PlanetSide Arena drops weapons blog ahead of tomorrow’s early access phase one launch

Still on the fence about the newly revivified development of PlanetSide Arena? The massive-scale battle royale game moves from private preview to early access this week, and ahead of that launch, Daybreak has posted up some fresh info about the game – specifically, how weapons loadouts work.

“PlanetSide Arena offers a wealth of guns to choose from, and with the ability to pre-select your Loadout before joining a match, you’ll never drop into the Arena without a full arsenal. Every player, regardless of class, will always begin each match with 3 weapons: a primary (default 1 key), secondary (default 2 key), and sidearm (default 3 key). Special power weapons that map to the 4 key can also be found in every match. At the beginning of each match, you’ll always start with Common versions (green tier) of the the weapons in your Loadout. Rare (blue), Epic (purple), and Legendary (gold) upgrades for each weapon can be looted or purchased with nanites (in-match currency) every match.”

There’s much more in the blog post, including a full breakdown of the weapons with videos too.

Daybreak originally announced PSA last year, but it was delayed twice with refunds, followed by radio silence for six months before the August early access announcement. It’s expected to release into that early access tomorrow on September 19th as development pushes on to launch in Q2 of next year.

Seems like a last ditch effort by a company that is in dire straights. Use what you already have lying around (in this case, engine and assets) the office and try to make some cash off it.

I’d like to try it, but there’s just no way I’m going to pay money for a battle royale game when there are proven titles that are free, and when they’re reusing assets from a F2P game that’s been out for almost seven years.

Dropping with Weapons is a very smart idea IMO. I don’t really like BR’s at all but two of the main reasons for that are because you start with no weapons (or without the weapon you like) and have to spend 45 minutes looking for other players on the map. PS:A seems to address both of those problems so I’ll be giving it a go.

Weapons, schmepons, can people put hot pink rabbit ears on their power armor or not?
