When PlanetSide 2 launches later this year, Sony Online Entertainment will be launching an iOS app alongside the game. We had the chance to sit down with Josh Hackney, Executive Producer on Planetside 2, as he walks us through some of the features we can look forward to. Incidentally, we also interviewed Josh Hackney earlier this week, so check that out, while you're at it!
The application is going to be available on iOS - for iPhone, iPad and iPod - but Sony Online Entertainment didn't confirm whether it would be exclusively available on that platform, so Android and Windows Phone users don't despair! The iOS app features a handful of sections to bring PlanetSide 2 players relevant information on their personal stats and the goings on of the PlanetSide 2 community.
The sections in the current build of the app included Guide, Stats, Community, Extras, Map and Voice Chat. The application looks pretty straightforward but is a great bonus that will let PlanetSide 2 players take the game experience with them on the road. One of the neat features we liked is the territory control map which shows how the game world is currently being controlled and which factions control the majority of the land.
