The lights are on
Sony’s PS4 push for compelling free-to-play content offerings will be getting a hefty boost with Sony Online Entertainment’s PlanetSide 2. While it’s been available on PC forever, the game will be looking to capture a whole new audience on the console with its fast-paced first-person shooter combat in an MMO world. At E3 2014, I had a chance to sit down and get some hands on with title on the PS4.
While I can't claim to be a console FPS specialist, the controls did feel intuitive. If you've played any Halo or Call of Duty title, you're going to be able to instantly grasp the controls. The game's class and loadout system is easy to pick up and play with, and also allows for deeper customization for advanced players. Outside of the controls being moved to the PS4 controller, all other content from the PC game from vehicles to the world is unchanged in the console version. In addition, I'm fairly certain that the game looks better on the PS4 than it looks on many PCs running the game on medium or lower settings.
