Sony Online Entertainment's massively multiplayer online shooter will receive weekly updates to improve performance and add extra content, according to creative director Matt Higby.
In a post on theHigby revealed the plans and explained why the team had chosen this new patch model.
"Over the last few weeks we have been reorganizing our internal build and development processes in order to allow us to expedite builds to live with the goal of updating the live game more often and more regularly," he said, "I'm really excited to announce that starting next Wednesday we will begin doing weekly game updates!"
"What does this mean for you? Well for starters, it means we'll be more rapidly respond to bugs & balance issues in the game without having to rely on hotfixes as much. We'll also be able to release new content more frequently and consistently."
Higby explained that the first couple of weekly updates would be on a smaller scale, allowing the dev team to get used to the new model.
It's a busy time for Planetside 2, with the sci-fi shooter making its way to PS4 sometime soon.
