Wow hossin is awesome, and for some of you guys who had characters made already on test, make a new one. They now give 100000 certs to boot, were the old one had 10000 to start with. Hossin looks awwwesome, its all buggy and stuff, but I love it

It's a bitch to navigate, that's for sure. Bring your Infiltrators and Light Assaults and don't even bother spawning any vehicle besides AMS.

A change of scenery sure is nice, but we'll have to see how it plays.

Is it quite a bit smaller than the other worlds, or is it just because we can only play about half of it?

Probably a bit of that and the fact that Hossin, is much more triangular in shape and size and that's including the entirety of the Continent.

If we were to measure it with Indar for instance, I'm sure it would come close to its size, maybe not exactly but close.

Only 1/3 is available to play currently.

Re: Hossin Available NOW on Public Test


only spent 3h in there so my opinion is still a WIP:
It's a pain to move around in vehicles as wel as it is for aircraft to do A2G, apart from bases.
It has a few nice base designs.

One thing I think will be fun there is galaxy dropping. With travel time as it is, and A2G limited: I bet galaxies will be hot transport on hossin.


Oh yea, and instant death water!
Devs = please add underwater ala Tribes2: where you could fly your shrike underwater to come up the other side of a lake or navigate underwater channels at high speed.

I was able to ask Matt some questions about Hossin that are somewhat irrelevant now since everyone can see it

But I asked him if they applied everything they learned from the Indar redesign and the Esamir redesign and he said they went back and retooled it numerous times before releasing what you are seeing now. Additionally it looks like they are going to do a "phased release" of the continent to get feedback along the way before full release.

I was able to observer cam around it a bit the day it released and I must say it was extremely impressive. It's not vehicle friendly overall, but vehicles will still have a role. I cannot wait to play Infiltrator on this map.

Hamma, were you able to get a run down of the Q&A round table sections of SOE Live with any info you're able to divulge back in the direction of the forum?

Sadly not, it was hard to collect information during the panels as they were all over the place. I may do a bit of a brain dump later today.

Also - here's the screenshots!

Think I'll be steering clear of Ixtab from now on, thank you very much. Anyone want to join me at Acan? Heard they're having a happy hour later on. Not sure about Chac though... Well, maybe after a few at Acan's.
