PlanetSide Arena announced
New multiplayer shooter coming in early 2019
Daybreak Games has announced PlanetSide Arena, a new massive-scale multiplayer sci-fi shooter set to release on January 29, 2019.
PlanetSide Arena will initially launch with three major game modes: Massive Clash, a 500-player Group vs. Group experience, along with Solo and Team Battle Royale modes. New modes like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Global Conquest will be introduced each new game season.
Players will begin every match by selecting from one of three initial character classes – Assault, Engineer, and Medic – before deploying via drop pod into a map dynamically tailored for each game mode. Each class comes equipped with a jetpack, personal vehicle, and unique abilities which can be upgraded throughout a match.
PlanetSide Arena is now available for pre-order on Steam at $25 USD for the base game. The Sanctuary Assault Edition ($19.99) includes the Season 1 Battle Pass and the Assault Armor set. The Legendary Edition ($39.99) has the Season 1 Battle Pass, three Class Armor sets, and the M-20 Tempest (hoverbike) Pack. Each pre-order grants players Closed Beta access.
PlanetSide Arena will be available on PC via Steam.
