Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announced that the Closed Beta begins today in the United States for PlanetSide 2, the critically-acclaimed, free-to-play massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS), through the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system.
“PlanetSide 2 is defined by its massive size and strong camaraderie amongst players, making it an exceptional fit for the PlayStation 4’s powerful hardware and social community,” said Clint Worley, Executive Producer, PlanetSide 2. “We didn’t just create a port — we created a full console first-person shooter experience. The Closed Beta allows us to gain invaluable player feedback, ensuring a heart-pounding, action-packed massive experience at launch.”
As the only PlayStation 4 game that brings massive communities of players together to fight simultaneously across enormous battles, PlanetSide 2 offers a truly massive world combat conflict. Players can still register for the Closed Beta, which begins today with a few thousand initial invites followed by a steady increase throughout the Beta period. Players will be invited to Beta chronologically and can opt in by email for a chance to participate in Closed Beta via the PlanetSide 2 website.
The Beta period for PlanetSide 2 on PlayStation 4 will enable SOE to test servers, performance and various other aspects of the game. Players in Beta are fully encouraged to offer constructive feedback through community forums and official PlanetSide 2 social channels.
PlanetSide 2 Closed Beta is now available for the PlayStation 4 in the United States, though the Beta will expand to future countries and territories in the near future. A final game launch is slated for later this year.
