If you’re a PlanetSide 2 fan, you might want to listen up. The Shattered Warpgate update is live now on PC, bringing with it a host of new features and gameplay improvements.

The update is set to release for PS4 later this month. This update will introduce new experiences the team is calling Campaigns. Each Campaign introduces major gameplay and environmental changes alongside lore-driven story missions that unfold across multiple chapters. The initial campaign, The Shattered Warpgate, returns players to the frigid tundra of the newly remastered continent of Esamir, where they must contend with the fallout from an environmental cataclysm brought on by the detonation of one of the continent’s Warpgates.

Additional major features introduced in this update including a revamp to Esamir including reworked bases and facilities, new alien flora and skybox improvements, and a deadly electrical storm roaming the battlefield. A new daily mission type is available for daily rewards.

New items like the Icepick melee weapon, Havoc Rockets, and Condensate Grenades are now available as Campaign rewards or purchasable from the in-game Depot.  Social hub improvements include graphical upgrades and the addition of cross-faction text chat.

Rebalancing is introduced where War Asset costs have been overhauled to better reward and incentivize Outfits who participate in base captures. Finally, some key locations on the continent of Indar have been reworked to improve the overall balance and combat flow on the map.
