Daybreak Games gives players a sneak peak at the massive map coming to PlanetSide Arena in the latest “Inside the Arena: Echoes of Amerish” dev diary video.

Join James Kurowski, Environment Artist, and Troy Schram, Senior Designer, as they give a tour of the the war-torn Echoes of Amerish map as well as the new biomes and points of interest scattered around the terrain. During the tour, James and Troy showcase the new DirectX 11 enhancements that are utilised in PlanetSide Arena and PlanetSide 2 to ensure the gameplay experience on both games are optimised.

You will also get a first look at the Bastion Carrier that serves as the in-game lobby where players can choose their class, loadout, and more before dropping into the battlefield. Bob Ross makes a guest appearance, so keep your eyes peeled!
