PlanetSide 2 Launches on PS4 June 23rd

Hey everyone. After months of intense Beta testing, I’m excited to announce that PlanetSide 2 will be launching on PS4 June 23rd in North America!

Planetside 2

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. Massive communities with unwavering camaraderie band together in PlanetSide 2 as the game challenges the skill and grit of the most seasoned soldier through intense infantry, air, and ground vehicle gameplay. Victory requires teamwork and a quick trigger finger to survive the enormous battles.

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.

We’ve put a lot of effort into streamlining and improving the feature set so that PS4 players will have the ultimate massive-scale, FPS gaming experience. We’ve also incorporated some unique features that are currently exclusive to the PS4 version, which for example, include the new battle map, Koltyr. We will continue to further improve and enhance the gameplay experience after launch as well. In the weeks and months following the release on June 23rd, players can look forward to frequent game updates, which will include deeper features, holiday events and content, new in-game marketplace items, and much, much more.

On behalf of the PlanetSide 2 development team, we’d like to thank the tens of thousands of players that have taken part in the Closed Beta testing. Because of you, we’ve been able to make a ton of refinements to the game that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible without your valuable feedback.

We’re excited to finally bring the game to PS4 so the console gaming community can experience what truly massive warfare is all about!

We’ll see you on Auraxis!

  • Very nice =)

  • I was waiting for Planetside 2 all along and now its finally coming!So excited to play it,because i never played the beta before

  • When does planetside 2 get released for the UK?

  • I know that on pc there can be a massive ammount of player. How much players will the ps4 will be having?

  • Can anyone help me out I got my beta code but when I enter is into ps store it tells me that thisplaystation network card number has has already been used.

  • Will there be a data wipe for those who participated in beta? Or the character and stuff will not be deleted?

  • Hello developers of Planetside 2 ps4 edition, could someone tell me if you guys are planning a fix for game chrashes every 5 min. Me and my squad keep on having our games chrash before we raid something and it is very annoying. Please respond to this and tell me if you have a planned update coming for bug fixes.

  • The suffering of the wait is near to an end. LET THE BATTLE COMMENCE. TALLY HO, IN TO THE BREACH.

  • my apologies if this has been asked before, if we have already installed the beta do we need to re-install the game again. if so how big is the download. many thanks.

  • Oh Come ON!, You announce this now? less than 3 weeks till launch and i will have only just got elderscrolls online, lots of people playing destiny/HoW and witcher and im away that week, i wanted to be in it from the start with massive battles and loads of players. But now everythign is competing for peoples attention. I hope you get a good showing.

    for me its going to have to be something I’ll pick up later when ESO loses its charm, as ive already paid for it and want some value for money from it. least PS2 is free and its on ps store so i can pick up and play anytime i guess. maybe it’ll let any the bugs be resolved before i jump on it. if you had only left it a few months instead of competing with all these other games and announcing it at relatively short notice. I guess maybe you only see its competition as other Online FPS. So wanted a good timeline before Call of duty drops, but i think you will probably not get as many numbers as you could/should have.

  • YES. A game I can stick to and play this summer without paying a dime! (or 60$)

  • I freelance over th? internet and earn about 80-85$ an hour. I was without a job for 7 months but last month my paycheck with big fat bonus was $15000 just working on my computer from my home for 5-6 hours. Here’s what i have been doing…

  • I had an opportunity to play the second beta and it just blew my mind. It was a little difficult to get the controls b cause there was so much to learn but it was fun nonstop. It was really surprising how crisp the graphics were. Definitely thing this game will give COD and BF Hardline a run for their money.Wish you guys are prepared to have ultra mega servers lol. Thank you Andy and Daybreak

  • Beta Tester here, I can state that the game is fairly solid and has less issues compared to Battlefield in the recent years. I just hope that the ingame voice Coms will be fixed and working similar to those used in MAG (PS3) which appears to be the way it works also on the PC version.

    I wish them all the best on this project because there really is no game like this on console, infact not even on PC at this level. Planetside is a virtual Battlefield, with over 1000 players, divided into 3 factions on 1 massive map. Just 3 way battles alone is a fun concept, then add all those which can take part = EPIC BATTLES :)

    PS2 will be FREE TO PLAY and NOT PAY TO WIN, You don’t even need PS+ to play it online :)

    If you like FPS games, Free Roaming and Epic Battles then PS2 is for you. ITS FREE so you have no reason not to try it :) Keep in mind it can be played solo but the real experience is through team play.

  • Do you get anything special for being in Beta? Anything for PS Plus members? The only crash I notice is during big battles but able to connect every single time impressive compared to drop connection with another popular shooter game not naming any names but their company is huge and a year later they still have connection issues smh. So can’t really complain about crashes it is a Beta after all.

