SoE’s John Smedley tweets to give beta start dates next month.

Sony’s MMO sci-fi shooter Planetside 2’s arrival on PS4 is edging ever closer with news from Sony Online Entertainment’s president John Smedley recently that the PS4 beta test will commence in the coming weeks.


Smedley has confirmed the beta will be going live on “either the week of the 13th or 20th” of January with a solid start date due when the developers return to work on 5th January.

Planetside 2 is one of a number of free to play games Sony are aiming to bring to their latest home console over the next year, after having been delayed from its planned launch in 2014. Sign ups for the closed beta became available earlier this month.
