PlanetSide 2 New Player Experience Went Live Last Thursday
PlanetSide 2 New Player Experience Went Live Last Thursday.
According to PlanetSide 2’s revised new player experience, it’s been revealed that last Thursday was the day of its launch.
After maintenance, players were greeted with an entirely new character creation screen. Even veterans will use a new character select screen with new UI, audio, faction introductions, FX, and lighting. The revised tutorial predictably covers all the basics, such as capturing and defending bases, switching classes, reading the map, and more.
Post-tutorial, you’ll find yourself in a “faction embassy” to get a handle on your equipment, after which you’ll head, uh, planetside to report to your field commander in a room above your faction’s warp gate. He’ll set you forth on your path to real action with the help of the mission system to let you achieve simple goals along the way.
Default equipment has also been tweaked, and there are more UI options available and many other changes to graphics, weapons, and vehicles. More new player experience improvements are still on the drawing board, as well as a suitably spooky Halloween event.
