Register for the Planetside 2 closed beta now

Find out how you can get an early taste of the upcoming online shooter

Hello everyone. Over the past several months, the PlanetSide 2 development team has been working day and night in preparation for the game’s release on PlayStation 4. We can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on the game and I’m happy to announce that our European closed beta testing will be starting on 25th March 2015!

For those not familiar with the game, PlanetSide 2 is a revolutionary, massive scale, first-person shooter where soldiers battle as one in strategic, targeted missions against enemy empires in an all-out planetary war. This game challenges the skill and grit of even the most seasoned soldier through intense infantry, air, and ground vehicle gameplay.

Spanning across four massive continents, battles can last for hours, days or even weeks. Coordinated attacks to capture key tactical positions have long-lasting effects that can shift the tide of battle.


Victory requires strategic teamwork and a quick trigger finger to survive massive everyday conflicts. PlanetSide 2 also provides sophisticated communication tools that players need to achieve superiority and strategise from within and outside the game environments. PlanetSide 2’s massive battles will make your adrenaline rush – there is nothing else like it on the console.

If you would like an opportunity to have an exclusive early look and provide feedback to the development team, go to the PlanetSide 2 website and sign up for the beta. You will then be eligible to receive a beta voucher that you can use to access the PlanetSide 2 closed beta test via PlayStation Store. Once in the closed beta, don’t forget to visit our forums and give us your feedback.

Join the fight and we’ll see you online!

Did you enjoy this?

Played this on PC last year. I surely wished that it would be an epic game like MAG in PS3. Unfortunately I could not get into it, I got lost. I hope the beta changes my mind.

Been playing PS2 on PC for a few years now really enjoy it. Can’t wait for this and H1Z1 to hit the PS4.

I think this is the 4th time we’ve been told we can now register for the beta over the last several months. First one turned out was US only, although the sign up form said nothing about it. No idea what happened to all my other sign ups. Not sure if I can be bothered now. I’ve got too many games to play as it is.

I signed up ages ago too and not heard anything.

Us Canadians weren’t included in the NA closed beta, do you think we could be allowed in now? I mean I signed up in 2013, before 99% of the people in USA, yet they get in before me… not cool

    Not sure if the EU blog is a good place to ask this question for two reasons.

    1: the EU blog team don’t post author replies.
    2: even if they did they wouldn’t be able to get moment on the US beta. We can’t even get an answer on if Powers will be released in Europe before the end of the first season.

I signed up when the ps4 beta sign ups first went live and still not heard anything and i dont know anyone else who had signed up having heard anything either so it must be a quiet beta lol.

What if you already have access to the current beta? Will you have to reapply to play?

Themanss22 21 March, 2015 @ 3:50 am   10

Do you have to use PlayStation plus to play it?

    European_Gamer 21 March, 2015 @ 5:49 am    

    No, PS+ is not required for Free-to-Play games (e.g. PlanetSide 2 and and Warframe) subscription based games (e.g. Final Fantasy 14).

    SwingerE11 23 March, 2015 @ 9:45 am    

    When I tried to play a free to play game it said i needed ps+

Catladon 23 March, 2015 @ 12:21 pm   11

SwingerE11 what F2P game, Warframe, Blacklight,War thunder,DC Universe do not require PS+, neither will Planetside.

When do we get our BETA key as it’s supposed to go live tomorrow isn’t it? (25th March 2015)


Got an email saying I had access to the beta, but the link brings me to the wrong page. Meh!

ICE-KID1994 25 March, 2015 @ 11:09 pm   14

MrKnightmare 26 March, 2015 @ 1:38 am   15

Just got an email saying I could access the Beta, but when I go there it says I don’t have permission to access the page 🙁

    CtrlAltDel- 26 March, 2015 @ 5:11 am    

    same as MrKnightmare.
    Called Sony Australia, they told me that they don’t support this product as it is bought over by DayBreak Games. Sigh!!!

“Your permissions do not allow you access to this section”. if you get that message try opening the link in another browser. Mine didn’t work on Firefox but it worked on Chrome. But still no voucher code!

trekrop 27 March, 2015 @ 8:48 pm   19

So sad atm told all my mates to sign up after I got the mail for signing up for the beta. They all got the key but I didn’t, strange because they all signed up after me
