After the desertic wasteland of Indar, Sony Online Entertainment revealed the second continent for the free-to-play online shooter PlanetSide 2 – Esamir.
Esamir is a cold and desolate place where ice is the main theme. There are some changes to this continent, including the base capture methods that will be different from Indar. Shield generators won’t be disabled as easily, and players can also expect new weapons and certifications, as well as some user interface improvements. The studio will now resume work on the third continent, Amerish, which is rumored to have a little bit more vegetation to it.
In another note, Sony Online announced a partnership with Innova Systems to bring PlanetSide 2 to Russian-speaking territories, also under a free-to-play model. Territories include Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, as well as the disputed territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
