Yep, it’s “official”. The Planetside 2 beta is set to begin on the sixth of August at around 2pm Pacific Standard Time…just in time for me to not go crazy and start running naked through the streets with a half-plucked chicken gorilla taped to my head.
This is per a tweet which was sent out earlier today by John Smedley and I’m only now getting around to writing about. We know that the beta was delayed due to being .001% less awesome than they wanted it to be and it looks like the folks over at Sony Online Entertainment have been hard at work for the last week making sure we get an incredible beta experience.
That’s fine by me.
According to John Smedley, the crew will be at it all weekend (if they need pizza or energy drinks, let us know, John…We’ll contribute to the “get it done fund”) and aren’t going to rest until they’re ready to launch the beta which seems to have the whole world holding its breath.
And I mean that. I said it before and I’ll say it again: I’ve never seen so many people so amped up for a beta…ever…and I’ve seen a lot of betas. And never you fear because we here at FEZ will be making notes while we’re kicking ass and taking names so as soon as the information embargos and NDAs are lifted, we’ll be hammering out all the good stuff you want to see.
Is it Monday yet?
