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.”
