According to Sony Online Entertainmet, the beta for Planetside 2 is set to begin on either this coming Friday or Monday, pending any unforseen complications.

The information about who gets to enter the beta first is a bit dense, so I thought it would be best to just tell you exactly what we were told:

"External Beta invites will be sent out in waves on an as needed basis, with priority given to active Planetside subscribers, inactive past subscribers and then Priority Beta Code and opt-in registrants, in that order. Invitations to the External Beta will automatically be sent via email to the address associated with the Station Account utilized to register for Beta participation on"

In fewer words, if you signed up for the beta, keep an eye on your e-mail. You could be receiving a code soon. For more on Planetside 2, click here.
