PlanetSide 2 – New Alert Feature

leave a comment »

I play PlanetSide 2 a free MMOFPS PC. They have an aggressive patch and new feature schedule, we are constantly getting new toys and ways of playing. One of the latest and by far my favorite new feature is the Alerting system. Alerts are a way to get players to play on different continents within Auraxis (the planet this war is being raged on). The idea of an Alert is every few hours there will be shown on your screen something that reads like ‘Go Defend Esamir!’. Your Faction (TR, VS or NC) now have around 2 hours to try and take over Esamir. Your reward for completing the mission is XP, the total you receive is a percentage based on the amount of territory your faction owns in the continent the alert said to go to, even the losers get XP.

The reason I love the alerts is due to the battles that ensue, these have been the largest and most fun battles that I have had since I started playing this game.  When an entire outfit gears up to go RAGE it is a blast. Armor columns, infantry, air support, all hell just breaking loose. Image

So if you do not own PlanetSide 2, you should. The maps are massive, and the more people the better. Grab a friend. log on and play. If you are also interested in joining a clan, check out the one I belong to, grab the TS information from the website and hop on, it’s a small growing clan looking for some cool people to play with. Just don’t tell them you heard it here 🙂
