PlanetSide 2 Introduces Battle Islands

PlanetSide 2 is still one of the most popular MMO shooters to go live since its release and is drawing tons of attention after the announcement of Battle Islands. According to Shack News, the Battle Islands feature for PlanetSide 2 is hot off the press and will allow all of the hectic chaos that is a match in PlanetSide 2 calm down a little bit with an instanced, smaller version of the game. In the Battle Islands mode, the focus is more of outfit vs. outfit as players are more focused on than the vehicles and environment itself.

According to creative director Matt Higby, “The idea of Battle Islands is, rather than having a full-on 64 square kilometer continent, they’re a little bit smaller.” What I don’t understand is why players wanted a smaller focus but that can be explained by when the game comes to eSports, for MLG players everywhere, they need a chance to make some plays in these online matches instead of just being another number on the battlefield. I personally can’t get enough of seeing forty planes fly over my head and having jeeps ramp up over me while fifty other players are storming across a deep canyon with me.

The first Battle Island being revealed is called Nexus and it will be a revival of the map from the original game. For those that don’t know, Nexus was one of the absolute favorite maps from PlanetSide and it will be a a winter wonderland of death and destruction as you and forty seven other players work much more closely than the original PlanetSide 2 maps and with less craziness. I feel that this is a great move for the game because it’s hard to feel any player power when forty people are above you on the scoreboard because they were in a gunship, spawn camping one of the 100 spawn points. It’s sure to change things a bit and make for some interesting matches, coming ‘soon’.
