Confirmation comes to us overnight that the promised Australian servers for PlanetSide 2 have now been brought online, with SOE president John Smedley dropping the bomb via his Twitter account.
Players have already begun playing on the AU servers, reporting zero lag and a vastly improved play experience. Kudos to SOE for going ahead with the move in a time when Australians constantly suffer under terrible international ping — we’ll keep playing non-stop so we can get our review to you when the game goes live on November 20.
PlanetSide 2 will be free to play, but you can buy alpha squad access now and start the game with a whole bunch of in-game cash, goodies, and boosts, as well as play in the beta until launch.
