One month to go.
Those of you who were wondering what happened to the PPlayStation4 version of Planetside 2 can now rest in the fact that Sony has at least set a date for the beta release in 2014. Sony has been relatively quiet about it for some time now, and they suddenly hit us with the news that the beta will release this year itself. Not that we are complaining or anything.
Creative director Matt Higby told Eurogamer, that the beta for the game will commence in December 2014, and fans should look forward to more details that will be unveiled in December’s PlayStation Experience. Interestingly enough the PlayStation 4 version was announced in June 2013 and the reason it has take so long to develop, because the developers wanted the game to be a “full-on console experience” and not just another port of the PC.
In terms of graphics and visuals, Higby stated that the PS4 version compares “very favourable” with the PC version. He went on to say that the PS4 version uses the ultra textures, full particle effects, shadows and lighting from the PC version. While there is a lot progress made on Planetside 2 frame rate, you can be sure that there will be no cross platform play between PC and PS4.
