktop, but SOE announced last year that a PlayStation 4 version was in development.
Planetside 2 is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS), where players fight for one of three factions in an effort to control massive maps: the factions are the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, and Vanu Sovereignty. Players can also choose between six different classes to play as: light assault, heavy assault, combat medic, engineer, infiltrator, and MAX (Mechanical Assault Exosuit).
According to the website for the beta of the PlayStation 4 version, there is not a set date for when the beta will start, only a vague "coming soon." SOE intended for the actual game to release before the end of this year. However, it looks more like the beta will launch early next year, and then the game will launch later in 2015.
