I found it 12 hours after the release, so that means I found it before you!

Isn't this the job of beta testers, to make it operational for other testers and eventually the public? If not then why even have a beta...

I agree, release it to the masses now. Please. I just want to play.

(Sarcasm, btw although I do just want to play it already)

I'm not sure if this has been touch on already, but if beta keys are going to be handed out to the masses on the 28th, when do Veterans get their beta keys? (Or even emailing keys) - Unless its on the same week with the release of the PC gamer issue?

Hopefully sooner tbh, if random bob and joe get BETA keys before the people that have actually played the fucking game - that would be a little bit stupid.

Even if we can't play the BETA, it seems a bit thick.

This is SoE though, so anything is possible. As much as i love Higby, T-Ray, Radar and the team. The best Devs i've ever seen work on a game, and i've followed a LOT of games - SOE has a desperved reputation for taking a game and raping the life out of it untill its deformed.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Re: What we know about Beta.


The way I understand it is that PS1 vets don't actually receive keys.

By signing up for beta with the same account that you used to play PS1 you are automatically given priority when beta starts. All the PC Gamer keys do is places those who haven't played PS1 in the same priority pool as those who have.

Keep in mind, just being in this priority pool doesn't mean that everyone in it will get accepted into beta with the first wave of invites.

Hmmm, good point.

Never thought of it like that.

Thinking about this makes me so scared for Planetside 2.

Yea the beta doesnt mean you get in the second you enter it. It's a preemptive beta code.

So what about us EU people? Especially now with the news that you can't play on US servers. Does that count for the beta too? Many people are wondering if we can also play in the beta but we still didn't get it clarified. I would really appreciate it if a dev could clarify this. I'd rather have them say they don't know, than that they say nothing at all.

Re: What we know about Beta.


Man all I know is I want to atleast try Planetside 2.

My old account says.

PLANETSIDE™ GAME PASS DETAILS
Enabled Features:
Entitlement: Base Game
Entitlement: Core Combat
PS GameFeature Bit2
Original Activation Date: June 20, 2003

My other account is 2003 but missing the 'PS Gamefeature Bit2" part.

I am going to get TWO copies of the magazine and apply those codes to both my accounts.

I hope I get in. D:
