Planetside 2's Esamir is a snowy desert designed for vehicular combat

Episode six of Planetside 2's Command Center today revealed Esamir, a completely new type of continent that players will be able to explore and fight on.

The icy continent is as large as Indar but has fewer regions for players to fight over and the distance between regions is greater. The game's creative director, Matt Higby, said that Esamir is designed for vehicular gameplay, both on land and in the air, rather than infantry combat.

"We're already talking about potentially making adjustments and figuring out if we want more regions in there and does this number of regions actually feel good," Higby said in the episode.

Footage of Esamir can be seen at 7:42 in the video below.

PlanetSide 2 is currently in beta. The game is set to release later this year on PC.
