Sony would like to remind you PlanetSide 2 is still coming to PS4


At some point!
Jun 04
 
#PS2onPS4 is a confusing hashtag. PlanetSide 2 is no longer coming to PS4 this month, but it'll still show up sometime this year. And if you can get some friends to play, it's pretty good fun, what with the large scale battles unfolding in front of you.

Preview: PlanetSide 2 brings depth to match the scale


Sep 04

Truly, the scope is impressive: the size of the maps are mind boggling and 2,000 players fighting at once is a sight to behold. As great as scale can be for a game like this, what caught my eye most was the exhaustive depth Sony Online is bringing with the moment-to-moment gameplay.




gamescom: PlanetSide 2 blew my mind


Aug 19
