Play PlanetSide for free

For a whole year.

The PlanetSide development team is planning to launch a "Fodder Program" in mid February that'll allow players to create a new account and play for free for a whole year.

Access to the massively multiplayer FPS will be limited in terms of BattleRank and CommandRank. "Essentially, new players will be able to have access to any part of the game but they will be limited on the diversity of their arsenal," said developer Enrico Pallazzo in a recent forum post outlining various new additions to the game.

Speaking of which, newcomers should have an easier time of starting out thanks to a new player training facility, added, "in hopes of getting new players/characters into battle within a couple minutes of entering the game at the same time teaching them how to play".

The Fodder Program should kick off on February 14th, the developer estimates. We'll let you know if that changes.
