Looking for a good place to start with MMO Phantasy Star Online 2, a decade old? Next week may be the best cry, as New Genesis reaches a massive standalone expansion with a complete overhaul of the game’s look.
A month after Sega released a kinda-sorta sequel in June, the publisher has since confirmed that you will be able to explore the open pages of New Genesis on June 9th.
PSO2 NEW GENESIS will be released on June 9th. 🎉💫✨PSO2: NGS will be launched after the end of maintenance on June 9, 2021 (Wednesday). We will campaign to celebrate the launch. We hope you all want it too! Https://t.co/pxqpPpSl2L # PSO2 # PSO2NGS pic.twitter.com/yQsnbdjqVTJune 1, 2021
Set 1,000 years after the current MMO, New Genesis is a complete reimagining, fighting with a more RPG-style fighting style in a vast open world full of monsters to hit. Having a millennium in the future doesn’t mean you have to start all over again, mind you.
PSO2 characters will be able to transfer freely between the base game and NG (although XP gain and certain coins will be blocked in each instance). NG also has a much stronger character creator, though it retains the charm of PSO2-style '90s anime.
