Planetside 2 Beta (Hopefully) Imminent


The MMOFPS beta depends on the outcome of a tech test.

It’s been almost exactly a year since our first official look at Sony Online Entertainment’s upcoming MMOFPS, though we’ve seen it a few times since then. If all goes according to plan, regular gamers might be able to jump into the battle soon as part of the game’s beta test.

The game still had “[some] bugs to fix,” wrote SOE’s John Smedley wrote on his Twitter account, “but tech test will begin in the next 2 days followed by beta ( assuming all goes ok).”

There’s no word on how long the tech test will last, or what exactly the particular timeline is for beginning the beta after the test hopefully succeeds. But for Planetside aficionados or MMO fans wanting something other than the standard RPG, this should be a welcome piece of news.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Planetside MMOFPS franchise, take a trip to the past with The Escapist‘s triumphant victory over the dogs at BoingBoing and RPS.
