Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be available to play starting today!
Earlier this morning, Sega announced that Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will launch today. The newest MMO action RPG is free to play on various devices and platforms.
About the game
In previous reports, the game happens 1000 years after the Oracle’s battle–Episode 6 in the original game version. It will come with a broader area where players can Photon Glide and Dash through changing environments that will base on real-time of the day. What’s more, they will battle against new enemies: giant robotic ones named DOLLS.
Moreover, this newest version has better graphics, visuals, and character creation. It has a changed skin luster, moving fingers, and the possibility of wearing more accessories in different locations. Enjoy the game with up to 32 people allowed in the adventure!
Where to play
In case you missed it, game creators also released the version’s character creator and benchmarking tool just recently. It allows the players to see how the game will be played on their PC and make their characters ahead of time. Furthermore, the game will have a Rocket Start Campaign. Expect limited bonus items and rewards. Catch the full rundown via Steam.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is now available on Windows PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. To add, Sega promised next-gen updates for the Series X|S version soon. Additionally, the game will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. Unfortunately, however, it is unlikely that those versions will be open outside Japan anytime in the future since it is exclusive to Xbox consoles in the West.
Both Phantasy Star Online 2 and New Genesis will still be available on different platforms and devices. Players can still access their accounts with either of the two-game versions. More so, characters in the original version will be compatible with New Genesis, with all registered areas restored.
As mentioned, character creation has evolved. To create, download Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis on Steam. Fans need to download their preferred version because they do not have the same launcher; they have separate store listings. Progress made in the original version will be restored in New Genesis. Log in with an administrator account to access and play the game. It is free-to-play as usual. However, there is some content available for purchasing.
This information is from the initial closed beta version of the game launcher, which has a drop-down menu in each game’s Environment Settings listing options. Still, this is not confirmed in the game’s final version yet, but players can choose to install between the two versions.
With Phantasy Star Online and Phantasy Star Online 2’s success, new versions were created to provide more fun for the players. Enjoy these new exciting features in New Genesis by downloading it on Windows 10 via Steam or Xbox.
