Planet side 2 will bring its new continent of Oshur to PlayStation 4 next week, March 23rd. This update brings the new continent, new water gameplay, underwater weapons, facilities and campaign content.
The update is huge and has been available to PC gamers for a few weeks now. The developers were able to further refine the experience based on player data. Now the new continent will be available on PlayStation 4, and to celebrate the launch, the team at Rogue Planet Games will be auto unlocking the continent from Wednesday 23rd March to Sunday 27th March.
If you haven’t had a chance to play Expedition Oshur update yet, it brings a new Dimension 2 PlanetSide 2. You can discover the islands of Oshur and their new tropical environment that can also provide you with cover as advantageous attack locations. There are opportunities for construction sites if you want to protect progress, and you have plenty of open fields and beaches if you want to organize heavy armored battles.
You can start with your faction’s flotilla, which now has heavy anti-aircraft turrets to help you travel the waters. At its heart is the new water gameplay, as you travel underwater to your destination and the new water mechanic lets wheeled vehicles float on the surface and your aircraft can actually travel smoothly underneath. You can also cross the seabed on foot or in a profiled vehicle, but there are corals and other structures that may hinder your journey. These new environments will likely take some getting used to.
Of course, in addition to new underwater mechanics and vehicles, there are also a number of new underwater weapons that you can unlock through the campaign and other means. Some of the new facilities include outposts and relays, but you can use them to your advantage if you can protect them.
