Planetside 2 release date before December 31st this year; instant paid-for beta access for all from todayPlanetside 2 will launch “on or before December 31st, 2012" say SOE. The new comes not emblazoned across the sky of the game's beta as it should be, but rather in the small print of a new members package the developer has just announced - Alpha Squad - with which it’s now possible to pay your way into Planetside 2 beta.

SOE studio head John Smedley says that while PS2 is unfinished, it is “the ONLY true MMOFPS outside of the original Planetside. All others are posers.”SOE have lifted the NDA on Planetside 2’s external beta today, ungagging players, letting them talk openly about their wounds. Amid the babble about buggies and base assaults, SOE head John Smedley has clambered atop the tree stump of oratory that is Twitter to set the record straight about both the state of the beta and the nature of the game itself.

“People keep asking what lifting the NDA means - it means talk about the game openly. Love it. Hate it. Stream it. Whatever you want. But I want to be super specific about some stuff - first off this game is not finished."

Planetside 2 will be on Steam

Comment
Planetside 2 will be on SteamAs much as it might be tempting to lament the stranglehold that Steam has on PC gaming, it’s also for a few very good reasons; the community aspects, and the auto-patching are just a few, and when a highly anticipated MMO comes along, everyone who uses Steam is going to add it to their library anyway. Either way, the news that Planetside 2 is definitely coming to Steam, according to SOE President John Smedley, can only be a good thing.

Planetside 2 Beta imminent

Comment
Planetside 2 Beta imminentUpdate: The President of SOE, John Smedley, has tweeted that the Planetside Beta is going to be starting on Monday at 2pm, if everything goes to plan. That's sooner than sooner than soon. That's only a weekend away! It's time to start dusting off those bespoke driving gloves that make piloting a Galaxy such a joy. And make sure your hands still fit in them.

The Planetside 2 Beta, that holy grail of shooty bangs with many men on three different sides, is looking like it’s right around the corner, just a few formalities away from becoming a reality. John Smedley, the President of Sony Online Entertainment, stated that “Some bug to fix but tech test will begin in the next 2 days followed by beta (assuming all goes ok)." Which means that, Vanu willing, we’re going to be playing Planetside 2 Beta in some form or another in the next month or two.
