It feels like ages since we last saw an ominous gaming countdown clock. Thankfully, Sony have delivered, with this great big ticker for PlanetSide 2, formerly and less sensibly known as Planetside: Next. We can only speculate as to what will happen when the countdown reaches zero. Either the doom-clock will unleash a robot army to trigger a bionic apocalypse, or we'll learn a little bit more about the new PlanetSide game.
Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley has revealed that the sequel to Planetside is set to be released before summer this year.
Not long ago the President of Sony Online Entertainment managed to not "technically announce" a sequel to the massively multiplayer FPS, PlanetSide. Now he's revealed that there's going to be a beta after the game's official announcement early next year.
