We caught up with the Planetside 2 team during SOE Live to talk about the game's new Hossin region, the Battle Map Nexus, and the future of PS2. Read on for more info.
The next major addition on the test server is the battle island Nexus. The battle islands are being created to progress the eSports initiative. While the continents are 64 sqaure km the battle islands are only 4 square kilometers. They contain only two warp gates connecting two continents. This means the battle islands will only be available to two empires at any one time. They have 9 contestable facilities and are designed for 48 v 48 in e-sports but are open to hundreds versus hundreds in the MMO. For the MMO game battle islands and continents will connect together to form a sort of lattice system. Each continent will connect to another continent and two battle islands. Hossin will lie in the middle and act as a gateway between the three other continents.
