GameSpot's Planetside 2 review was thorough with its praise, with critic Kevin VanOrd describing the title as "a consistent blast, and a monument to emergent, player-driven gameplay."
Writing on the PlayStation Blog, developer Andy Sites described the game as a "massive scale, first-person shooter where soldiers battle as one in strategic, targeted missions against enemy empires in an all-out planetary war."
He continued: "This game challenges the skill and grit of even the most seasoned soldier through intense infantry, air, and ground vehicle gameplay."
The Planetside 2 PS4 release date has yet to be finalized.
