In a recent update MMOFPS Planetside 2 added two new important features to the already massive game. The first is a new crafting system and the second is the mineral that fuels this crafting system. The mineral is called Cortium and allows players to build all manner of objects in a short space of time. The game's website goes into much more detail, if you want to read up on it.

"Players can summon an Advanced Nanite Transport (ANT) at any vehicle terminal. ANTs are 4-man transports that have mining lasers for harvesting Cortium nodes, which are scattered around the map. The ANT can be deployed at any time, which will reveal access to a building terminal from which you can equip and then place fortifications (at a cost to Cortium)."

The page goes into further detail about the patch, explaining that HIVEs generate victory points and what happens when a faction fully conquers a continent now. Construction adds an interesting new dynamic to the game that is sure to spice up the Planetside 2 scene. You can check out a walkthrough video of this new system below.

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"The initial barrier to entry will be sizeable enough to discourage some gamers, but for those who persist, an experience like no other awaits."
