SEGA’s free-to-play online action RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 will make its way to the PC (via the Microsoft Store) on May 27 stateside.
In this release, ARKS will be able to explore a number of different worlds with friends, diving into its deep combat system and character customization. Players will be able to choose from four unique races and nine different classes, and can join up with up to eleven other operatives for battles and boss fights.
The North American version of this title will include fully localized text and character voices in English, which spans three years of content. This version also includes the most-up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements that are present in the Japanese service. Finally, cross-platform play between the PC and Xbox One versions is available.
