    Over the past few months we’ve been focused heavily on performance and stability post DX11 update on PC, and gearing up for our big (now released!) New Soldier update on PS4. With those initiatives complete, we figured that now would be a good time to talk about the next leg in PlanetSide 2’s ongoing development.

    Toward the end of Summer we began making a serious commitment toward bettering the new-player experience. We still have loads of new players coming to the game each and every day, and long-time players know how brutal this game can be to a fresh recruit. To that end, we’ve been working toward a more satisfying first experience in hopes that those new players are excited to come back, and stick around long enough to eventually becom…

    Today's game update has brought a significant amount of content to PlanetSide 2 including DX11 integration, the Nanite Systems Operatives faction, the Refine and Refuel Continent Event, and more! Read on for a rundown:

    DX11 Integration Over the game's lifetime, there has been no pain point discussed more often than that of performance.

    You've seen us attacking this problem from different angles throughout the past year (and the years before that!), and while we've made significant strides with optimizing much of our underlying infrastructure, there wasn't much left for us to improve upon without some major overhauls first.

    Our continued quest for improvement has brought us here, after months of work and a coordinated effort from multiple depar…

    Nanite Systems is finally ready to unveil its line of remote-infantry combat units, called Nanite Systems Operatives, which are now available for use by each faction on a contractual basis. These combat units are manned by qualified Nanite Systems staff members who have gone through rigorous training and vetting. Staff members operate these units remotely out of the numerous Nanite Systems facilities located throughout and in-orbit over Auraxis. The robotic proxies are operated in shifts, and all Nanite Systems personnel work humane schedules.


    Each time an Operative enters a new zone or continent, they will be put on assignment for the faction with the lowest population - these contracts always go out to the empire that has lost the most s…

    Hey there folks,

    As you probably know, the PlanetSide 2 team has been working very hard for quite some time on a sizeable game update. We’ve got good news – tomorrow, the New Soldier Game Update will finally be going live.

    The most significant part of this update is the change to PlanetSide 2’s renderer, which has been upgraded from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11. It also includes the new Nanite Systems Operatives faction, and a new alert focused on delivering cortium to rocket launch sites which will allow you to win access to the Wasp air vehicle for your faction in a future update. We’ve wrapped all of this up with a number of other improvements that you can read about in the patch notes, which will be available later on.

    Acquisition: Rebirth. June 12th, 2850.

    The first sensation I felt was being enveloped in sublime warmth, followed by a sharp intake of cold air. Then I awoke, and the panic set in. The TR had come for me.

    In the few moments it took the rebirthing chamber to open, I apparently clawed at an invisible assailant, still clutching at my chest where the chainblade should have been. When I emerged, surrounded not by a team of TR hitmen, but by a team of NC scientists, the gravity of the situation became clear to me.

    I had been killed.

    The details of the attack came back to me slowly, and then all at once. I had watched Felix die. I had watched Sam die. Security personnel whose names I still can’t remember laid their lives down to protect me, but they all h…

    Hello Auraxians!

    PlanetSide Arena was announced today, and I know there are many questions about PlanetSide 2 and the future of our game.

    The PlanetSide 2 Development Team remains dedicated to developing, supporting, and improving PlanetSide 2. Our content plans for 2019 include the upcoming continent Oshur, the Nanite Systems Operatives faction, and more. This game remains our focus and our priority.

    The main difference going forward is that the PlanetSide Arena team is also using our Forgelight engine, which means the work they do, and the improvements and upgrades they make, can also come over to PlanetSide 2. For example, the port to the DirectX 11 renderer is going to be a huge improvement, which is already priming PlanetSide 2 for bette…

    To Advance and Protect Humanity. August 30th, 2846.

    Calvin Clay took a deep breath as he boarded the Galaxy transport and took a seat in the last row with his wife and infant daughter. Once they were belted, strapped, and buckled, he closed his eyes. He tried to shut out his fear, focusing on his breathing, listening to the hum of the ship. His wife, Mari-Dee, held their daughter in her arms, but adjusted to place a comforting hand on Calvin’s leg. “It’ll be ok.”

