Howdy folks. For the past few months, the team has been hard at work overhauling our Construction System. Much of this process was shared across social media, as well as on our site and forums. Today we would like to officially introduce you to FORTIFICATION. Coming May 17, 2023.
Yes, you read that right. You can plan, build, defend, or attack starting Wednesday the 17th.
Along with Fortification, PlanetSide is turning 20 this year! Check out the anniversary activities below.
This update's foundation has always kept these two core values in mind:
This time around we will keep this article brief, as much of the update was discussed in previous articles.
Since first announcing our plans to overhaul construction in January, a great deal of progress has been made. Your feedback from the Public Test server was extraordinarily helpful. Not to mention all of the assistance in finding an assortment of bugs. This has culminated in an update the team is very excited to share.
Many of the new and updated construction items have been discussed in our Update Under Construction article. Please give it a read to get a better understanding of the individual buildings and modules coming with this update.
Along with the construction overhaul, Oshur has also seen quite a few adjustments.
The Oshur section of the April 28th patch notes highlight the upcoming changes.
PlanetSide turns 20 on May 20th! It's been an amazing two decades of ground, air and now sea battles! At Rogue Planet Games we would like to say thank you for the awesome memories and contributions the community has given to the overall experience in game and out of game!
We will also be hosting a DOUBLE XP FOR ALL event starting May 17th through May 21st.
To help celebrate PlanetSide's Golden Birthday, we are releasing PlanetSide 1 and PlanetSide 2 soundtracks. The PlanetSide 2 soundtracks will be broken into faction specific albums. These soundtracks will be available on all major streaming platforms.
To get the party started, here's a sneak peek at an oldie but goodie:
Starting May 17th, and running through June 4th, you will have just over 2 weeks to earn the NS-D Helios, by completing the 20-Year Legacy directives.
A new 20-Year Legacy bundle will be available in the Depot containing a variety of items. Included is a new NS-D Helios which some may notice is an homage to the legendary PS1 Dragon.
Brand new faction based Apex SMGs are also making their way to the Depot.
Be sure to take a peek at the bundle's other offerings. The 20-Year Legacy bundle will be available with the update on May 17th.
In the relative near future, the team will continue to pay close attention to your feedback when Fortification goes live. Updates and patches will continue to roll out over the coming weeks to ensure Fortification is solid.
A little further out, we are planning some fun summer activities. Not much info to share at the moment, but we'll keep you posted. Even further out, there's already preliminary work beginning on PS2's anniversary!
Thanks, and have a good one!
