The highlight of the PlanetSide 2 Escalation update is the Outfit Wars endgame tournament system that will allow dedicated outfits to qualify for monthly GvGvG tournaments on the new Desolation asteroid map. This will allow players to travel off-planet for the first time, and the new War Asset system will allow guilds to collect resources that can be crafted into assets including:

  • Bastion Fleet Carrier: This massive interplanetary fleet carrier features mannable turrets, ship-mounted artillery cannons, an interceptor launch platform, and mobile vehicle respawn points
  • Steel Rain: A coordinated platoon drop pod assault onto a target location
  • Citadel Shield: A sturdy projectile-blocking bubble shield the size of a small outpost
  • A.N.V.I.L.: Airdrop a ground vehicle of your choice on demand
  • Orbital Satellite Uplink: Radio in an Orbital Strike anywhere on the battlefield

“We are excited to provide the PlanetSide 2 community with an expansion that rewards our most dedicated players; past, present and future,” said Andy Sites, Executive Producer on the PlanetSide Franchise for Rogue Planet Games. “The new seasonal tournaments for dedicated Outfits, Cross-Empire Social Zone, and a meta-changing War Asset System add even greater depth and scale to PlanetSide 2’s unique all-out planetary warfare gameplay.”
