Update 04 Goes Live -

PlanetSide 2 players will want to head into the game to check out the big new patch that has just gone live. The update features a great new 'virtual reality' training area for new players to learn the game mechanics.

  • Try before you buy - VR Training Area

    •  ALL weapons, vehicles and attachments are available for players to test out in the NEW VR Training area. Providing soldiers with the most advanced weaponry instruction possible, this combat simulation area will allow thorough testing of firearms and vehicle weaponry prior to taking them into battle.
  • Get ready to rumble!

    • The Flash now seats two! Bring a worthy passenger and charge into battle with proper cover. There's also a new Wraith cloaking module and S12 Renegade shotgun available NOW for the Flash. With new stealth abilities, this Flash upgrade will allow Infiltrators to move completely undetected for a short period of time. 
  • Better tools, better soldiers

    • The respawn screen and map have been merged giving players easier access to the information that they need while deploying. Take note, there's now a manual zoom on the minimap.
  • Passive Cert Gain
    • Just because they need a little R&R doesn't mean players can't continue to stay battle ready.  Players will now gain increased certifications while not in active combat. 
  • And much more:

    • Check the full patch notes to read more about platoon management, increased XP for vehicle kills and updates to Membership!

Read more about the patch in Matt Higby's letter on the PlanetSide 2 forum.
