Sony Online Entertainment has announced the first anniversary of PlanetSide 2. The team released some fascinating statistics for the past year and that there will be a special first anniversary live stream from now through 6:00 pm PDT (9:00 pm EDT).  

Our own Bill Murphy will be on-stream with Tramell Ray Isaac, likely dying alot, between 3pm and 4pm PST (6pm and 7pm EST). Be sure to watch on PS2's channel and here on our Streams Page! We'll be giving away some exclusive decals during the stream, so don't miss it!

Over the course of the year, SOE has been on an ambitious path to expand the game's conventional and geographical boundaries. PlanetSide 2 became the first video game to feature the ability to stream gameplay directly to the Twitch platform with a single click, and through a partnership with Major League Gaming, the free-to-play title began its journey in the competitive gaming scene. Sony Online Entertainment also developed strategic international partnerships, spreading PlanetSide 2 across the globe to new audiences in Europe, Russia, South Korea, China and Brazil. 

Since launch, PlanetSide 2 has seen:

  • More than 6 millions registrations worldwide
  • Nearly 10 million base flips
  • More than 80 million hours spent in game
  • Almost 93 billion shots fired
  • More than 878 million kills

Today, players can join their favorite developers and community members during a special PlanetSide 2 Anniversary Live Stream event from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST. During the stream, players will have the opportunity to win prizes, including in-game items, NVIDIA graphic cards, a PlayStation 4, and more. To watch the stream or to subscribe to the PlanetSide 2 channel, visit: http://www.twitch.tv/PlanetSide2. The full live stream schedule can be found here: https://www.planetside2.com/news/happy-birthday-auraxians.

To commemorate the one-year anniversary, today through Sunday, Nov. 24, SOE will sell a one-year anniversary bundle for $39.99 USD, which includes special anniversary camos, weapons, decals and a six-month heroic boost.
