Sony Online Entertainment announced that 48 game stations will be available at Booth #B-060j in the ESL CM Storm Arena (Hall 8) to help visitors to take part in battles with each other.

The game stations will be open for PlanetSide 2 play in four blocks of time stretched over two days: tomorrow, August 16th, and Friday, August 17th. On both days, the available times will be 5:45 a.m. to 6:15 a.m. EDT (11:45 a.m. to 12 :15 p.m CET) and 9:45 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. EDT (3:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. CET).
