I’m looking forward to the inevitable “I love the 2000s” documentaries in which Stuart Maconie will lean back with a whistful, faraway gaze and say “Ahhh … shops, eh? Remember those?” Looks like Planetside 2 remembers just fine. It’ll be getting a £8.00 GBP retail release in Europe, courtesy of Koch Media and ProSiebenSat.1 Games.
You’ll be able to pick it up from 16 August and it will, of course, include some gear. After all, why else would you spend eight quid on a free to play title? Here’s what you’ll be getting for the price:
24 Carat Power Pack
