Planetside Arena hasn’t completely fell off the radar, after all.
Planetside Arena, unveiled last year as a match-based take on the sci-fi shooter’s formula, has changed its release date yet again.
The game is now coming September 19, launching in Steam Early Access. Early access wasn’t mentioned as part of the initial reveal, and a few other details have changed since then as well.
At launch, Planetside Arena will feature only two modes, each with support for 300-player matches. Squads mode, which allows for 12 players per squad, and Teams mode, with a limit of only three players per team. Assault, Engineer, and Medic will also be available at launch, alongside an assortment of vehicles.
Notably, the 500-player Massive Clash game mode won’t be there at launch, though the intention is for it to arrive down the line alongside new classes, weapons and vehicles.
Daybreak also revealed a content roadmap for what’s to come. Later this year, the game will get solo and Sunderdome game modes, new weapons, suit mods, and kick off a holiday event.
Planetside Arena is a premium game, available in $20 and $50 editions.
