PlanetSide 2 is feeling a little bit gassy

PlanetSide 2 April Fools

Some stuff is going down in PlanetSide 2 tomorrow as it joins the legions of games attempting to make you guffaw during April Fools, the biggest day in PR and marketers’ calendars. Auraxis has a gas problem. There’s pressure building in the bowels of the planet and everyone is being warned to keep an eye out for unusual activity.

The planet needs to fart. 

On top of world farting, there’s a new piece of headgear that you can buy and use only for tomorrow. 

“Field testing for an experimental combat system will begin on April 1st and be deployed for one day only. The Strategic Combat Headgear with Navigational Offensive Zergtech (SCHNOZ) will grant players a 50% XP boost when worn. Purchased in the armory, it will only provide the bonus April 1st, so be sure to make use of it Wednesday!”

Drivers will also be able to acquire two unique horns for their vehicles. They’ll only be available tomorrow, but you’ll be able to use them all year. Will they play fart noises? I don’t know, probably?

This stuff is a waste of time. They need to quit throwing so many resources at holidays and seasonal gimmicks and instead work on improving the core game. Maybe even finish one of the two dozen half-assed features they implemented.

You sound like a wonderful person to hang out with.

I'm just bitter at this point. Development has slowed down to the point where the last memorable things of the past 6 months were shooting random pumpkin and snowmen spawns for achievements.

Star Wars Galaxies was at pretty much the same point in the later stages of its lifecycle only going from one grindfest of a holiday to the next.

I'd rather see them spend their resources on lasting elements of the game. Areas that need attention instead of spending the time on something temporary that ends up breaking something else in the process.

Ravenhawk is spot on. Basic game mechanics remain broken, even after two years of empty promises, cheats are running rampant, including high BR, long term players who have been caught cheating only to be allowed to continue to play. There is no metagame as redeployside and the lattice system as it is have ruined what little strategic element remained and the game has become just a massive infantry farm for those in vehicles.
