SOE gives a sneak peak at one of PlanetSide 2's new Battle Islands.
Sony Online Entertainment has revealed the newest addition to PlanetSide 2, Battle Islands. These new maps feature 48x48 player combat, huge arenas, and vehicles. The Islands are supposed to mimic the live version of the game while providing a smaller map for people to fight on. Just think Halo with five times as many players battling at a time.
Battle Islands Maps signal a significant addition to PlanetSide 2, which usually features battles of thousands of people at a time. SOE released a teaser video of one of the Battle Maps, which shows off various choke points, vehicles, and rooms in which players can fight it out.
No date has been given for the release of the new maps, other than a statement that they are "in development." In addition, Sony Online Entertainment is also developing user-generated missions for PlanetSide 2.
