The development team at Sony Online Entertainment changes the cert gain rates and skill costs for their upcoming Planetside 2 in order to offer a more balanced game experience and make sure that those who play the game for free and those who are willing to pay a monthly subscription have a level playing field.
Certification points will be gained at double the rate seen during the beta stage of Planetside 2 but costs for abilities and their attachments have been doubled in order to compensate.
More details on the changes are available on the official site of the game
, where the developers explain why they made the changes and give more information on how they will affect the MMO.
Planetside 2 is a first person shooter MMO that will be offered exclusively on the PC on November 20.
