A massive Planetside 2 patch is nearby. Sony Online Entertainment announced on the game’s forum that players are going to experience a server downtime of about 120 minutes that will begin at 9:30 am PST (6:30 pm CET).
The patch notes are too long to write here or even too long to read for that matter. As one reader pointed out on the game’s forum, the patch will probably release by the time you’re done reading through.
PlanetSide 2 though will be celebrating Christmas this year with snowmen scattered across the frozen wasteland of Esamir. These can be destroyed by players for a nice amount of XP and there’s a special reward teased by SOE for those who take down enough of them. There is also a rare “blinged out Golden Snowman” who gives a very exclusive and unique reward.
The rewards though are going to go to only the one who blows it up. Hence, you’ll have to pray that you’re alone in the vicinity when you come across, say the Golden Snowman.
Additionally there’s a new pistol in town and getting a silver medal with it that will unlock a special title. There are new camos and decals available for you to try out as well.
SOE also revealed that they will be hosting a grand sale from December 18 to January 1; where every day a new category will be up for grabs at a 50 percent discount.
You can get new cosmetics or weapons at a cheap price. In addition, all Items of the Day items will be 99SC regardless of their original cost, and Members Only Item of the Day items will be 1SC, so make sure you log in every day and don’t miss out on anything good!
