There’s more development arriving for PlanetSide 2, and one of the plans includes a version of Sanctuary to serve as a social hub. A cross-faction social hub, even, with vendors, lore snippets, and even a chance to chat with members of other factions via both text and voice chat. It’s part of the ongoing development roadmap available on the official site, which also includes further development refinements for the new player experience as well as loading and optimization improvements.
In addition, the team is planning out what is currently being referred to as the mandate system, a way of generating time-limited objectives on different timescales that have concrete clear conditions and immediate rewards. The ultimate goal is something that helps direct player behavior and makes the game feel more generous without overburdening currency systems. Check out the full roadmap to get a sense of where the game is heading in the future.
