PlanetSide 2 Heading to Steam - Beta Begins Today

Category: Gaming
Posted: 06:33PM

Today brings two good pieces of news for PlanetSide 2 fans. The first is the beta is now open with invites pouring out, and the second is that PlanetSide 2 will appear on Steam. Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley tweeted the other day to confirm that PlanetSide 2 will be on Steam, which will surely make plenty of people happy. We will still need a Station account to play, but at least everyone will have access to their Steam friends and in-game overlay while fighting battles. Smedley went on to say that SOE loves Steam and is happy to work with Valve, but will defer to the latter if PlanetSide 2 will add any hats for Team Fortress 2.

The other news concerns the beta, which has the first wave of invites going out today. Current PlanetSide 1 subscribers and All Access members are in that first wave, with former subscribers in the next. People with Priority Access will go in later and then finally opt-in entrants will be chosen. The invites will be sent out over the next two to three weeks, so do not worry if yours has not arrived yet. The PlanetSide 2 is under a non-disclosure agreement, so just keep all discussions to the game's beta forum if you get invited.
