You don’t need PS Plus to play PlanetSide 2 on PS4

Friday, 6th June 2014 14:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony has confirmed its sci-fi MMO PlanetSide 2 will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription to play online via PlayStation 4.

The game will be present at E3 next week where attendees can get hands-on time with the title. The E3 trailer for the PS4 version is above, enjoy.

It will also be present during MLG Anaheim June 20-22.

“One of the best things about working on a game like PlanetSide 2 is that it’s a living, evolving game that’s constantly being updated and improved upon,” creative director Matt Higby said on the PS Blog. “In addition to work being done for PS4, the team is working on a lot of content and game systems enhancements to the live game.

“Some of the biggest features we’re excited to deliver in the next few months are: Hossin, our fourth full 64sqkm continent, an advanced achievement system called Directives, player-driven continent conquest/locking, and expansions to our game’s Outfits systems.”

These new features will be implemented on both the PC and PS4 versions of the game, and new features and content will continually be added to the game “for years to come” he said.

PlanetSide 2 will be a free-to-play title when it launches on PS4.

    ehm…No PS+ needed for F2P titles is something we knew from Day1.
    Not sure why it should be different here.

    @Alkanida Because apparently there was confusion for some folks, otherwise they wouldn’t have re-confirmed it. Ergo, it’s news, etc.

    I guess it could be confusing to people new to the PS4 fold. It was announced at the reveal that F2P games and sub based MMOs wouldn’t require a PS Plus account to play them.
    If this information isn’t freely available to those who don’t read Ts and Cs I can see that people would want it clarified.

    For those of us who keep up with the news it would be old.
