Planetside 2 Character Transfers Between PC & PS4 Possible
Cross-play between the PS4 and PC versions of Planetside 2 was never on the table, but the possibility of character transfers between the two platforms exists, says Sony Online Entertainment.
Speaking to Eurogamer at the SOE Live event over this past weekend, Planetside 2 Creative Director Matt Higby explained that it may be in the cards to have players transfer their characters over from one system to the other.
He said, “Because of the update cadence, and the additional steps you have to go through to be able to release an update on the PlayStation network, we’re not going to be able to keep our servers in sync, so you won’t be able to just play with the same people.
“They might be a week behind in terms of patching, or a day behind or whatever it ends up being, and we can’t really have that. But we’re also talking about having character portability, so a PC character, you could transfer it to PlayStation 4, and then back. The character format’s the same on both, it’s just purely a matter of the server updates.”
It’s not as good as being able to play with your friends on the PS4 while on the PC, but it’s better than nothing.
