Sony Online Entertainment announced that PlanetSide 2 has launched in North America and Europe. The MMOFPS is playable for free, with Premium Memberships available for $9.99 a month that include scalable gains for resources, XP and passive cert points.
“PlanetSide 2 sets the new standard for shooters,” said John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment. “With thousands of players fighting simultaneously across several beautiful, massive continents, the size and intensity of PlanetSide 2 has no equal. You’ve never played anything like it.”
Players can also purchase additional in-game content with the $15.00 PlanetSide 2 game card sold exclusively at participating GameStop retail locations. In addition to the choice of 1500 Station Cash or 30 days of Membership time, the new game card will grant an exclusive PlanetSide 2 virtual item, the NS11 Rifle.
