Sony Online Entertainment has this week announced that it is planning to start rolling out weekly updates to its Planetside 2 multiplayer online game starting from January 15th 2014.
SOE has made a number of alterations, performance tweaks and bug fixes to the Planetside 2 game over the last few months in preparation for it to launch on the new next-generation Sony PlayStation 4 games console which launched back in November of last year, as well as sort issues and bugs within the POC version of the PS2 game.
Sony Online Entertainment has explained that by rolling out more consistent weekly updates for Planetside 2 every Wednesday the company will be able to rapidly respond to bugs and balance issues within the game. Allowing the development team to be more focused on decreasing the number of bugs and issues that are introduced when an update is rolled out.
However SOE also explained that even though they are opting for weekly updates for Planetside 2, these smaller weekly updates will not replace the larger patches and updates that have been released every few months and will continue to be rolled out.
