PlanetSide 2 Updated to Bring DX11 Integration Along with the Refine & Refuel Continent Event
The PlanetSide 2 site has been updated with the latest patch notes that, among other things, brings DX11 integration fully into the game. Developers have said that players should notice performance increases as well as thanks to a number of other technical tweaks.
Other components of today's update:
- Nanite Systems Operatives: "Built to function in the harshest weather conditions and most demanding combat roles, our new Nanite Systems Operatives are here to serve. Players now have the ability to create a robotic character on a new, fourth faction, the Nanite Systems Operatives (or NSO)."
- Refine & Refuel Continent Event: "At the start of the event, two Refineries will spawn toward the center of the map. Players are tasked with harvesting Cortium and depositing it into one of the refineries. When a Refinery is full, it will blast off into orbit, and a new one will spawn at another location."
- Join Combat Revision: "Join Combat now works on a priority system when deciding where to send players."
- Spawn System Revamp: "We have made large revisions to the spawn system that will help filter players into more enjoyable fights, discourage overpopulation as it moves from base to base, as well as allow for more freedom to move around the map."
