Planetside 2 and DC Universe Online Coming to PlayStation 4
Sony have announced that they'll be bringing MMOFPS Planetside 2 and MMORPG DC Universe Online to PlayStation 4 when it launches at the end of the year. Both games have been critically acclaimed on PC, and DC Universe Online was popular on PlayStation 3, so this announcement is of little surprise to those who watch the industry, but it's a welcome addition to the PlayStation 4 catalogue regardless. Both free-to-play, this will mean that anybody who buys a PS4 will technically own at least two games already, and that's not counting what's coming to PlayStation Plus.
Planetside 2 is an absolutely gorgeous MMOFPS totally unlike any other MMOFPS on the market. Hundreds of players face off against each other in a shooter experience that takes that feeling of being in a real, breathing, thinking army to an entirely new level. It can have a difficult learning curve, but picking it up on PlayStation 4 in the launch window should level the playing field somewhat (and may result in a few trophies as well!)
DC Universe Online allows you to create a hero in the vein of some of the greatest characters ever created. Fight alongside the likes of Batman, the Joker, Superman, Lex Luthor, Catwoman and dozens more, The PS3 version is great, but the PlayStation 4 version promises to be akin to its PC counterpart, especially in terms of graphics. In the all important opening months - and likely available within the same time frame as all the hype for Man of Steel - you can bet this will have more than a decent following on Sony's next-gen console.
Of course, this is only the start of a burgeoning MMO market on PlayStation 4 and, along with Ubisoft's The Division, you can bet that before long you'll need to invest in a console if you want to play every MMO going.
