Michael Henderson (the Lead Designer for PlanetSide 2) said, “Rarely do we get to deliver players an entirely new combat space, and it’s been years since a playspace has been created at this scale. The team has done some amazing work bringing this to fruition, and I think our players are really going to dig it.”
