Fans of PlanetSide 2 probably had lots of reason to be scared following the latest round of Daybreak layoffs on Friday, and not in the fun way. For those of you who greatly prefer being scared in the fun way, though, the game does now have you covered with the arrival of the Nanite of the Living Dead event in-game. And to compound the terror of this ghoulish season, players will have to deal with the fact that their hunts for pumpkins (including the much larger Galact-O-Lantern) will no longer reward seeds!
Yes, pumpkins will now offer up their fiendish rewards to players directly rather than allowing you currency to buy them; you can’t get the same cosmetic reward twice, though, so each one you get should improve your odds of getting another one. Add in a new seasonal directive and players should have plenty of fiendish fun with the event until November 8th, when it departs with all of its pumpkin goodness.
Nanite of the Living Dead VI: Revenge of the Unsown is coming to a battlefield near you!
All PC servers will come down tomorrow, Wed 10/16, at 12PM PDT (9PM CEST) to bring you the most haunting Halloween update yet. Downtime should last 3 hours.
