PlanetSide is celebrating 17 years in Auraxis with a Double XP event which is set to run throughout the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Here are the details.

The team begins by acknowledging their 2020 so far,

“Over the last few months, we launched the Escalation update, the Tactical Loadout update, ran our first two Outfit Wars cycles, broke our own World Record, and announced the Colossus Update - just to name a few. The community response has FAR exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't be more grateful for your loyalty and continued support.”

The anniversary event is live now and will run through May 25. All players will receive double XP. This bonus begins immediately in all server regions for PC and PS4 until 11:59 PDT on May 25.

Additionally, a Memorial Day sale was announced, where all vehicle cosmetics will see 40% off their sticker price on May 25. Patriot Camo and Flare Launchers will also be available on that day, and only for that day.

The team also teases the next content update in the accompanying post,

“Development on the next few updates continues on schedule, and we can't wait to show off our progress on the next dev stream. Stay tuned for confirmation on that date over the next week or so.”
