PlanetSide 2 PlayStation 4 Launch Day Arrives

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in guides

 

Daybreak Games today welcomed thousands of eager combatants to the online world of Auraxis as the critically acclaimed free-to-play MMOFPS game, PlanetSide 2, opened its doors to an entirely new audience on the PlayStation 4. Arguably the most exciting free-to-play release under the PlayStation 4, PlanetSide 2 is now available to download entirely free of charge in both North America and Europe on the PSN store.

More excitingly the entire PlanetSide 2 experience is free. I said that right? And I mean in every sense of the word. There is not requirement surrounding a PlayStation Plus account, making PlanetSide 2 one of the only online PS4 titles to be available without the monthly subscription. It’s also the only PS4 game to offer battles on such a massive level, with huge simultaneous battles taking place across multiple areas.

There is however an optional subscription package available, providing membership for $14.99 a month for an enhanced experience including monthly Battle Cash allowance, increased experience, certification and resource gain, premium item discounts and exclusive promotional events.

“The original PlanetSide was the first MMOFPS, PlanetSide 2 set a new standard for shooters when it launched on the PC in 2012, and now the massive battles are unmatched on the console. The game is synonymous with large-scale warfare and there’s just no comparison. PlanetSide 2 fosters a unique kind of unwavering camaraderie among players, so we’re excited to see how our community grows on the PlayStation 4.”

The official release date for the first large-scale expansion to the revived Final Fantasy XIV project is June 23rd but one incentive for pre-ordering the expansion was the opportunity to explore its myriad of new features prior to this date, giving access to players for an additional 4 day period.

The official Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn website has been updated with a long list of requirements that players must meet before they’re able to get started in the Heavensward head start program. Additional details on the specific requirements can be found here. The head start event began today, Friday June 19th, at 2AM PDT.

The final requirement, should you have the correct platform and pre-order package, will be to ensure you have already completed the main story quest line that culminates in the “Before the Dawn” quest that arrived with patch 2.55.
