Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: PlanetSide
Sony Online has announced that they will be bringing two of their biggest MMOs to the PS4, DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2. As with the other versions, both will be free-to-play with optional in-game purchases. For those keeping count, that brings the total number of free-to-play MMOs on the PS4 up to three: DCUO, Dust 514, and PlanetSide 2.
The first episode of the PlanetSide 2 Command Center Developer video series has been released, with Creative Director Matt Higby and Senior Art Director Tramell Isaac covering a wide range of topics for the upcoming MMOFPS. Items discussed include faction uniforms, SOE Live and other upcoming events, fan art, and the approaching beta.
PlanetSide, one of the first massively multiplayer online first-person shooters, has been chugging along for over eight years now. While that’s impressive, fans have been itching for something more substantial than the random update for quite some time. Today, Sony announced that they are planning to deliver just that with PlanetSide 2. Auraxis will continue to host the war between the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, and Vanu Sovereignty in their struggle for the planet’s remaining resources. Players will get to unlock traits and skill sets in a “free-form class-based” system as they level, as well as gain access to new squad options and vehicles. Days’ long battles will return as well, with hundreds of troops battling it out in the air, on the ground, and at sea.
