The Sony Online Entertainment gaming convention or "SOE-Live" is underway and with it some key news about Planetside 2.

Fans were alerted ahead of time that SOE would be unveiling the release date for Planetside 2 and expanding upon the main areas the developers would be spending their time focused on up until release. Planetside 2's developers have already been making sweeping updates to the MMOFPS and with promises of more updates and another continent before launch it appears crunch time is in order.

Prior to tonight's announcement the developers mentioned that they will be moving ahead with continuing to focus on fixing the poor performance a large portion of users are currently experiencing.

Beta keys are becoming more available by the day it seems. Have you gotten in the Planetside 2 beta yet? Do you feel the November release date is too soon? Let us know in the comments!

One thing I really don't get is why the hell the infantry is wearing plastic while the tanks are built from diamond.

If you get into anybodies scope as an infantry...even as heavy assault with heavy armor you will die in a matter of seconds.

And at the same time it will take 5 rockets just to blow up an apc (armored personnel carrier).

And at the same time people are wondering why the most popular form of play is tank spam...maybe because doing anything as infantry will just get you spent back to spawn in seconds.

This is far from ready to be launched. Right now, they only have a few servers, and lots of latency issues (people teleporting, freezing, crashing, etc.) and the cert gain is far from finished. Anyone in the beta knows that it needs at least 2 more months to be ready for launch, and that is being generous. At many times, you are only getting 14 frames, and they don't even have joystick support yet for the aircraft. Most of the weapons on all personas are not balanced, and some are nerfed to the point of being useless. If it was your standard 32/32 match, it would be fine, but when you have hundreds of people scrambling to take one location, there isn't much you can do but spray, and pray that you or your target aren't lagging.
