Currently in closed beta, the free to play game will launch with three continents, the two which are now available in the closed beta: Indar and Esamir and a new, third continent called Amerish (below), which is described as dark and swamp-infested. Other continents are planned to be released after launch.“We are thrilled to have reached a point where we can set an official release date for PlanetSide 2. External beta has been a fantastic learning experience, one where we have been constantly iterating and incorporating player feedback, tweaking and refining features to ensure an explosive, quality game at launch,” said Matt Higby, Creative Director of PlanetSide 2.
“External beta has been an amazing way to directly connect with the player community on both an individual and large-scale basis and has further proven that we truly offer gameplay for every type of player. I’ve participated in battles against huge outfits that employ exhaustive base capture strategies, and I’ve marveled at the skill of some of our most adept combat pilots. It is definitely the most unique gaming experience SOE has ever created.”
Those interested in signing up for the closed beta of PlanetSide 2 can still sign up at www.PlanetSide2.com before the game officially launches on 20th November.
