SEGA has released the new opening video for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is a free to play standalone expansion for Phantasy Star Online 2 that will release in 2021.
As SEGA noted, the worlds of PSO2 and PSO2:NGS will coexist in a single game. After logging in to the game, the team plans to have a feature similar to the current PSO2 block movement feature, which allows players to move between each world.
Additionally, and in order to be able to play as the same character in PSO2 and PSO2:NGS, the graphics engine in PSO2 will receive an overhaul. SEGA plans to announce the new PC system requirements prior to the expansion’s launch.
Lastly, here are the key features of Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.
- “Worldview”, “Game System”, “Graphics Engine”, and “Character Creation” have all been completely redesigned.
- PSO2: NGS features an open world game system, with an updated battle system to take advantage of the new, persistent world.
- Players can move back and forth between “PSO2: NGS” and “PSO2” on the same PSO2 account!
- Empowered by a new graphics engine, “Character Creation” will offer more customization options than ever before. Players can also bring their character created in “PSO2: NGS” to the world of “PSO2”. Also, players can share their character data well as lobby actions that obtained in “PSO2” to “PSO2: NGS”.

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.
