Last night at the annual SOE Live fan event, Sony Online Entertainment announced the release date for PlanetSide 2, their highly anticipated massively multiplayer online first-person shooter.

PlanetSide 2 will launch in North America and Europe on November 20, 2012. The game will be free-to-play although there will be optional content available for purchase through the marketplace.

PlanetSide 2 is without a doubt the next great MMOFPS and I believe it heralds the next phase and future of the gaming industry,” said SOE President John Smedley. “External beta participants have experienced first-hand the sweeping implications that PlanetSide 2’s unrelenting action gameplay and large-scale mixed infantry, air, and ground vehicle combat have had on the advancement of the FPS genre."

He added: "By providing an enormous magnitude of multiplayer action gameplay and features, we are fostering a community of passionate, engaged players and delivering an experience they have never before encountered, but always envisioned, in an online shooter: massive, player-driven combat warfare on unparalleled thousand player battlefields.”

PlanetSide 2 is being marketing as a "Free-to-play. Your Way" title for PC. There is a Premium Membership option in the U.S. which for $14.99 will include scalable gains for resources, XP, and passive cert points. Premium Members will also receive priority placement in the login queue, access to new cosmetic items, and a monthly Station Cash bonus.
