Normally, escalation of a conflict is kind of a bad thing. In the case of PlanetSide 2, though, the upcoming Escalation update is arguably a very good thing because it brings lots of things sure to excite players. For example, there are the new Outfit-owned Bastion carriers, giving every Outfit a mobile piece of air support and a deployment point. This works hand-in-hand with an expanded set of Outfit resources, giving you access to more air-dropped vehicles, facilities, and even troop carriers.
Players will also be able to take advantage of the new Loyalty system for a given outfit, along with the monthly Outfit Wars that pit player groups more directly against one another. Or you could just chill in the new all-faction social hub of the Sanctuary, welcoming everyone to kick back and relax like friends. You can check out some of the features in the video just below, or you can hop along to the game’s test server and try it out right now if you’re so inclined.
Escalation is inbound! 🌍➡️🌑
A massive thank you to everyone in chat for all the community love on our (#PS2 record-breaking!) livestream today 🙏
