Seems like listening in to John Smedley’s Twitter account is the primo way to get any information about Planetside 2 these days. First he revealed that it would be on Steam, and now overnight he’s revealed that we will be getting an Australian server.
In response to a Twitter user telling John they were setting up a survey to determine demand for one, he just replied “Honestly we are just going to bite the bullet and put a server down there.”
An Australian server will go a long way towards making the game a success for Australians, especially since it’s free to play. Very exciting news.
