PS4 offers visuals ‘that rival high end gaming PCs,’ says PlanetSide 2 dev

The developer behind PlanetSide 2 has heaped praise on PlayStation 4’s technical prowess, stating Sony’s next-generation console offers visuals comparable to that of high-end PCs.

Speaking with GamingBolt in regards to what has motivated Sony Online Entertainment to bring the game to PS4, executive producer, Clint Worley, replied:

“As players have been asking for PlanetSide 2 to be payable on the console, we wanted to open the door and invite them into the PlanetSide 2 universe. With the PS4 hardware, we can offer amazing graphics that rival a high end gaming PC without compromising the gameplay or social structures that are critical to PlanetSide 2; it is the ideal platform to showcase the game’s beauty and massive open world combat.”

PlanetSide 2 was originally released on PC last November, and is a remake of the original title released back in 2003. Taking the form of a MMO-FPS, PlanetSide 2 takes place in the same world as its precursor title, and is set in a sprawling open world featuring battles of up to 2000 players.

The PS4 version of the game will be released alongside Sony’s new console at launch this November.
