Sony shows off fancy new PlanetSide 2 CGI trailer as beta nears

PlanetSide veterans get priority.

Sony Online Entertainment has released a shiny new CGI trailer for MMOFPS PlanetSide 2.

It follows the journey of a soldier who battles on Auraxis to fulfil his mission. He's got some skills, that bloke.

SOE is after beta registrants for the game. The first invited will be PlanetSide 1 players who are encouraged to update their Station Account with their most recent email address. SOE boss John Smedley took to Twitter to explain further.


"There are going to be multiple phases of the beta. Simply put we are adding more people in different waves simply due to capacity.

"Every single PS1 player who has ever subscribed to the game will have their Station Account activated at some point during the beta beginning with people who actively are subscribers. Again though we can only let in so many people during each phase so invitations are by necessity going to be staggered. So basically if you've ever subbed to the game you're going to be in.

"However current subs are in the front of the line for that. In addition we have Priority beta keys given out. They will be let in in the early phases as well. For people that ask me, 'I played from 2005-2007 am I in soon?' the answer is you will be in in an early phase. This is all going to be a moot point here soon as we just open the beta and start letting people in."
