New PlanetSide 2 Update Expedition: Oshur Out Now

Today, Rogue Planet Games launched Expedition: Oshur for PlanetSide 2, the award-winning massively multiplayer online first-person shooter game currently available on PC and PlayStation 4.

The new island archipelago of Oshur can host up to 900 combatants at once and is the first large-scale PlanetSide 2 map release since 2014. This new update also introduces water mechanics, two new facility archetypes, new weapons and cosmetics, and the last chapter of a multi-month “campaign” event.

TWO MAJOR FACILITIES

Two new base archetypes, called “Facilities” are introduced: the Interlink Outpost and Trident Relay. The Interlink Outpost is a small, cover-dense infantry arena with narrow points of entry and exit. The Trident Relay is a tall spire with combat taking place high above the seabed, aircraft are required to reach and assault this facility.

WATER-BASED WARFARE

Functional water comes to PlanetSide 2 for the first time, allowing for a new dimension of gameplay above and beneath.

Every vehicle, player, and projectile has been re-engineered to work with these new mechanics.

CAMPAIGN MISSIONS

The last chapter of the second Campaign focuses on the return to Oshur, an island evacuated in the early days of the Auraxian War. This chapter will bring players to hidden locations around the map and help players acclimate to the new water mechanics.

UNDERWATER WEAPONS

Players can now unlock four new underwater infantry weapons, including the UBR-100 Frogman, an underwater assault rifle.
