PlanetSide 2 August update deploys Valkyrie and squad mentorship Ribbons

Sony Online Entertainment has deployed its August update with many of the additions previously discussed at SOE Live.


Sony Online Entertainment has prepared PlanetSide 2's August update. While that may mean a few balance tweaks and some bug fixes, this month's update also introduces the long-awaited Valkyrie vehicle.

The developers go into full detail on the Valkyrie in a new 'making of' video, which can be seen below. It will act as a transport for up to six soldiers. It will have a front-facing turret, but will also have some openings for soldiers to freely fire at anything within their sights.

The dev team also packed this update with some of the mentorship ribbons and medals that had previously been discussed with Shacknews during our chat at SOE Live. For more on today's update, be sure to check out the PlanetSide 2 forums.

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?
