Coming round to nearly the sixth anniversary of its launch, PlanetSide 2 is set to receive some brand new content in the form of an entire continent (that’s right: not just some islands). Announced via Twitter today, PlanetSide 2’s next continent will be called “Oshur”. Longtime fans will know that this has actually been a part of Planetside’s lore since launch, but is only now getting realized as a traversable land mass.
You can check out the quick teaser below which shows a work-in-progress build of the map. It’s so beta that the water hasn’t even been placed yet. A few threads over on the PlanetSide subreddit have been digging through the info and it seems “Oshur” will not only be putting emphasis on water but air travel. Sounds like quite the game changer.
There is no confirmed date yet, but the map will likely be released before the end of the year.
Today, the team announced PlanetSide 2’s next continent: Oshur.
Oshur will consist of multiple islands and a variety of biomes, and will best be traversed by aircraft.
We’ll be sharing more about the continent as we continue development, so stay tuned!https://t.co/5st2Ud88KE
