PlanetSide 2 Weekly Update Plans

The PlanetSide 2 Forums announce that SOE's MMOFPS sequel will begin receiving weekly updates beginning next Wednesday (thanks VG247). Here's word:

What does this mean for you?

Well for starters, it means we'll be more rapidly respond to bugs & balance issues in the game without having to rely on hotfixes as much. We'll also be able to release new content more frequently and consistently. Each individual update will be smaller and more focused, with fewer moving parts that can break, which we hope will greatly decrease the number of bugs being introduced when we update. This doesn't mean that we're not still working on bigger features and larger content pieces, we definitely are and they'll be slotted into the weekly schedule as they're ready to be released. As part of this change we are also going to be updating and playtesting on Test server a lot more often in the future, as always, your playtesting assistance and feedback on the test server will be greatly appreciated.

One final note, the first couple of these weekly updates are going to be a bit smaller than what you can expect to see later on, as we're still shaking off the holiday cobwebs and getting used to the new development processes.

We've got a really terrific slate of new features and content lined up for 2014 that we can't wait to get out to you guys, it's going to be an amazing year for Planetside 2.

Haven't played for awhile but I really enjoyed it for a short amount of time. The problem was then a lack of a sustainable goal. After gaining bases and losing bases not over days, but sometimes hours or less, I just lost the feeling of having a point to the game, other then shooting the other guy. Looking for an overall goal more then that so I want to shoot the other guy for a reason... not just join zerg and roll, get zerged back, rinse, repeat.

If that part of the game somehow develops more, I could look past a lot of the other bugs and balance issues because it IS fun to be in some of the monster battles that take place. One of my best gaming moments last year was watching a battle from a mountainside at night. I didn't even take part, just watched. The light show was amazing!
