The head of Sony Online Entertainment has revealed that they're planning to make their upcoming MMO, PlanetSide 2, region free. This means that people can play with others, no matter where they're based in the world.
The news broke via John Smedley's own Twitter account, where he stated "We've come up with a plan to allow ALL players to play on any servers they want. More details to follow."
This comes as good news to gamers who were fearing the upcoming free-to-play game would have servers that may be segregated between European and North American servers. This would have prevented people in these regions from playing with each other.
