Older gamers love to talk about how games are just too easy these days. To some extent, they're right. There are a lot of games built with complete newbies in mind that have abundant tutorials, easier difficulty settings, and forgiving mechanics like regenerating health.
DayBreak Games is the new studio that used to be known as Sony Online Entertainment. It was one of the wings under Sony that focused primarily on online games. Well, shortly after changing names, the creative director for Planetside 2 decided it was time to pursue other interests.
Daybreak Game Company, the studio formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment, will be laying off employees at its Austin and San Diego offices.
The face of war is about to change on the PlayStation 4, as PlanetSide 2 finally gears up for its first closed beta, set to begin on Jan. 20. For those who would like to get in on the action nice and early, thereís still time to sign up for service.
Fans of the free-to-play shooter from Sony Online Entertainment can finally take a sigh of relief after it's been revealed that details on the PlayStation 4 beta will be coming soon. How soon? How about January soon?
The PlayStation 4 already has a decent stable of free-to-play games on offer, but one of the most highly anticipated of the lot, PlanetSide 2, is still nowhere to be seen. According to recent reports, however, a beta is still planned for some time before the calendar flips into 2015.
Free-to-play games arenít exactly new to consoles, but weíve never seen them in the number and variety thatís being made available in this new generation, especially on the PlayStation 4. Hereís a look at our five most anticipated free-to-play games for Sonyís home console.
PS4, PS3, and PS Vita woke up this morning to find that PlayStation Network is down. The service, along with several PC multiplayer games, has been reportedly taken down by hackers.
We don't hear much about Planetside 2 outside of some news surrounding its inevitable launch on the PlayStation 4. However, the game is still making some massive gains in the performance and content department over on PC. The free-to-play title has evolved quite a bit since its launch and the latest patch notes happen to be quite lengthy.
It was previously confirmed that Planetside 2 ran at native 1080p on PlayStation 4, but now we have confirmation from SOE that the game will also run at 60 frames per second on Sony's console, making it one of the most technically impressive feats for an MMO running on a home console.
If a console can't hit native 1080p and regularly has to settle for eye-straining resolutions like 792p or 810p, then it poses a massive problem for that platform. Thankfully, Sony Online Entertainment has reportedly confirmed that Planetside 2 will be native 1080p for the PlayStation 4.
Some pretty big news has dropped for PlayStation 4 owners, as Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley has made it known that some of the big properties of SOE will be arriving for the PS4, along with a brand new IP.
Sony Online Entertainment plans to add smaller landmasses to PlanetSide 2's game world called Battle Islands. They've released screenshots and a trailer for Nexus, the first Battle Island that they've revealed thus far.
Sony Online Entertainment is bringing two of its free-to-play MMO's to the PlayStation 4. PlanetSide 2 and DC Universe Online will both be available for the next-gen console later this year.
Sony Online Entertainment has implemented Game Update 8 for their PC MMO shooter PlanetSide 2. The patch brings some new toys for players who like to suit up in Mechanized Assault Exo-Suits, or MAXs.
