Capturing Hossin will give the capturing empire a 50% reduction in the cost of MAX Infantry for as long as Hossin is held.
Hossin was originally planned to be released in April, 2013. This did not come to fruition, however, with SOE rescheduling the continent's release to July/August as of mid March, 2013. SOE has later stated on the Roadmap forum that Hossin's release was to occur in September, 2013. The continent had its first release in August, 2013 on the test server after SOE live, with some parts locked to prevent player from accessing them. After the start of the Operation: Make Faster Game Hossin was, with the rest of the scheduled features, moved to the unscheduled part of the Planetside 2 Roadmap.
On the 23rd of January, 2014, Hossin is yet again rescheduled on the Roadmap to be released in May. As of March, 2014, the continent is fully available to be played on the public test server.
