If you have been following the PlanetSide 2 Twitter & Facebook, you have certainly noticed we’ve been posting quite a bit about two events this week! First, we have the PlanetSide 2: Show Your Allegiance event on Thursday, July 12. Second, we have the PlanetSide Command Center Community Day on Friday, July 13! I’d love to tell you a bit more about both events and I hope you can join us!
PlanetSide 2: Show Your Allegiance!
We’re taking over Floyd’s 99 Barbershop for our beta kick off event! This may seem a bit odd for something as important as beta, and you’re right! The PlanetSide community has been around a long time and we’ve developed some great relationships. Part of the relationship is the great amount of teasing we take from our community.
With this in mind, we’ve picked one of our favorites…the meme of Creative Directory Matt Higby’s promise to not cut his hair until beta was to be announced. You can see many nods to this on our own social media channels and our fansites, like with the Twitter account for Higby’s Hair (who is not too pleased about our event).
We decided to book Floyd’s Barbershop and make sure he got it all chopped off! We hope you will join us for this momentous occasion! Here are the Details!
- When: Thursday, July 12. 4:00PM – 6:00PM
- Where: Floyd’s 99 Barbershop 899 Market St., San Diego, CA 92101
- What else? We’ll be giving away Beta Key cards to everyone who stops by!
Decide to get a haircut with us? You get an Empire-themed dog tag to go with your Beta Key card AND you get entered to win one of the beautiful new Empire T-shirts AND a pair of the PlanetSide 2 Empire shoes! You’ll get to choose your Empire style!
PlanetSide Command Center Community Day
The SOE Team is hosting an open house at the SOE San Diego Campus to support PlanetSide Command Center Community Day! You can come directly to our offices to play PlanetSide 2, talk to the Planetside 2 Development Team, and walk away with some prizes! Not only will be giving Beta Key cards and dog tags to everyone who plays, but we’ll have free pizza and THREE chances to win the special Empire-themed t-shirts and shoes pictured!
Here are the details for Community Day!
- When: Friday, July 13, 12:00PM – 9:00PM
- Where: SOE San Diego office! 8929 Terman Ct., San Diego, CA 92121
- Transit: http://www.sdmts.com/ but only if you need to take buses/trains here. We’ve got parking at the building and on the street for you folks driving!
