Sony Online Entertainment’s colossal online shooter will be completely free-to-play when it launches later this year though the Everquest creator is already looking to make some money back via pre-release micro-transactions.
Similar to CCP Games’ approach to their own PS3-exclusive shooter, DUST 514, SOE is offering a founder’s bundles that includes a variety of in-game perks and awards as well as instant beta access for those still awaiting their invite.
Priced at £29.99 the Alpha Squad pack includes the following:
- Instant beta access
- 4,000 free Station Cash
- Exclusive in-game camo for weapons, vehicles, and armour
- Exclusive Alpha Squad decal
- Six months’ 10% XP and Resource boost
- Exclusive “Founder” title
- 12 weapon unlocks
In PlanetSide 2 players align themselves with one of three warring factions as they attempt to capture territory across an ever-changing, persistent in-game world. Immensely ambitious and huge in scale, PlanetSide 2 is easily one of our most anticipated PC launches of the year.
