Planetside 2 February 9 Update
Planetside 2 February 9 Update Steam

The sci-fi shooter Planetside 2 just received an update that features limited-time events in celebration of Valentine’s Day. The patch also brings some improvements to Oshur.

Valentine’s Day Events

There are six Matchmaker missions that you can complete as part of a limited-time event. Finishing them will give you access to Operation: Matchmaker where you will run a matchmaking contest set by FL-34 for a chance to earn some extra cash.

Up to two Matchmaker missions are available on your list every day. Completing them will provide progress to the Valentine’s Day directive tree. Another special event has its own directive that rewards you with the “Lovestruck" title upon completion.

The Valentine’s Day events are available from February 9 to February 14.
