Planetside 2 Prepares to Send Players to the Icy Tundra of Esamir
This weekend, Sony Online Entertainment orders you to report to battle in PlanetSide 2 on the newly discovered Auraxian continent of Esamir. Members of the command are hereby directed to advance their troops to the nearest warpgate terminal and head out to claim the icy tundra of Esamir for their Empire.

To prepare for Esamir’s rough, icy terrain, pack appropriately and watch the following video that will bring you and your squad up to speed:
