Sony launches Core Combat

First PlanetSide expansion too little too late?

Sony Online Entertainment has launched the first PlanetSide expansion pack, Core Combat. The pack opens up underground caverns that house ancient alien technology and weaponry that can be put to use by any of the PlanetSide's three empires. It introduces "urban style" combat in underground cities, as well as more mission objectives aside from the usual capture-and-hold style of the original game.

There's a wealth of information on what the pack provides over at the official website, and if it's sufficient to boost your interest then you'll have to whip out the plastic and buy it online for a princely $29.99, as it's a download-only expansion.
