Exclamation *** PlanetSide 2 Ultimate Beta FAQ ***


I've created this thread that contains everything we know about beta. Please resist the urge to create new threads on this topic

Beta Producers Letter

http://www.planetside-universe.com/n...etter-2812.htm

http://www.planetside2.com/news/june...rs-letter-beta

External Beta will include primary rounds of entry for existing PlanetSide 1 players and additional External Beta registrants, including those who obtained Beta codes from the PC Gamer magazine cover feature. Playtests will be scheduled during this time to ensure the maximum testing of specific aspects of the game with ever increasing numbers of players. Your participation is extremely valuable to us and we’ll be balancing and revising base layouts based on your feedback. Again, we will be inviting as many of our existing PlanetSide 1 players as we can into the early phases of Beta determined by a number of different factors, including machine type. Rest assured PlanetSide 1 players... you’re top of the list in each phase.
When is beta?

Via YouTube, Josh Hackney @ 2:10 "In the next few weeks we will actually start letting trickles of folks in"


Via GameSpot, Matt Higby @12:50 ""Very near future, within the next few weeks and we will be doing open beta a couple weeks after that" He also states the game will be launched within the year.

PlanetSide 1 Players, Fan Faire 2011 attendees and PC Gamer Keys will have first access to beta once it begins.

No restrictions there. if you are/were a PlanetSide player you get a beta invite, be sure your station acct email is accurate

For the recent E3 Keys.

Unlike new folks we know who played PS1 so already have their information. Make sure your Station account is updated and you are good to go.

@natethegreat034 - You won't need a key! PS 1 vets get priority access automatically! [Danicia]

@Santiark - As a PS 1 vet, you do not need to wait for a key! We will just mark your account for priority access! [Danicia]

@planetside2 so does getting a beta key from you get me in faster than my 8 years of PS1?
@TehDuffman - Nope! You will still get priority access! [Danicia]
Please do not create additional threads on this topic. If folks have questions I will see if I can raise attention to this thread to get some answers.

I think adding ***'s around the thread name to make it visible is quite an option.

Or a longer name, because despite it being a sticky it doesn't stand out of the wall of threads at all.

Sorry if I missed this but the other thread was 50 pages.. and as long as I'm not making new threads, right?

But what exactly qualifies as a PS1 vet? I mean.. is it all those that have or once had an active subscription to PS1 or those that hade a sub for more than a year or what? And will you be given even more priority if you did have a sub for a longer period, or still have one?

I think you should add descriptions on each twitter feed. (The key ones)

For example, we have this:

@planetside2 so does getting a beta key from you get me in faster than my 8 years of PS1?


But no answer... =/

All we know is it's those who had or once had a subscription to PS1.

Thanks Hamma, this will be extremely useful, even for us players to redirect or get easy access to the info to share with other potential players
