What’s today? Thursday? No it’s Friday alright, but it sure feels like a Thursday to me. SOE is helping me ease into this weekend with the announcement late last night that Planetside 2 would be holding a double XP weekend event starting at 9AM PST today!
According to a tweet from the official Planetside 2 Twitter account, the double XP is “a Thank You to players for sticking it out through some launch week server instability.” Aww how nice of them. Granted we should never feel like we are entitled to XP weekends due to server instability, but it’s always a nice gesture when a company recognizes those that continue to support them even throughout inconsistencies in service.
If you are new to Planetside 2 go ahead and check out our ongoing Planetside 2 Class Guide video series, those should help you grasp what role(s) you wish to play so you aren’t stuck running around like a flailing headless futuristic cyber-chicken. So go ahead and don your faction-specific spacesuit and hop into your favorite mode of transportation (mines my trusty desert camo Vanguard). Lets get this sci-fi frag party started!
