Increased Resource Caps Removed
Sony Online Entertainment has slightly changed the Planetside 2 premium membership benefits, removing the increased resource caps that were deemed overpowered by the community. As things stand, you'll be able to play SOE's multiplayer PC shooter for free, but a monthly $14.99 payment will speed up your progression by 25-50% depending on how long you maintain your subscription. We've got more details below.
Planetside 2 is currently in beta and on track to release before year's end.
Planetside 2 Membership Benefits:
- 25-50% increased resource gain.
- 25-50% increased XP gain.
- 25-50% increased passive cert point gain.
- Note: Each of the above start at 25% and increase by 5% per month of sustained membership up to a total bonus of 50% each at 6+ months membership.
- Priority login queue
- Early Access to new cosmetic items on the store
- 500 StationCash each month
As mentioned, your resource, XP and cert point gain statistics will increase by 5% for each month you maintain your subscription - though you'll instantly receive the 50% bonus if you pay up-front for six months. PCGamesN reports that the monthly has an equivalent cash value of $5.
Planetside 2 is looking plenty tasty (and seriously visceral) ahead of its full release, as evidenced by the latest trailer.
