'PlanetSide 2' (ALL) Celebrates Fifth Anniversary With Double XP Week, Bundles, Decal

by Rainier on Nov. 17, 2017 @ 4:00 p.m. PST

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.

Dedicated, resilient, and loyal are just a few of the words that describe those who have committed their time to the battlefields of Auraxis. Each and every soldier has fought valiantly beside their empire throughout the relentless battle, for what has now been five long years - that's certainly something to be proud of.

In honor of this momentous occasion, we have a slew of special activities for you to take part in!
