Sony is accepting applications for the PlanetSide 2 beta.

You need a SOE Station account to put your name down at the revamped PlanetSide 2 website.

"Next year is going to be HUGE for Planetside 2," creative director Matthew Higby said. "We have a lot of seriously exciting stuff planned and hope you'll join us for the ride."

PlanetSide 2, once known as PlanetSide Next, is a massively multiplayer first-person sci-fi shooter sequel.

There's an online persistent world, diverse combat roles and deep skill trees. Several classic roles from PlanetSide return. The three factions you can choose from are the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate and Vanu Sovereignty.
