Phantasy Star Online 2 has been online for some time in Japan. And after a few years of waiting, SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally come West. The game is free-to-play on the console, and can be downloaded now via the Microsoft store, either via PC or on the console itself.
With four different races and nine playable classes, gamers have a fair few choices to experiment with for the Xbox One launch of the MMO. The new game also includes a bunch of side activities for players to enjoy. An in-game casino featuring various mini-games can be fun. Players will also have quarters they can decorate and hang out with their friends in.
The developer has also launched a couple of unique event quests for the sake of the launch. Players can take on both “The Cunning Black Winged Vanguard” and “The False Champion: Luther the Fallen” as part of the new Xbox One debut. In addition, any player in the Oracle colony that joins an Alliance with at least four members by April 28 can get themselves a SG20 Ticket (x1). Finally, members of Alliances that earned at least 5,000 Alliance Points by April 28th can get themselves the collectible emote #269: Impromptu Tea Party.