    The pilot’s voice came crunching through the intercom, and the Galaxy’s V-TOL engines roared to life in preparation for take-off. Calvin fought the urge to be sick. With his eyes still shut tight, hands clutching the armrests, the Galaxy lurched into the air, shuddering at it ascende…

    Hello Auraxians,

    It's been a while since I’ve written an official Producer’s letter, but I wanted to take a moment to address current events and our plans for the PC version of PlanetSide 2. I usually prefer to communicate with the community via less formal methods, like Twitter and Reddit. But given the recent events tied to our Halloween 2018 update, I want to address a few things about what went wrong and how we plan on making right. In addition to that, I would also like to share a little bit about the direction PlanetSide 2 is headed as we approach our 6th anniversary. For now, we’ll leave the topic of the PS4 version of the game and issues we have been battling on that front for another day, but know that they are on our radar.

    A Revelation. February 2nd, 2845.

    As Henry Briggs walked through the main entrance of the Vanu Advanced Materials Laboratory, the receptionist smiled and gave his customary greeting.

    “Good morning, Dr. Jessop.”

    Henry smiled in return as he walked across the room and into the lift. “That remains to be seen, Edward. But here’s to hoping.”

    As far as the employees from the Advanced Materials Lab knew, Henry, now well over 200 years old, was Dr. Anthony Jessop – a scientist with an uncanny knack for understanding the alien Vanu technology that the Lab had become so famous for working with. He’d been with them for the last decade, and was a well regarded and influential member of the AMat Lab.

    An audio recording left on board the Grand Venture. Time-stamped February 11th, 2738.

    98.3 years. It’s been a long wait since humanity’s fateful trip through the wormhole. Now, 34 hours beyond the moment the wormhole leading back to Earth should have opened again, we still sit, collectively staring into empty space where the anomaly should have occurred. Nothing has happened. There is no way home.

    After the trials Auraxis has subjected us to, the promise of returning to Earth was a dream held by many, though I suppose by now I’m the only one left that remembers what Earth was really like. It’s sad to think about really – all they have left of Earth are the holovids and a debased shadow of the TR. These are empty reminders.

    Yesterday, the PlanetSide 2 team announced the game's next continent: Oshur.

    Oshur will consist of multiple islands that will harbor a wide variety of biomes including crystalline forests, tropical jungles, desolate sands, and even underground cave systems.

    This wide range of terrain will include less bases than a typical continent, and will function to encourage a more logistical style of play. The unique islands will best be traversed by aircraft, which will put an emphasis on the importance of air combat. Construction will help you take control of the varied land, and will also be an instrumental part of winning battles for your faction.

    With the Critical Mass update comes a major revision of the way continents are fought over and conquered. When one faction has refined enough cortium and taken control of enough territory, that faction triggers an alert which signifies the impending domination of a continent. If the triggering faction wins the alert, they will conquer the continent and call in an armada of Bastion Fleet Carriers to rain destruction upon their enemies.

    One of the driving motivators of revitalizing the continent locking system is to encourage more strategy and competitive spirit in PlanetSide 2. Prior to this update, locking a continent was not only confusing for many players, but also happened abruptly, and often times without direct influence from the playe…

    In an effort to foster more impactful fights over continents, and create a stronger sense of accomplishment when conquering one, the Critical Mass update later this month brings with it some major revisions to how continent locking works. Most of the inbound changes center around the Victory Point system, which has been revisited to create more straightforward and achievable goals while emphasizing the strategic importance of territory control.

    Previously, the VP system acted as a sort of checklist where factions would complete various objectives which then rewarded points to that faction. Earning these points was somewhat removed from the moment to moment experience, and would often reward factions for what they’ve done in the past, instea…

    The newest addition to the Nanite Systems export family of weapons is the NSX Tengu. This mischievous SMG is defined by its automatic firemode that releases four pellets per shot, perfect for dispensing of close quarters adversaries. From the hip, the weapon has a wider spread, and while aiming down sights, a built-in smart choke narrows the pellet spread for engaging mid-range targets.

    As we move through the new year, we wanted to share our vision of the combined arms experience in PlanetSide 2, and outline some of the elements we'll be focusing on to get there. This post covers the broad strokes, and will (hopefully!) help create a clear dialog surrounding the combined arms experience.