  • When is it release in EU server ???
    all good new but North America isn’t only ones want play the game

  • Thanks I Cant Wait :D

  • Will my PC characters transfer to the ps4 edition, or will I have to restart completely?

  • got the first beta code and couldn’t find the game to play it. If you guys send me another – do I download from PS store or online then merge my account somehow to ps4?

  • that certainly gives battlefield a run for it’s money

  • @andy sites would it be possible to get a few beta keys to do a youtube giveaway on my channel please?

  • do we have to re/down load the game, or will the Beta update?

  • WOOHOO! I have been beta testing for months too. Fun and kinda weird having the continents all to ourselves. More people yea!

  • On the 23th will it be available in holland?

  • game has still so many buggs and even so when u start the game ps4 goes in overdrive i hope they will fix alot before release.

  • I look forward to giving it a try. How long I stay will depend on the quality and personal appeal of the game.

  • And its the same in Europe ??

  • It’s about time. I’ve never gotten the beta key ever since last year. Now they are having it release this month, wow.

  • Will this be cross platform? Also will you be able to play with people on xbox. If so would it be Playstation vs xbox? If not you guys should do that, the battle of the systems.

  • Does this mean that Australia wont get to play Planetside 2? yet UK\EU and US do…..great way to limit your customers

  • anybody want to team up with me add me (TR)

  • Here are some answers to some questions.
    1. EU release date is also the 23/6
    2. Australia has it’s own official regional server. It wasnt active in beta but the PC version has it and they stated region lock to provide a better service with less lag issues.
    3. The EU server is in Holland NL – Near Amsterdam
    4. DEVS also stated officially on the beta forum that the INGAME VOICE CHAT has been fixed internally and will be patched for release date.
    5. IF YOU HAVE CRASH ISSUES IN THE BETA – DISABLE VCHAT FROM OPTION SETTINGS.

    I hope this helps some of you out.

  • Will we be able to use or transer our preexisting characters/purchases on the ps4 version? I have quite a bit sank into the PC version of which I don’t play much any more in waiting for the PS4 version to release. I am just hoping that all that has been spent on PC won’t go to waste if I play it on PS4 instead.

  • Can’t wait to play planetside I also my self played the computer game!!! best gun game ever created was planetside to me I was battle rank 25 command rank 5 Emerald server terrain republic lol (Red Team Go) haha can’t wait this games gonna be exciting to play on ps4 FINALLY RELEASING IT!!!! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I will Lol 8) Have an amazing day

  • Will beta players keep some of their items they have earned. I’ve been playing beta from almost the start (On a different account) , and I was devastated when my items were lost in the big update, so I’m wondering if we are going to keep our items when it is released.

  • I’m not buying it since I had to wait 1 year for a beta code

  • Oh my sweet battleship in the sky, yes. This game is the reason why I bought a computer, and is the reason why I was trying to repair it. Not anymore. At last, my favorite game on my favorite console. Will it have all the things PC has now at its launch, or will it be a few updates behind, or lack user-generated content?

  • Yes is coming now all we need is h1z1 ps4 now I’m going post plate side 2 videos soon captiankirk game if any wants to add me or want to be in videos sub to captiankirk games and add me

  • I live in nz would we be able to connect to na servers like on pc? Got fair amount of buds wanting to play

  • did planet side 2 fix the rate in which you get certification points because it was a bit slow

  • FINALLY!!!

  • Will our PC profiles be playable on the PS4? I would hate to have to re-purchase every weapon I unlocked with money just to have to do it again.

  • Hi, Been on BETA for 6 weeks. FAB game graphics spectacular, always play as much as possible. As the game never ends you just battle for supremacy on that map, once your faction takes control (Red, Blue or Purple) you rule that Area and then you either defend or move to next map. Maps are MASSIVE distance frame is very good a few little glitches some time but the game play a whole is a must for any FPS. My only negative is that you cannot destroy any buildings. DB

  • Is the graphics updated to the PS4 cause most games on the ps3 have better graphics than the PS2 beta. Just wondering. Good game but feels like an old ps2 game. lol

  • Hooray!! I can’t wait for this. I just hope the player base is a lot larger, because I haven’t seen many people playing the beta. Also, why are there only US and EU servers? It makes it quite hard to play in Australia, because lag and all.

  • What is the planned release date in Aus?

  • beta code please :(

  • Loved the closed beta, didn’t get too play that much (Australian player) can’t wait for the open beta

  • Wow, get a beta key and it doesn’t even work. I’m afraid Starwars looks better, I’d rather wait for that then end up getting another disappointment like Destiny. If you can’t even get a working beta key out to users I’m afraid of how good the final result of your game is going to be . . .
