Early this year we were told that a mobile app would be coming to iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices to compliment PlanetSide 2. Well today news was released on Appburst’s website, the developer of the app, detailing the features gamers can expect to find in this handheld metagame.
First gamers will have access to skills, stats, achievements, videos, and performances graphs. The graphs will showcase player’s ranks and their current stats as well as vehicles, weapons, and bases.
But the big announcement from this app is the “near real time” interactive map and voice chat.
Hardcore gamers will find the ability to log into the game revealing resources, territory control, and facilities all on the map which will update by showing any changes to the battle.
On top of this gamers will have access to chat with their fellow squad mates and relay information and tactics using the voice chat.
For an app, this is by far the most impressive string of features we have seen compliment a game. Only time will tell if this will be valuable to gamers and more importantly, whether the current unknown cost is worth it.
