Planetside 2 lifts off with official launch trailer

Although the game was in open beta for quite some time and anybody could play it, today’s official stable release of PlanetSide 2 shouldn’t go unnoticed. The trailer — which features nothing but in-game footage — is a clear indicator that developers have worked out all the kinks and the game is ready to roll.

It should also be noted that even though the game is past the beta phase, it’s still completely free to play. You can download it right now and start playing in minutes. If you don’t mind parting with some cash, however, there are also monthly subscription options available that’ll give you access to certain perks — things like priority in the login queue (which takes a while sometimes), and 500 station cash each month that can be used to buy weapons and vanity items.
