PlanetSide 2 Surf and Storm update is all about underwater combat


Rogue Planet Games has announced the launch of PlanetSide 2’s Surf and Storm update on PC, expanding on the underwater combat that was first introduced to the MMOFPS earlier this year.

Here is a summary of the main highlights:

  • Introducing the Corsair, the PS2’s first naval vehicle

    • The Corsair is an 8-seater vehicle where teammates can spawn and includes a driver, of them top guns, and five additional seats. Passengers can launch themselves out of the Corsair using its catapult system to enter the fray.

    • The weapons on the Corsair are similar to those of other common vehicles from Nanite Systems and include the M20 Basilisk, M60 Bulldog and Dingo ML-6 alternatives, and Empire-Specific Basilisk, for starters.

  • Improved submarine warfare on Oshur

    • Includes a host of new underwater bases, an expanded arsenal of weapons that can be used underwater, new scuba gear that allows for more mobility, and new “Seaposts” to battle that allow your team to make corsairs appear.

  • Outfit Wars returns to 1v1 format on a new map, Nexus

    • Features a team vs. team in the new format. The winning outfit gets bragging rights, cosmetics, and a special statue on display at Sanctuary.

    • The 1v1 format also allows outfits to be pitted against rivals within their own faction to prove who really wears their faction the hardest.

    • The new map is a mountainous battle island covered in snow. Jagged cliffs, freezing forests and glacial canyons hide nine new bases for teams to battle for control of territory.

It’s not yet known when the Surf and Storm update will hit PlanetSide 2 on PlayStation 4/5, but if previous updates are any indication, it may be a while. In the meantime, you can read the full patch notes here and watch the Surf and Storm trailer below.
