PlanetSide 2 (opens in new tab) has received another game update, this one focusing on how battles work on the super-chilly continent of Esamir. As Massively (opens in new tab) note, it revolves around the 'lattice system', which is quite possibly the best name for a system I've ever heard. Lattice was introduced way back in update 9, but it's only just gone live - via update 13 - for Esamir, and the map's been updated to compensate. In other news, I have no idea what 'lattice system' means in this context, but now all I can think of is delicious pie.

If you're wondering where your Implants - consumables that grant time-limited character buffs - are, well they were removed from this update following negative feedback (opens in new tab) . What we do get, however, are a few new premium weapons, a chat box for the respawn screen, an updated tutorial, and miscellaneous other stuff (opens in new tab) . Not a bad haul, all told.
