Planetside 2, the new MMOFPS from Sony Online Entertainment, is about to enter beta. Like imminently.
If I’m honest (and I always am), I can’t remember a beta that more people have been more excited for. I know I’m chomping at the bit to get in there and shoot some dirty TR scumbags in the face!
So here’s what we know. The tech test has been going on for several days and according to John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment, they will be sending some more tech test invites out tomorrow (That would be Wednesday, the 25th of July, 2012, for those of you who can’t manage to read a publishing date).
After the tech test comes the official start of the beta which, according to a tweet sent out by John Smedly this afternoon, could drop as soon as Monday of next week.
So, yeah…there you have it. If you’ve been waiting patiently for the Planetside 2 beta to start, you may not have much longer. This thing could kick off in as little as 6 days and you still have a chance to get an invitation to the tech test, on the off chance that you have hardware that matches their needs.
And just in time, too, since I am installing a new liquid cooling system in my gaming rig tomorrow. Sexy-town, here I come!
