Awhile back, Sega announced they were working on the next entry in the Phantasy Star Online 2 series, New Genesis. Since then players have been wondering when they might get the chance to test it out. How about this month? A global closed beta test for the PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be held from May 14 through May 16, Sega revealed today.
Phantasy Star Online 2
For quite a while, Sega’s MMO Phantasy Star Online 2 has been available on PCs through Steam and the Windows 10 Store. The only place you can’t buy it for PC is the Epic Game Store, but that will only be true for a few more hours. Sega is bringing the game to a new marketplace.
Sega is about to unleash a massive update for Phantasy Star Online 2 next Wednesday, February 3. The story will be updated, for one thing. Sega describes the impending plot developments this way: “The battle lines have been drawn, and the Armada of Annihilation continues to gather its forces around the Mothership. The time to strike is now, before any more Luminmech can be created. Sacrifices may be required as it’s going to take an all-out, coordinated attack by ARKS to annihilate Shiva – and the fate of the universe depends on the outcome.” So what does that mean?
Sega announced today that they’ve added some new content to their long-running MMORPG Plantasy Star Online 2. Starting this week, anyone who logs into PSO2 will receive a Gold Bonus Key each day through January 20. Those who log in enough times within that period will get a Rainbow Bonus Key, an IDOLA poster and other items.
A press release from Sega posted over at PSO World has revealed the publisher is planning to release PSO2 in the US in 2013.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently in open beta for the Japanese (and anyone else with the know-how) right now, and today Sega have announced the game’s official launch in Japan will be July 4th.
