SEGA has announced that Phantasy Star Online 2, one of Japan’s greatest online RPGs, will launch in the West, debuting in North America in Spring 2020 on both Xbox One and the PC. All stories and content, and especially the fan-favorite epic battles with their huge number of enemies, will be included in this free-to-play release.
Players of PSO2 become a member of a research expedition called “Arks,” which belong to a fleet of interplanetary cruising ships, setting out to a research a variety of different planets. Visiting places for the mission (quest) always evolves into a fresh and surprising adventure, including auto-generated maps, sudden events, and a Multiplayer Party Area, where up to 12 players can play together simultaneously.
Each planet and quest is an encounter with different characters and battles with enemies. Its easy control systems allow for intense exhilaration in battles as well as highly strategic and customizable actions.
Gigantic boss enemies are also waiting for their time to challenge you with their towering body that covers the whole screen. Players will be able to team up with other players against epic bosses.
The entire game will be made available as a F2P experience for players, and there will be no limitations on game experiences such as Class Level cap or direct purchase of high-tier weapons because we want to provide all players with a fair and exciting experience.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
