PlanetSide 2 Beta Beginning; Steam Confirmed

John Smedley's Twitter Feed informs us that beta testing for PlanetSide 2 is getting underway today, saying: "We are go for beta at 2pm. Flagging has started. This is for current PS1 subscribers and All Access members. PS1 vets later" (we're presuming all of this is Pacific time, so that would be 5:00 pm EDT), later stressing that these vets (as opposed to current subscribers) need to register to qualify. In answer to a question about when those with beta keys to the MMOFPS obtained through Twitter would get in, he offers this outlook: "2-3 weeks (ish). depends on how things go in the beta. I can't stress enough that this is an actual 'let's find bugs' beta." It's also worth noting that Smedley recently confirmed the game will be offered through Steam, among other places.

I think Tribes only gets big populations on weekends. Their double XP weekends or whatever are the times when you don't end up playing the same people every day throughout the day. Otherwise weekdays I'll see the same 10-15 people very often, on weekends maybe 5 of that 10-15.

It's more consistent now that they group by rank, but it was still a pretty regular group of people playing at certain times before that change.

So I'd guess they maybe have a steady group of 5-8k players per server hub, with it spiking up to 15-20k on the XP weekends. Really hard to judge on how many people overall throughout the day, but I'm thinking 5k people seems pretty reasonable for a weekday.

And looks like I won't be getting into PS2 beta for at least another week as a vet.
