Massive shooter 'PlanetSide 2' hits PS4 for free in June

PlanetSide 2 is massive -- it holds the Guinness World Record for the most players in a single online, first-person shooter battle with 1,158 people -- and it officially launches on PlayStation 4 on June 23rd, completely free to play. It's been in beta on PS4 since January, but the floodgates really open later this month, especially considering you don't need a PlayStation Plus subscription to jump in for free. Developer Daybreak Game Company (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) promises to keep the updates coming on PS4 with holiday content, new features and fresh items.

"On behalf of the PlanetSide 2 development team, we'd like to thank the tens of thousands of players that have taken part in the Closed Beta testing," Director of Development Andy Sites says. "Because of you, we've been able to make a ton of refinements to the game that otherwise wouldn't have been possible without your valuable feedback."
