After what seems like forever, we’ve finally received word that Sony Online Entertainment’s premier online action MMO, Planetside 2, will release on November 20th 2012. The game has undergone many changes, delays and betas since its announcement so many years ago, since shifting to being a free to play title, but gamers will finally be getting a taste of full scale war.
Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley sounded extremely confident about the game’s success. “PlanetSide 2 is without a doubt the next great MMOFPS and I believe it heralds the next phase and future of the gaming industry. External beta participants have experienced first-hand the sweeping implications that PlanetSide 2’s unrelenting action gameplay and large-scale mixed infantry, air, and ground vehicle combat have had on the advancement of the FPS genre.
“By providing an enormous magnitude of multiplayer action gameplay and features, we are fostering a community of passionate, engaged players and delivering an experience they have never before encountered, but always envisioned, in an online shooter: massive, player-driven combat warfare on unparalleled thousand player battlefields.”
