The timing couldnt be better although there is still a bit of a wait before the actual beta.

We heard you might want access to one of gaming’s most exciting PC exclusives, so we went ahead and sorted that out for you. Issue #225 of PC Gamer US features PlanetSide 2—a veritable Manhattan Project of ambitious massively-multiplayer FPS design being tackled by the same studio that created EverQuest. Each physical issue of the magazine (subscriber copies and newsstand copies) includes a unique beta key for PlanetSide 2 that can be redeemed on the game’s website. Woo!

if you are/were a PlanetSide player you get a beta invite, be sure your station acct email is accurate

I reckon if they are handing them out on a mag cover then they will be available through a lot of places closer to release. Fuckin want one though, so I can run over Rik non stop with a magmower.

You will have to role Vanu if you want to do that.
I am pretty sure that vehicle hacking was left out the last time I looked.

It wont take long to see if this game is a good as we hope.
It cant afford to be shit and alienate its PS1 past players.

Like most games GP if there are people playing it that you know and you get to work together its usually enjoyable.
PS1 needed team work and even work between the different guilds but you could also jump on alone and hook into a big battle and time would fly.

Apparently if you can post over on the Planetside forums http://forums.station.sony.com/ps/forums/list.m you can still log in and play PS1.

DLing installer now to test this bug.


...Confirmed it works, looks like I have to do basic training again even tho I'm BR20 CR5.
Think it goes up to BR25 now.
And I lol'd at the lasher and other items in my locker still.
Managed to credit for all of the years I had not played with their yearly Terms of Service awards.

I'll be having a proper look when I get back home (1 week).
Will need to do all the training not to just get recertified in it again but to remember how the hell it all worked!
Not sure what thats about but I couldnt fire any of the weapons so I figure maybe because the servers merged I need to do basic training again.
When I jumped on the other day there was a few fights happening, nothing massive.

Disappointed that there are no need for tank wives in PS2.

I see half a dozen ppl have been in PS1 recently.
I dunno about you guys but I might as well start a new character, I have nfi what I am doing.
Some dude screaming at me to jump in his BFR and help and there's me with all my certification points reset, cant fire a gun.
So I head back to sanc to rectify that, in a hurry, and that was the next mistake.
Its a massive playing field when there are very few people around.

Would love to play the PS2 beta, imo PS1's beta was perhaps the best beta ive ever played it was so much fun. It must have been an open beta though? because fuck there were alot of us tribers in it.
