Sony Online Entertainment has announced a really exciting PlanetSide 2 tournament, taking place later this week in Culver City, California. This is the first major PlanetSide 2 competition and SOE is pulling out all the stops to ensure that this is an event to remember. FPS General will be on hand at the event, and we're going to livestream the whole thing for you guys at http://www.own3d.tv/PlanetSide2.
The event sounds great and will feature three hand-picked teams to guarantee some amazing battles. Team captains will be on hand in the form of YouTube icons Total Biscuit, SeaNanners and Level Cap. These three captains will be joined by both members of the PlanetSide 2 community as well as Sony Online Entertainment developers to form some pretty intense and competitive teams. Only the most powerful faction will survive.
In addition to the tournament, SOE has teased some exciting PlanetSide 2 announcements including information on their roadmap for the game throughout the next few months and some pretty interesting eSports initiatives. While we're down there, we'll be sure to do our best to grab some interviews with the team working on PlanetSide 2, so if you have any questions you'd like us to ask be sure to drop us a line in the comments below.
