PlanetSide 2's senior art director, Tramell Isaac, and creative director, Matt Higby, revealed the game's engineer class in episode five of their PlanetSide 2 Command Center series this weekend.

The episode shows footage of the engineer in action: combatting deployables, conducting repairs, and supporting deployables. Players will get points for repairs and the engineer class also has access to turrets.

"Engineers are key," Higby says in the video. "We're moving a lot of our objectives within the base capture over where you blow up a generator and then engineers actually have to go repair it, so engineers are key. They are so key."

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