Daybreak Game Company, formerly Sony Online Entertainment, has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version of sci-fi MMOFPS PlanetSide 2 will launch from closed beta testing in North America on June 23rd.

Not even requiring a PlayStation Plus membership (though PS Plus subscribers will get a discount on the Nanite Systems Starter Bundle), PlanetSide 2 will launch as free-to-play with “optional in-game purchases via digital download.” Committed PlanetSiders will have the option to subscribe at a $14.99 monthly rate for “a monthly Battle Cash grant, increased experience, cert, and resource gains, discounts in the marketplace, exclusive promotions, and access to a monthly double experience weekend event,” as well as priority log-in queue access.

PS4 players will be treated to unique features, such as DualShock 4 touchpad integration and Share button functionality, as well as exclusive content, starting with the all-new Koltyr battle map. Regular updates following release also promise to add “deeper features, holiday events and content, new in-game marketplace items, and much, much more.”
