Development Letter: PlanetSide Arena Heads to PS4 with Summer 2019 Launch and Massive-Scale Modes



First off, a huge thank you to everyone who participated in our Closed Beta these past few weeks. Your suggestions have been crucial in providing our team with direct and meaningful gameplay feedback. We can’t even begin to express our appreciation for all of the time and effort you’ve spent helping us test and improve the game.

After much consideration, we’ve decided to postpone the current PC-only release date and launch simultaneously across PC and PlayStation 4 this summer. We’ve always envisioned PlanetSide Arena as a way for players to experience the epic gameplay of the PlanetSide universe, through fast-paced, combined arms combat and massive-scale multiplayer modes. We believe that delivering the most polished version of PlanetSide Arena that meets these expectations, on both platforms, outweighs any other consideration.

In light of our revised launch plan, we are refunding all Planetside Arena pre-orders. We’re committed to continuing and expanding our Beta testing program as we ramp-up for our multi-platform launch this Summer and will share more details soon. You can visit the Steam Help page for more information on refunds.

Thank you all again for your amazing support. We’re very excited about the future and can’t wait see everyone back in the Arena!

Closed Beta: Schedule and Overview



Welcome to the PlanetSide Arena Closed Beta! We’re so excited for everyone to start dropping into the Arena, and extremely eager for your feedback as we build towards the beginning of our Founders Season (February 20) and full launch (March 26). Read on below for all the details you’ll need to participate in Beta.

HOW TO JOIN

Everyone who pre-orders the game through Steam is guaranteed entry into Closed Beta. Once you preorder, PlanetSide Arena – Closed Beta will automatically appear be in your Steam Library (you don’t need a key). Pre-ordering will also grant you access to ALL future Betas, as well as the Founders Season and exclusive Founders Season Battle Pass. You can also sign-up on our Closed Beta portal for a chance to receive a key, though sign-ups through the portal are not guaranteed.

Once the Closed Beta appears in your library, you can immediately install the client, but you’ll only be able to join matches during scheduled server windows (see below). Regional servers are open for any player to join any Closed Beta session, just bear in mind that connection quality will vary depending on your server proximity.

SCHEDULE

The next Closed Beta session will be on Saturday, February 2 and feature TEAMS (threes). Regional servers will be unlocked during the following windows:

  • EU (February 2): 5PM - 8PM GMT
  • NA (February 2): 12PM - 3PM PST 
  • APAC (February 3): 12PM - 3PM CST (China Standard Time)
Convert to your local time)

Additional Beta periods are planned throughout the next few weeks, and we’ll be providing schedule updates on our official forums, on our social accounts (Twitter, Facebook), and on the main PlanetSide Arena Closed Beta FAQ

AVAILABLE MODES

Closed Beta will initially feature Solo BR, Teams BR (threes), and Massive Clash (large-scale GvG). New modes will be announced via official game channels. 

FEEDBACK

As our Dev team shared in their most recent Development letter, Beta is a critical opportunity for your feedback to impact the game at its core and shape its future. Our new official forums will serve as the main avenue of feedback throughout Beta, with the suggestions and bug reports subforums specifically set-up for you to directly interact with our development team so we can act on your feedback in advance of future Beta sessions.  Feel free to be as detailed (and creative!) in your feedback as possible! 

NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT (NDA)

During this first Closed Beta window, we are requiring that players to accept an NDA (which prohibits streaming, content capture, and posting gameplay footage anywhere on the internet) prior to joining matches. You’ll see the NDA pop-up when you first launch Closed Beta, prior to the main menu. We will let you know when the NDA lifts and you can start streaming or sharing gameplay video in the coming weeks.  

NDA ONLY prohibits sharing video and gameplay content capture – you’re free to share your thoughts and stories from Closed Beta on the forums as well as on social media.  

KNOWN ISSUES

Closed Beta is a testing period that will push our hardware and server infrastructure to new limits -- as such, we’re sure to run into snags like lag, bugs, and performance hiccups. The bug reports subforum is set-up for you to report any issues you can encounter directly to our development team, and we also plan to keep you informed of the known issues as well as any potential fixes going into each testing period: 

We’ll provide regular updates as new issues are discovered along with potential fixes so your Closed Beta experience can be as smooth as possible.


PlanetSide Arena is currently available for pre-order on Steam, with your pre-order granting immediate access to Closed Beta (as well to the exclusive Founders Season kicking off next month). We are looking forward to seeing everyone in the Arena!
