Test Server Update, Chapter 2 of The Shattered Warpgate and Eight-Year Anniversary Bundle

Posted by:  Charoplet 18.11.2020

Developers update Planetside 2 Test server with new improvements that soon will be added to the Live servers. In preparation for eight-year anniversary on Nov. 20, Chapter 2 of The Shattered Warpgate was added to PTS, along with the changes and fixes listed below:
  • Fixed issues related to the game using the incorrect resolution and window sizes on launch and when tabbing out of the game.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes prevent particle trails from playing when a weapon is fired.
  • Fixed an issue where gaining directive progress quickly would cause game performance to drop drastically.
  • Fixed a long-standing issue where lumifiber would appear black when it is not actively being illuminated.
  • Flak explosives should no longer cause drastic framerate drops due to excessive particles.
  • Sanctuary has been updated with new Warpgate Terminal visuals, and more terminals available closer to spawn-in points.
  • Players will be able to customize Drop Pod cosmetics by visiting the Nascent Expeditions shop on Sanctuary.
  • Tracked missions and campaign events now show a new indicator that makes it easier to discern.
  • Made various user experience improvements to campaign and mission screens.
  • Reclaimed MBTs now use empire specific colors for their main cannon weapons.
  • NSO Frag Grenade no longer uses NC's Frag Grenade description.
In Chapter 2 of The Shattered Warpgate it seems you do not need to use a special implant to see campaign missions, missions will be finished automatically after you complete all tasks, so you do not need to deploy to the Sanctuary to get a new mission. Still, some campaign missions are stuck to Esamir although some missions could be made on all continents, so you could do them wherever you want.

Also was added a special mission so you can get a cool-looking Anniversary decal and reskinned NS-45 Pilot.

After the new update will hit live servers all players could buy Starseeker's Eight-Year Anniversary Bundle with 7999 DBG Cash. This year Anniversary Bundle will contain these items:

    Hope I will live enough to see reskins for faction-specific weapon models...
