Planetside 2 Coming to Retail

Koch Media have announced that they're bringing Planetside 2 to retail. The free-to-play PC game will be available at stores for £7.99 from August 8th, and will come with a series of in-game items valued at over £40. The digital version of the game will, of course, stay free-to-play. (PC, Planetside 2)

Good to hear. Game needs more exposure.

Just released a huge update for PC. Might download later.

This is a great game to keep you occupied in between other releases.

Such a smart move on Sony's part and I'm hoping XB1 & Wii U get a few decent F2P games as well.

Probably pick it up even though I've been playing since Dec.

Just to show my support

Planetside 2 is utterly amazing, but not really sure why it needs a retail edition? It's free to download, and you already need a decent internet connection to play it.

A couple of people above reckon it could be exposure - I suppose that must be it. Hell, if I ever need 1000SC, I guess this could be a fun way of getting it while also netting some extra bonuses (though still have loads left over from a 3X sale).
