PlanetSide Arena Announced for PC




Daybreak Games Announces PlanetSide Arena

Daybreak Games, worldwide publisher, developer and creator of compelling multiplayer online worlds, today announced PlanetSide Arena, a new massive-scale multiplayer sci-fi shooter set to release on Steam for Windows PC on Jan. 29, 2019. Featuring a robust class system, combined arms gameplay, and dynamic in-match and seasonal progression, PlanetSide Arena brings the franchise’s signature epic-scale, all-out FPS action to new massive arena game modes capable of supporting up to 1,000 players per match.

“PlanetSide is a ground-breaking series that introduced the gaming world to truly epic FPS battles,” said Ji Ham, CEO of Daybreak Games. “We are very excited to introduce PlanetSide Arena as the next step in the growth of the franchise, as we continue to invest and build towards our vision for the future of the entire PlanetSide universe.”

PlanetSide Arena initially launches with three major game modes: Massive Clash, an epic 500-player Group vs. Group experience, along with Solo and Team Battle Royale modes. New modes like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Global Conquest will be introduced each new game season.

Players will begin every match by selecting from one of three initial character classes – Assault, Engineer, and Medic – before deploying via drop pod into a massive map dynamically tailored for each game mode. Each class comes equipped with a jetpack, personal vehicle, and unique abilities which can be upgraded throughout a match, offering a layer of strategy to team construction and combat.

“There’s simply no other multiplayer shooter that can replicate the depth of play and massive scale of PlanetSide,” said Andy Sites, Executive Producer. “PlanetSide Arena will expand and evolve the franchise with new modes, new technology and new content, delivered on a scale that only PlanetSide can offer.”

In addition to the upcoming launch of PlanetSide Arena, Daybreak Games remains fully committed to providing active development support for PlanetSide 2, which recently announced engine technology improvements and a new robotic faction as part of its sixth anniversary game update. The next major update for PlanetSide 2 will introduce Oshur, the first new continent in five years, when released in 2019.

“It’s great for our team to see PlanetSide grow,” said Nick Silva, Producer of PlanetSide 2. “PlanetSide Arena offers fans something new that both preserves and builds upon all the traits that make PlanetSide 2 so unique: the massive-scale warfare, the smooth movement and combat mechanics, the iconic vehicles and weapons. It’s a huge win for all of us to introduce more players to the franchise.”

PlanetSide Arena is now available for pre-order on Steam. The Sanctuary Assault Edition (SRP $19.99) includes the Season 1 Battle Pass and the Assault Armor set. The Legendary Edition (SRP $39.99) is packed with Season 1 Battle Pass, three Class Armor sets (Engineer, Assault and Medic), and the M-20 Tempest (hoverbike) Pack. Each pre-order grants players Closed Beta access. In addition, Daybreak will also be offering Closed Beta access to the game to some of their most loyal and active PlanetSide 2 players.

Spider-Man PS4 'Silver Lining' DLC Launches December 21




Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining DLC Out December 21

Hey everyone, thank you all for your continued and tremendous support of Marvel’s Spider-Man since its September launch. Since then, we have launched two chapters of Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps, the game’s DLC, shining the spotlight on Black Cat, Hammerhead, and the Maggia. We’re thrilled to announce the series will wrap up on December 21 with the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining. We loved having Silver Sable in Marvel’s Spider-Man, and we wanted to give players even more time with her.

Silver Sable has stormed back to reclaim her stolen Sable International tech. With New York Police Chief Yuri Watanabe on administrative leave following her exploits against Hammerhead, Spider-Man will have to rely on unlikely allies to keep Marvel’s New York safe.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining features new missions, new and upgraded enemy and crime types, along with upgraded Hammerhead bases and storyline quests. There will also be new trophies, challenges, and three new suits for players to unlock.


We’re also very excited to be partnering with Sony Pictures on the upcoming film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, in theaters December 14. We are offering a special promotion where users who pre-order the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film from PlayStation Store will receive a voucher for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining, a dynamic theme, and avatars as their pre-order incentive. As you may have seen at the end of our teaser trailer, we have included Peter Parker’s suit from the movie into our third DLC chapter. Pre-orders for the movie officially start tomorrow and then you’ll be able to unlock and swing around in the film’s version of Peter Parker’s suit once Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining launches on December 21!

It was a real pleasure working in partnership with Sony Pictures and Marvel to bring this suit to the game — and we can’t wait to see what you do in photo mode with it! You’ll also be able to unlock the Cyborg Spider-Man suit and the Aaron Aikman Spider-Armor.

We also have new art from acclaimed Marvel artist and suit designer Adi Granov. With this, the whole triptych is now complete, with images for all three chapters.


You can pre-order Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining for $9.99 USD MSRP on PlayStation Store. Of course, if you haven’t tried any of the post-launch content yet, you also can buy the Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps bundle of all three chapters for $24.99 USD MSRP and start playing the first two chapters now. Haven’t played Marvel’s Spider-Man yet? The Digital Deluxe Edition is an especially good value at $79.99 USD MSRP, as it includes the full game and all three chapters of Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps.

It’s been a crazy ride for us here at Insomniac Games as we have spent the rest of 2018 developing this additional content for Marvel’s Spider-Man. We’ve been so grateful for all of your notes, comments, feedback, and support over these last few months. We hope you enjoy Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining when it releases on December 21!
