Planetside 2 in-game purchases to be unlocked for every character on an account

As it stands now, proud, pretty but a little bit wobbly, Planetside 2 requires you to purchase unlocks separately for each character on your account. That’s set to change, says creative director Matt Higby.

Prices will remain as they are, and players won’t have to pay any more for account-wide unlocks. Unfortunately SOE wouldn’t be drawn on a time frame for the Station Cash system’s update.

"It's just a matter of how long it's going to take to get it right," Higby told Massively. "The good news is that it will be retroactive, so any items that you did buy will automatically go across your entire account once we put it in."

All purchasable items will be usable across your account once the update hits, except for those which are faction-specific - e.g. the New Conglomerate’s Jackhammer.

That sounds much better, doesn’t it?
