The long-awaited continent of Oshur is finally online for PC players after a lengthy delay. Players will be able to conquer the new land as soon as they get their bearings, now that PlanetSide 2’s servers are mostly stable.
PlanetSide 2’s long-delayed Oshur continent is officially online today for PC players. The new continent will be accessible to all players on the planet. Read more in detail here: planetside 2.
PlanetSide 2’s new continent of Oshur was not developed in a day, though; in fact, it took the developers at Daybreak’s Rogue Planet Games roughly three years to start active production after the first announcement. For PC gamers, the long wait is finally over, and Oshur is now accessible to battle over.
“Oshur was created with a focus on gameplay variety and logistics. The towering Trident Relays require air support and quick responses, the lattice has deliberate and strategic cutoffs for squad and platoon leaders to pursue, the beachheads and mid-field bases carve a meaningful role for construction, the open savannahs, sandy beaches, and tropical jungles foster vehicle battles and heavy armor usage, and the hand-crafted designer-driven bases create unique and learnable gameplay spaces for hardened infantry veterans. There’s something for everyone with this new island battlefield, regardless of your preferred gaming style.”
The latest patch includes Oshur-related upgrades such as new underwater mechanics, weaponry, and facilities, as well as the second chapter of the Distant Shores campaign, which includes new directions. Reduced friendly fire damage and quicker friendly fire grief fade are among the other adjustments, as well various building quality-of-life modifications and a number of infantry balancing tweaks.
The update concludes with a promise of an upgrade roadmap in February (rather than this month as originally planned) and a hint of a large celebration to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the PlayStation 2.
