Planetside 2 Coming to Retail

planetside 2 retail

Koch Media have announced that they’re bringing Planetside 2 to retail. The free-to-play PC game will be available at stores for £7.99 from August 8th, and will come with a series of in-game items valued at over £40. The digital version of the game will, of course, stay free-to-play.

If you’ve yet to download Planetside 2 via Steam, or if you’re just a fan of boxed games, you’ll be able to grab one of the biggest MMOFPS games on the market for a very low price. If you’ve been holding on for the PS4 version but just can’t resist any longer, now is the time to bite.

The retail version of the game will also contain all the updates and expansions released so far. This is good news for those buying it straight away, although the advantage of that is unlikely to last very long.

The in-game items are:

24 Carat Power Pack 
·        Exclusive to the retail version: Golden SMGs for each of the three empires: 
o        Vanu Sovereignty Eridani SX5-G: The Eridani SX5 fully automatic submachine gun excels in close quarter combat situations. 
o        New Conglomerate AF-4 Cyclone-G: The AF-4 Cyclone is a fully automatic submachine gun that has a higher damage output than most weapons in its class. 
o        Terran Republic SMG-46 Armistice-G: The SMG-46 Armistice fully automatic submachine gun features a fast rate of fire and larger than average ammunition capacity. 
·        7-day +50% XP boost:  increases experience gain by 50% for 7 days on your character 
·        1000 SevenCash / Station Cash (worth £7.99), redeemable through PlanetSide 2 accounts from ProSiebenSat.1 Games and Sony Online Entertainment 
Battle Buddy:

·        This 3-day +50% XP boost code can be given to a buddy or squad mate to increase experience gain by 50% for 3 days on their character
