Sony Online Entertainment has completed work on the latest PlanetSide 2 update, which revamps the Amerish continent. Originally set to release on Wednesday, the development team took some extra time to add some polish to the continent's new additions, including the Lattice System.

Amerish's Lattice update will feature optimized performance, repositioned base layouts and nine new outposts, three more than previously detailed to Shacknews. The outposts have been optimized to create more room for infantry and vehicle battles, while minimizing spawn camping.

For more on how Amerish's new base layouts look, check out the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      And it is glorious from what I've seen so far. They knocked it out of the park with the base designs.

        The thing I think that makes Amerish so awesome is that it looks like they really took the time to handcraft each base, so you don't have that sort of "cookie cutter" base design you have going on on Indar and Esamir. Hopefully they'll give those other two continents another pass to really make each base/outpost unique.
