Sony Online Entertainment today announced the immediate launch of a brand new swamp continent for the award-winning free-to-play MMOFPS game on PC and upcoming PS4 release, PlanetSide 2. Players enlisted to fight for the world of Auraxis, whether they be Terran Republic, Vanu Sovereignty or New Conglomerate, will need to adapt to the increasingly harsh conditions on the new continent, Hossin.

“Hossin is a massive new continent that will introduce an entirely new type of battle experience to PlanetSide 2. With
its swamp-like terrain and natural barriers, players combat skills will
be challenged like never before. Facilities and bases are scattered
throughout, making infantry combat the most important it’s ever been,” said Matt Higby, Creative Director, PlanetSide 2. “Hossin adds an insane element to PlanetSide 2‘s
ground / air combat strategy. We are eager to hear community feedback,
particularly since Hossin will be continuously updated and enhanced for a
long time to come.”
 

Accompanying the release of Hossin are a selecting of other improvements and new features including streamlined process for constructing, finding and joining Outfits. A new Outfit Base Capture mechanic has been introduced, awarding the top contributing Outfit ownership of the base after the battle.

The new Hossin update is now available to play on PC and will launch alongside PlanetSide 2 on PlayStation 4 later this year.
