'PlanetSide 2' (ALL) Introduces Directives System

by Rainier on Aug. 5, 2014 @ 10:09 a.m. PDT

PlanetSide 2 takes all the groundbreaking features from the original game – massive multiplayer battles, distinctive empires to rally around, and enormous continents to support intense ground and air combat – and adds features that modern gamers have come to expect out of the FPS and MMO genres.

Across the continents of Auraxis, thousands of players will come together in enormous battles to win control of territory and resources for their empire. With an extensive skill tree and a free-form class-based system, players will be able to customize their soldier, weapons and vehicles to match their play-style, or the needs of their squad, outfit or empire. Battles can last for days or weeks, so players will need to build real alliances and combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With air, ground and seaborne combat, the battles are more intense than ever. 

Various character, vehicle and artillery customization features will be available to players constructing the perfect fighter for their favorite of the three empires: The Terran Republic (the conservative, authoritative nation aiming to reunite the clashing factions), The New Conglomerate (a liberated faction fighting to remaining free) or The Vanu Sovereignty (technophiles seeking to develop and exploit alien technology). Also, an in-depth and adaptive class system – with ranks, unlockable traits and skill sets – will give players complete control over their online warrior.

SOE implemented a brand new prestige / achievement-style system for all  PlanetSide 2 players:  Directives. Whether a new player or a veteran, Auraxian soldiers can now easily pursue multi-tiered goals and rewards to elevate (and show off!) their in-game expertise.

The  PlanetSide 2  Directives system includes:

  • Showcase Your Honors - Build up your Directive Score and show off your prowess with others!
  • Ramp Up Stats - Earn points with each Directive Tier completion (5 per Directive Tree)
  • Build Your Arsenal - Obtain exclusive Auraxium prestige weapons and appearance items upon each Directive Tree completion
  • Choose Your Direction - Directives reinforce all roles available in game; from aircraft to tanks to grunts to generals, there are options for every soldier!  

New Directives will be added frequently.
