Just because you’re in an endless war for territory doesn’t mean you can’t take a moment to celebrate the summer months. That would appear to be the rationale behind the PlanetSide 2 summertime event that’s going on now in the multiplayer shooter.
From now until Saturday, August 31st, PlanetSide 2 players will see the Soldier Soaker sidearm and Water Balloon grenades make a comeback, along with the related Summer Directive that challenges players to score kills with seasonal weapons. There will also be an Independence Day event on July 4th that provides 4x the XP for everyone all day long, along with several seasonal items.
The most recent update to PlanetSide 2 has also made some changes to the Alert Rotation, added a new grenade launcher, and introduced a variety of adjustments to some of the online shooter’s weapons. All of these changes are in the patch notes in the link above.
