PlanetSide 2 recently got the Bastion Fleet Carrier, a giant air vehicle. So what's next for the team at Rogue Planet Games? A giant ground vehicle, of course!

Yesterday's dev livestream revealed a number of in-development assets for PS2, including a new SMG, the NS-66 Punisher, and Facility Modules, which will allow outfits to craft and deploy infrastructure upgrades at allied bases. Another cool feature coming for outfits is a log system, which will let members see the history and activity of their outfit, including enlistments, promotions/demotions, and other information.

But the (literally) big news from the stream was the reveal of the Colossus tank, a five-seater that dwarfs previous heavy tanks. Its primary cannon can be charged to unleash a massive armor-piercing shell and it has four additional gun emplacements for close-quarters defense.

All of these new features are scheduled to be dropped in the next update, coming in early June. Prior to that will be a celebration of PlanetSide's 17th anniversary on May 20. Learn more about the Colossus and the rest of the upcoming content on the PS2 site.
