Sony Online Entertainment have just revealed that their critically acclaimed, award winning MMOFPS, PlanetSide 2, will be heading to the next-generation Playstation 4. I have never hidden my opinion of PlanetSide 2 and anyone that knows me is well aware I consider it to be the best online FPS game ever released. This exciting new announcement means I’ll finally have the opportunity to play alongside my anti-PC buddies.
“Since the launch of the original EverQuest, we have pioneered major shifts in the development of MMOs and videogames as a whole, and now we’re bringing our titles to the forefront of next-gen gaming,” said John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment. “Players are evolving and want a variety of ways to access and play games. Our goal is to deliver epic gaming experiences that players crave while harnessing the awesome power and technology of this incredible new platform. We are thrilled to bring one of our most popular free-to-play games to PS4.”
The game will be available as a free-to-play title with the additional option of purchasing in-game items and boosts. A typical micro-transaction feature that us PC gamers are well used to.
How hyped are you guys? Do you consider it a bit pointless as it’s already available on the PC or will it help bridge the gap between our console comrades?
