Planetside 2 beta for the PS4 is now expected to arrive in mid-January 2015. The news comes from Sony Online Entertainment President John Smedley, who confirmed via Twitter that the first-person MMO shooter was “approved in its first pass” by the publisher and will go live during either the week of January 13 or January 20. The developer will know for sure as it enters the new year.
In November, Creative Director Matt Higby said the developer planned to launch Planetside 2’s PS4 beta by the end of this year. The developer added that its goal is “to have our launch on the PS4 feel like a great PS4 native console game. Not just a PC port.” SOE is hoping to reach a resolution and framerate of 1080p and 60 frames per second on the system, though if the developer opts for 30 fps “it’ll be because we want to maintain a completely solid 30 fps. But that’s the optimization we’re working on right now.”
