Looks like some changes are coming to the playable classes of Sony’s free-to-play MMOFPS title, PlanetSide 2, over the coming months and continuing throughout the year.
Speaking with Shacknews, Mark Higby revealed that the first class to receive an update is the Infiltrator class. He says “he’s going to get some new cloak types, there’s a cloaking type called the ‘Stalker Cloak,’ which basically is a cloak that has no duration. You can stay cloaked forever with it.”
In addition to getting an upgraded cloak, the Infiltrator class will see a buff on it’s melee weapons to complement the Infiltrator’s cloaking ability. Higby goes to say “wieldable melee weapons will be a thing, maybe you’ll have a vibro-sword or katana of some sort that you can use as your primary weapon. So you’ll be able to sneak around more and be able to do more with melee weapons for close-range combat. Those are the cornerstones of the Infiltrator update, for now.”
You can expect the Infiltrator’s class upgrade to go live either later July or August, with the rest of the classes to receive an upgrade throughout the span of one year.
