Planetside 2 beta will hit PS4 this year


Sony Online Entertainment says that a Planetside 2 beta will still hit PS4 in 2014, in beta form at least.

Creative director Matt Higby, speaking to Eurogamer said that development has taken time because the designers want PlanetSide 2 on PS4 to feel like a "full-on console experience" and not just a port of the PC original.



"As much as it sounds like we're blowing smoke, we're working hard to release a game that feels like a full-on console experience and not just like a port.

"So it's taken us quite a long time to re-jigger our user interface and our controls. There's a lot that needs to get done.

"Our goal is at the end of the day is to have our launch on the PS4 feel like a great PS4 native console game. Not just a PC port. So it's taking a while."

Higby said the PS4 version compares "very favourable" with the PC version, which is certainly good news.

"From a graphical fidelity perspective, I think people will be very impressed with what they see on the PS4. That's always one of those things people are sceptical about. I see every time we post an article like this I always get called out: 'haha, it's bullshit that he's saying it's going to look as good.' It really does."

So the PS4 version is still on track and could be quite an important title for both PS4 and SOE.

You are best giving it a go yourself when it releases since it is F2P. It can be tough to get into at first but if you like grand scale battles then you will love this
