Daybreak Game Company announced yesterday that their free to play MMOFPS PlanetSide 2 is now available for free on PS4 in North America and Europe. While free to play, the game does have in-game purchases, but a PS Plus subscription is not required. For $14.99 per month you can purchase a membership to get a monthly Battle Cash grant; increased experience, certifications and resource gains; discounts in the marketplace; exclusive promotions; access to a monthly double experience weekend event and priority log-in queue access.
PlanetSide 2 has been developed by the same company behind EverQuest, DC Universe Online, and the upcoming H1Z1. PlanetSide 2 originally launched on the PC in 2012 and set a Guinness World Record for Most Players Online when over 1,158 players simultaneously logged in for a single battle. More info about PlanetSide 2 can be found on the official site, or check out their YouTube page for tons of gameplay and tutorials. Unfortunately most of the videos at the YouTube link are pretty PC specific, but The Daybreak Company is promising some videos for the PS4 soon. Below is the trailer spot for the PS4 that was also released yesterday.
