Patch day has arrived once again for PlanetSide 2 to bring more changes for the warring armies of Auraxis with Game Update 13 (GU13). One of the big ticket items in today’s update is a massive revamp of the Esamir region, which activates the lattice system and includes enhancements and, in some cases, complete changes to facilities and outposts to improve the gameplay flow. Two additional outposts have also been added with The Rink and Rime Analytics.
In addition to a number of other changes to Esamir, GU13 also includes several balance changes and bug fixes, Interactive Tutorial changes, improved respawn logic for lattice-enabled continents, XP changed for battle log outs and suicides, several infantry updates and improvements, and much more.
As announced last week, the new implants originally scheduled to release with GU13 was removed to undergo another pass in development to address balance and pay-to-win concerns. You can peruse the lengthy patch notes for the full rundown.
