Phantasy Star Online 2 Live on Xbox One


Today marks the official launch of SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online 2 on Xbox One in North America.

Now available on the Microsoft Store, this free-to-play title features fully localized text and character voices in English, along with all of the balancing and quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese version of the title.

In this title, players can choose between four different races and nine different classes as they take on various missions, play Casino mini-games, chill in the Alliance Quarters, and attend all-new live stage events. For those that played the beta, all progress will be carried over.

For those playing this week, the Urgent Quests “The Cunning Black Winged Vanguard” and “The False Champion: Luther the Fallen” have begun. In addition, all soldiers of the Oracle colony fleet that join 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 collectable emote #269: Impromptu Tea Party.

According to Fred White, PSO2 TEAM North America’s Head of Marketing:

“Phantasy Star Online 2 changed the history of Online Action RPG’s; the sci-fi story, characters, and gameplay has resonated with gamers worldwide and now we’re excited to bring North American players this special game — for free. Our player community is the heart and soul of the game and we couldn’t have done it without their ongoing support and passion. Now that it is officially launched on Xbox One, we look forward to kicking off a fun-filled future of events, collaborations and expansions in the years to come!”

Note that the title will make its way to the PC (via the Microsoft Store) in late May, and there will be crossplay between the Xbox One and PC versions during this time.
