PlanetSide 2 Update Optimizes, Balances, and Adds Festive XP Snowmen

Posted Tue, Dec 17, 2013 by Martuk

PlanetSide 2 rolled out another update this morning that takes aim at improving the games performance and making a significant amount of balance changes to both infantry and vehicles. And when I say significant I mean you will be reading this mountain size pile of patch notes for quite a while.

In addition to the great wall of balance changes, SOE also added a little festive fun to PlanetSide 2 for the holidays with new snowmen, which players can find scattered around Easamir’s frozen wasteland. Blowing them up will get you a hefty chunk of XP. If you want to look festive yourself there’s also an assortment of holiday decals available on the Station marketplace along with a discount sale every day for the next two weeks starting on December 18th.

You can read the very long list of patch notes for the full rundown. Happy reading.
