Planetside 2, one of the premier MMOFPS free-to-play games out right now is getting a new continent for players to fight over. While that’s normally news enough to warrant a story, it’s not the focus of gaming news outlets around the web right now. Instead, the media spotlight is on the fact that the developers have decided to livestream the creation of the new continent!
Every Tuesday at 3pm PT, players will be able to watch the design process of the new continent via Planetside 2’s Twitch channel. Each week a new developer will show off his talents as he contributes to the creation of Hossin, a new continent that is expected to arrive in May.
Here’s the schedule Sony laid out:
March 11 – Hossin Environment Art with Devin “$1.99 Taco Combo” Lafontaine
March 18 – Hossin Base Design with Xander Clauss
March 25 – Hossin Base Design with David “Malron” Bennett
April 1 – Hossin Base Design with Adam “Arclegger” Clegg
If game design interests you, or if you’re just a hardcore fan of Planetside 2, you may want to check out the game’s Twitch channel on those four days to see what it takes to create a new continent.
