will not include cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and PC owners. "Because of the update cadence, and the additional steps you have to go through to be able to release an update on the PlayStation network, we're not going to be able to keep our servers in sync, so you won't be able to just play with the same people," Sony Online Entertainment Creative Director Matt Higby told Eurogamer
However, players may be able to transfer their characters between the two versions of the free-to-play MMO, as "the character format's the same on both, it's just purely a matter of the server updates." The PC version of PlanetSide 2
launched in November 2012, and was confirmed for PS4 in June
along with DC Universe Online
. Both games will remain free to play, and will not require a PlayStation Plus
subscription to play online.
