If you thought that 2014 couldn't possibly fit another PlayStation 4 beta, MMO shooter Planetside 2 is here to prove you wrong. Speaking with Eurogamer.net, the game's creative director Matt Higby confirmed that a test will be hitting the super system by the end of the year.
As for the title itself, Higby said his team is hard at work in an attempt to make the best experience possible. "As much as it sounds like we're blowing smoke, we're working hard to release a game that feels like a full-on console experience and not just like a port," the gaffer stated. "So it's taken us quite a long time to re-jigger our user interface and our controls. There's a lot that needs to get done."
Its main focus, then, is to make sure the shooter runs smoothly on the shiny new console. "But our goal is at the end of the day to have our launch on the PS4 feel like a great PS4 native console game. Not just a PC port," he continued. "From a graphical fidelity perspective, I think that people will be very impressed with what they see on the PS4."
Higby was also quick to mention that the team is aiming for the title to run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, if that sort of thing floats your boat. Will you be securing yourself a spot in this beta, or will you just wait for the full release next year? Let us know in the comments section below.
