PS4 PlanetSide 2 Will Not Implement Map Or Player Limits
Sony Online Entertainment are still recovering from the massive popularity surge for their free MMOFPS game, PlanetSide 2, but there’s some exciting news for Playstation 4 fans. The game is widely considered to be the best looking free FPS title on the PC but with the obvious difference in price between a top range PC and the Playstation 4, will the next-generation console be able to support it?
PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matt Higby:
“Our plan right now is to basically take the PC game with maximum settings and have that be running on the PS4. So there won’t be any limitations in terms of number of players, there won’t be any limitations on the maps – so you aren’t going to get any dumbed down maps or anything like that. The biggest difference that you’ll see is going to be interface elements they’ll be customized to work better with a console controller and other tweaks that make things work on a console game. But there won’t be any core gameplay mechanic changes that make PlanetSide what it is. You’ll still have thousands of players per continents, all the vehicles and really deep character progression – all that stuff is going to remain intact.”
Not only will the PS4 version of PlanetSide 2 feature the same graphics as the PC version but the Creative Director also confirmed that players will not experience pointless restrictions, most notably no changes to map size or player count. Sony Online Entertainment are targeting the same release window as the Playstation 4 so don’t waste any time getting into the battle for Auraxis.
