The game is reported moving out of Beta testing and it will be released on PlayStation 4 by the end of this month.
The highly anticipated free- to-play massive online shooter videogame has already broken the Guinness Book of World Record for having the maximum number of online players engaged in a single battle.
The first person shooter sees players battle it out on an enormous scale, with aerial and vehicular combat included.
Citing the official PlayStation Blog, emerging reports suggest that the PS4 title will have exclusive content that will be different from the PC version of the shooter. For instance, it will have a different battle map.
The company in a blog post has stated, “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.”
The company added that a lot of effort had been put by it in to streamlining and enhancing the feature set so that PS4 gamers could enjoy the ultimate massive scale, viz. FPS gaming experience. Some unique features have been added to the new game that would be exclusively available to the PS4version.
Andy Sites, Planetside 2’s Director of Development said, “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.”
“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.”
