PlanetSide 2, developed by Sony Online Entertainment, released an updated Developer Roadmap that outlines all of their planned updates to the popular MMOFPS. The roadmap includes planned content releases, revamped systems, performance updates, and a lot more. Now don’t get all greedy on SOE and expect it all at once, the roadmap outlines the next 6 months worth of planned development in PlanetSide 2.
Looking through the Jan – June roadmap they’ve offered up it’s no wonder PlanetSide 2 and SOE will likely be the breakout stories of 2014. Compare what SOE has offered up with their roadmap to the slim and mysterious bug fix list that DICE has provided for Battlefield 4, the difference really is night and day. It’s quite refreshing to see a developer open their development plans to the public, it’s especially refreshing to see this renewed sense of transparency that Dave Georgeson and John Smedley have brought to the table.
Here are just a few of the dozens of planned improvements coming to PlanetSide 2 in the first half of the year. Be sure to head over to www.PlanetSide2.com/roadmap to check out the entire list for yourself.
- Outfit Recruiting – Rolling with an outfit in PlanetSide 2 is really making the most of what the game has to offer in a number of different ways, so we want to make the process of finding an outfit and finding new recruits easier for everyone involved.
- New Continent: Hossin – Adding a brand new continent: Hossin, a swamp covered continent.
- Continent Locking – Continent Locking (or the “Continental Lattice” in the post-lattice era) is on the horizon and will hopefully enhance the feel and depth of PlanetSide 2‘s overall metagame significantly.
- Outfit Base Capture – If your outfit is the top contributor to a base capture, we’ll identify the facility/outpost as “belonging” to your outfit.
