Upcoming MMOFPS PlanetSide 2 is rapidly approaching its beta phase, and as such, have posted a new summary of their plans for the beta. Starting this week, July 9th to 15th, the post outlines who will be getting beta keys, saying they will be opening up the test in multiple stages, adding more and more people with each stage.
Also, it’s worth noting that players of the original PlanetSide do not need beta keys – their accounts will automatically be flagged for beta, and they’ll be notified by email.
Finally, they want you to know that this is a real beta, unlike many that are just promotional and/or game demos. “Beta testing is a critically important part of our development cycle on this project, we may be asking you to only play on tanks for a play session, or only play aircraft. We are doing true beta testing, not just a game demo and we implore those of you who are invited to understand and respect that. Things will break, the server will be unavailable sometimes, we will cancel scheduled tests when we find something that breaks before the test starts. All of this will help us make a better final game.”
