'PlanetSide 2' Coming To PS4 - Trailer

by Rainier on June 5, 2013 @ 5:25 p.m. PDT

PlanetSide 2 takes all the groundbreaking features from the original game – massive multiplayer battles, distinctive empires to rally around, and enormous continents to support intense ground and air combat – and adds features that modern gamers have come to expect out of the FPS and MMO genres.

Across the continents of Auraxis, thousands of players will come together in enormous battles to win control of territory and resources for their empire. With an extensive skill tree and a free-form class-based system, players will be able to customize their soldier, weapons and vehicles to match their play-style, or the needs of their squad, outfit or empire. Battles can last for days or weeks, so players will need to build real alliances and combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With air, ground and seaborne combat, the battles are more intense than ever. 

Various character, vehicle and artillery customization features will be available to players constructing the perfect fighter for their favorite of the three empires: The Terran Republic (the conservative, authoritative nation aiming to reunite the clashing factions), The New Conglomerate (a liberated faction fighting to remaining free) or The Vanu Sovereignty (technophiles seeking to develop and exploit alien technology). Also, an in-depth and adaptive class system – with ranks, unlockable traits and skill sets – will give players complete control over their online warrior.

"Since the launch of the original EverQuest, we have pioneered major shifts in the development of MMOs and videogames as a whole, and now we're bringing our titles to the forefront of next-gen gaming," said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment. "Players are evolving and want a variety of ways to access and play games. Our goal is to deliver epic gaming experiences that players crave while harnessing the awesome power and technology of this incredible new platform. We are thrilled to bring two of our most popular free-to-play games to PS4."

"DCUO was the first MMO available for PS3, and its thriving community is proof that we can create an exciting and robust console experience for players," said Laura Naviaux, Senior Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Sony Online Entertainment. "Players have been asking for PlanetSide 2 to be playable on consoles, and PS4 is the ideal platform to showcase the game's beauty, depth and frenetic open world combat."

PlanetSide 2 will be available for PS4 as free-to-play titles with optional in-game purchases via digital download later this year.
