PlanetSide 2 Patch Adds VR Training Center

The PlanetSide 2 Forums have details on the new patch that's now live in PlanetSide 2, updating the MMOFPS with a bunch of changes, an increase in passive certification gain, and the addition of new Virtual Reality Training Center where you can test your gear (thanks PlanetSide Universe). Here's word on the training center:

  • This area is accessible through any warp terminal
  • This is a safe test area where you can try every weapon, vehicle, and upgrade available to your empire!
  • Each empire has its own Training area.
  • This area has target dummies for vehicles and infantry that have the same properties as in normal combat.
  • An indoor shooting range with random targets at 10 meter intervals for reflex practice and target recognition is available.
  • An outdoor shooting range with infantry and vehicle targets to train with all manner of weaponry is also available.
  • There is an open area to practice driving or flying with vehicles.

My number one criticism of this game is that it was atrocious for newcomers. Thrown down in the middle of a fight with no clue how to even control their character made many people say "screw this" and quit immediately.

That's because every single first person shooter for the last 15 years or so has had the same default WASD and mouse aiming controls.

If you have never played a first person shooter fair enough, but the game spawns you at the warp gate where you can't die.

Still this VR training is a very nice addition since you can give all of those new weapons in an easy manner and with all of their upgrade options.