    In PlanetSide 2, we view combined arms as the way in which vehicles, infantry, and territory interact with one another. Ideally, that relationship should be a fun and engaging experience for all parties. Whether you're in a vehicle or on foot, we want you to enjoy fighting one another. We also want you to feel integrated into the territory, as well as the Meta components of the game.

    Implant System Revamp

    February 18, 2017 by Bloodhit111

    The implant system has been completely revamped from the ground up and we’ve tried to remove frustrations associated with the old system, while creating a new experience that feels rewarding to pursue and participate in. A few of the important changes:

    • Old implants are being removed
    • New Implants are being introduced
    • How you recycle/upgrade implants has changed
    • Energy is no longer required to use them
    • There is now an additional implant slot so two may run at the same time

    Implants no longer require Energy to function. Any existing Chargers you have will be converted into ISO-4.

    Your old implants will no longer be usable and can be converted into ISO-4 to utilize in the new Implant system.

    There is now a second Implant slot available and you may mix…

    This time of year, the snow on Esamir brings even more challenge to the battlefield with the return of the enemy Snowmen! Of course, these balls of ice aren’t just there for decoration; they grant XP when you kill them.

    On the less snowy continents, you may find Stonemen rather than Snowmen, an equally challenging – and rewarding – festive foe! On all continents, beware the GOLDEN Snowmen! (Though, while you should be aware, don’t be afraid to take them on – there’s XP and a prized piece of loot in it for you if you do!).

    In addition to these new foes, you can get your squad in the holiday spirit by picking up special hats and weapons in the Depot. Holiday hats come in ES and NS versions, and weapons include the Icikill Knife and the Snowbal…

    Soldier, it’s time your weapon and helmet had an upgrade. Luckily, we’ve put together some new bundles in the Depot to help get you a new look at a good price.

    The Ravenous Bundle includes special skinned versions of the NS R3 Swarm, the NS-61 Emissary, and NS-44L Blackhand. It is available in the Depot on PC for 2,999 .

    This bundle is a limited time offer, so if you’re sitting around thinking “well, maybe…,” you might just miss your shot. It doesn’t work on the battlefield, and it doesn’t work in the Depot either.

    Whether you’re part of the New Conglomerate, the Terran Republic, or the Vanu Sovereignty, there is a bundle of Faven Helmets for you! Each bundle contains seven Faven-made helmets. Here are the three bundles:

    The battlefields of Auraxis are changing!

    Cortium, a powerful new mineral, has recently been unearthed. This limited resource allows for the near-instantaneous deployment of player-built fortifications. The discovery of Cortium has prompted the deployment of Advanced Nanite Transports (ANTs), which harvest the mineral and convert it into material that can be used in the field.

    A new “weapon” has also arrived on the battlefield thanks to the rise of Cortium. Hardline Interference Volume Emitters (HIVEs) generate Victory Points over time, as long as they are fueled by nearby Cortium silos and have an active power core within. Destroying an enemy HIVE will not only halt their ability to generate Victory Points, but also steal the power core wit…

    This wikia has a blogging option, that't interesting.

    I'll just make this short and sweet, I want to talk about gaming and behavior. I realize this is a message that most will ignore, but I want to speak up about it anyway. All too often I see so much hate on the internet. The protection and anonymity of a screen and a keyboard is more powerful than I think most of us realize. Without the human connection of a face, a name, or a voice we make assumptions and draw faulty chains of logic that lead to equally faulty conclusions about the people we interact with. As a result it becomes very easy to verbally abuse and mistreat people in a way that may be contrary to your nature.

    It is sad to see people thriving off of this kind of behavior, ruthl…

    Ice, Ice, Auraxians.

    In the middle of a war, the last thing you need is another enemy. But, this holiday season, that’s exactly what’s upon you. Of course, these enemies are a bit…icier…than ones you may have encountered before. On Essamir, there are Snowmen on the battlefield that grant XP when you kill them! On the less snowy continents, you may find Stonemen waiting to take you on, and on all continents, beware the GOLDEN Snowmen! (Though, while you should be aware, don’t be afraid to take them on – there’s XP and a prized piece of loot in it for you if you do!).

    In addition to these new foes, you can get your squad in the holiday spirit by picking up holiday hats and weapons in the Depot. Holiday hats come in ES and NS versions, and weapons include the Icik…
