At long last, the PlanetSide 2 beta is finally making it's way to the PlayStation 4. Announced before the console was even released, PlanetSide 2 is a free to play FPS sci-fi shooter that features huge open world battles between three different player factions.
Each faction must work together to call out strategies in an attempt to take control of different areas of territory within the open world. As a player works towards capturing territory and defending faction outposts, experiences and credits will be rewarded.
Experience will go towards unlocking new items, whilst credits can be used to purchase the items. As you can imagine, there is a third currency that players can earn by spending real money on the game.
The in-game currency can be used to fast track players towards better equipment, but everything, besides cosmetic items, can be earned by simply playing the game. It does, however, take quite a long time to accumulate enough credits and experience to purchase some of the higher tiered items.
The closed beta for PlanetSide 2 on the PlayStation 4 will launch on the 20th of January, although it will be restricted to a few thousand players to start, and only those who previously signed up for beta access will be given a key.
Once the closed beta has finished, the PS4 version of PlanetSide 2 will then go back into development, before presumably opening up to another closed or open beta later on in the year.
