PlanetSide 2 creative director talks upcoming updates and additions

Posted on March 25, 2014 AT 11:23am

In a new video, PlanetSide 2 creative director Matt Higby previews some of the upcoming changes ahead for SOE’s FPS MMO, including response-driven balances and a brand new vehicle.

Higby touches upon the upcoming March and April updates detailed more extensively on the PlanetSide 2 Roadmap, such as the soon-to-be-integrated Missions System. The Mission System, as Higby hints at but the Roadmap explores in depth, is a means to eliminate what the developers at SOE describe as “what do I do now?” moments by supplying automated waypoints that lead players to missions (and also supply XP bonuses).

The biggest addition to PlanetSide 2 that’s in the pipeline—and that Higby offers a “sneak peak” at int he video—is the fast-attack aircraft the Valkyrie, which up to four players can ride in: a dedicated pilot, dedicated gunner, and passenger slots on either side of the vehicle.

PlanetSide 2 launched on Windows PC November 2012 and is expected to arrive on PlayStation 4 sometime this year.
