Planetside 2 is kind of hard, especially for beginners, but that just makes the learning process all the more worthwhile. To help ease you in, or just to hone your already elite veteran skills, Sony Online Entertainment has introduced a VR training centre in the latest content update to grace the shooter MMO.
The VR training area is accessible through any warp terminal, and allows for safe testing of weapons, vehicles and upgrades, giving you a chance to get familiar with new gear and formulate tactics before you have to use them in actual combat.
Each of three factions has its own training area, supplied with infantry and vehicle target dummies and well as indoor and outdoor shooting ranges and an open space to learn to control the various vehicles.
Full patch notes are available on the Planetside 2 forums; the update also supplied a stealth ATV called the flash and paid some loving attention to rocket launchers.
