Daybreak, formally called Sony Entertainment Online, first announced Planetside 2 for the PS4 in 2013. After a series of delays, the closed beta only took off this year. "We're excited to finally bring the game to PS4 so the console gaming community can experience what truly massive warfare is all about," said Andy Sites, director of development on PlanetSide 2, in a PlayStation Blog post.
The PS4 version of Planetside 2 will come with exclusive features, as well as a new map called Koltyr. Developers also said players can expect frequent updates after launch, with new items hitting the in-game marketplace in the future, more features, and holiday events. This is a free-to-play game, but if you're a believer of Planetside 2, the studio is giving players the option for a $14.99 a month subscription, giving subscribers increased experience, cert and resource gains; marketplace discounts' monthly drop of Battle Cash; and access to a monthly double XP event.
I've played my fair share of Planetside 2 and the grand scale of the game is still overwhelming to this day, and we are curious on how well they translate the experience to console when it goes live later in the month.
