Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally arrived on Steam

It might've taken eight years for Phantasy Star Online 2 to make it to the West, but fortunately, the jump from the Windows Store to Steam only took the Japanese MMO a mere couple of months. Sonic Team's free-to-play anime romp has finally found a place on Valve's shelves, making it easier than ever to hop in and bash a load of goblins in a…

Phantasy Star Online 2 dons a hazard suit for next month’s Steam launch

Phantasy Star Online 2 is pretty bloody weird, right? A sci-fi romp that has your anime heroes fighting everything from goblins to WW2 battleships by way of Evangelion's screaming hell-prism. Now, with a Steam launch due next month, you'll soon be able to traipse through PSO2 as some kind of Valve chimaera - piloting a far-future mech in Gordon Freeman's hazard suit as a tiny…

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be a standalone game, Sega clarify

When Sega announced Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis at Thursday's NotE3 Xbox show, there was a bit of a kerfuffle over what it was. An update? An expansion? A brand new game? To help clear up any misconceptions, the publishers have put together a new "follow-up" trailer explaining exactly what New Genesis actually is - a new, spruced-up standalone release that will let you…

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will give the ageing MMO a facelift

Phantasy Star Online 2's getting on a bit, isn't it? Sega's big ol' sci-fi MMO might've only officially come to the West this Spring, but it's been big in Japan for the better part of a decade - and boy, does it show. Announced during today's Xbox Games Showcase, New Genesis is preparing to change all that with a massive overhaul to the MMOs visuals.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to “more PC platforms”

Sega recently gave free-to-play action-RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 a long-overdue western release with two gutting caveats: it's on the Windows 10 Store; and it's only for North America. Microsoft's Store is enough of a mess that some would-be players still can't play PSO2. While sadly they still don't have anything to say about a European launch, there is good news for stores. Alongside announcing…

After eight years, Phantasy Star Online 2 arrives on western PCs next month

Lasting just shy of a decade in the MMORPG space is no small feat. Launching afresh after you've been running steady for so many years? That ain't no walk in the park, either. After making it big in Japan following its 2012 launch, Sega's sci-fi action-RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 finally makes its western PC debut in May. For North Americans. Sort of.

Phantasy Star Online 2 comes to America (but not Europe) in spring 2020

Bordering on a miracle, Sega have confirmed an English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 after seven years of their teaser site saying it was coming soon. Sonic Team's free-to-play action RPG has been a Japanese online gaming staple for yonks, but the publisher have been deathly silent about an English release for years. Announced to much surprise during the Microsoft E3 presser, it's headed…

Phinally: Phantasy Star Online 2 Journeying West

I have no idea what to expect from Phantasy Star Online 2. The original sort-of-Diablo-ish monster mash delighted a bright-eyed, bushy tailed (I've since had that surgically removed) version of me during the Dreamcast days, but times have changed - especially in MMOtopia. Even so, for better or worse, many of PSO's longtime staples still seem to be in place here, so we're looking at…
