Performance, performance, performance Over the game's lifetime, there has been no pain point discussed more often than that of performance. You've seen us attacking this problem from different angles throughout the past year (and the years before that!,) and while we've made significant strides with optimizing much of our underlying infrastructure, there wasn't much left for us to improve upon without some major overhauls first. Our continued quest for improvement has brought us here, after months of work and a coordinated effort from multiple departments throughout the company, we're pleased to announce that DX11 has arrived in PlanetSide 2. To top it all off, the updates give us better tools to diagnose and address performance concerns in the future. Players on all types of...

Outfit News Upgrades For Planetside 2: DX11 and Robot-men(NS fourth faction)

The big talking points.
  • New Respawn System, Spawn Hopping is hopefully outdated with a lot more freedom about how and where you redeploy to (prioritizes under-pop fights with instant respawns/the frontline and after a delay, allows spawning in any owned hex). It also doesn't force you off of over popped fights anymore.
  • HIVES are coming back as a new alert, REFINE AND RELOAD. The idea is that you mine and dump at a centralized set of locations (once full, they move/respawn). The faction that mines/ dump the most, wins and gets access to a Valk/ANT hybrid (called a WASP). When full, HIVEs launch into orbit destroying anything over them. There are always two HIVEs active.
  • The Wasp currently has a chin mining turret, afterburners AND pilot controlled anti-armour rocket pods (on a Valk chassis currently). The idea is to try to introduce a new "variant" vehicles as alert rewards. These would come fully "certed" with...

Hi folks, @ksagamer n'company have made videos look like a lot of fun to make so I spent a few nights collecting some footage and another couple of evenings editing them whilst I was stuck in a hotel.
Although the gameplay is ritual sudoku inducing I did have a LOT of fun with the editing, trying to get smooth transitions, sound synced and reasonable captions. If you've not tried it, I highly recommend it. Next up, find a decent font pack (and learn how to shoot)!

Some call it luck, I call it SKILL

I'm trying to create some videos. You should not expect any high quality content, as I'm still learning to create videos and play the game.
