Good news for Australian gamers. SOE will be giving you your own PlanetSide 2 server.
With the launch of any new major online game, its not uncommon to see our unfortunate gamer brethren in Australia to be left with distant servers that dont provide the best of gaming experiences. Luckily, that will not be the case with PlanetSide 2 and our gaming brothers and sisters should have to put up with a little less lag.
In a recent Twitter post responding to a topic about gauging interest in a server for Australia, SOE boss John Smedley confirmed that the team will be adding an Australian server for the MMOFPS.
@recontradog awesome. Honestly we are just going to bite the bullet and put a server down there.
