    In a press release, Sega states that “there will be no limitations on game experiences such as Class Level cap or direct purchase of high-tier weapons because we want to provide all players with a fair and exciting experience.”

    In spite of this, there will still be some form of microtransactions in case“players still find themselves in need of assistance for their quest.”

    This is the last thing I would've ever predicted lmao.

    Also had my fill of JP PSO2 back when EP3 was a thing and they added the Bushido class and I dumped a lot of time leveling it up via PSO2ES. Wondering how many players of the JP version will actually make the jump.

    I played it a bunch when it first launched but just kind of burned out due to the unofficial English patches just not always covering everything and feeling weird about spending money on a game they didn't want to release here. I can totally understand people on the Japanese servers not wanting to come to this version though if they aren't going to be linked. Starting over would be brutal after that much time and/or money spent on the other version.

    But I'm all in on this when it launches. This easily jumped to my most anticipated game.

    Well the trailer said all content so I assume whatever the most recent JP update will be next year. I'll whale down to support this for the first couple months when it releases to help it.

    I went through the hell that is paying for the JP version, I'm sure I'll have some money for the game when it arrives finally. The subscription bonuses were pretty good and almost necessary for the sake of selling stuff. Without it you didn't have any income except client orders and you couldn't buy 10* and up items.

    SEGA Games announced today that Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2), one of Japan's greatest online RPGs, will launch in the West, debuting in North America in Spring 2020 on Xbox One.

    All stories and content, and especially the fan-favorite epic battles with their huge number of enemies, will be included in this free-to-play release. Stay tuned for more details!

    "What is PSO2?"

    Join the Spectacular Experience of a "Never-ending Quest" and "The Highest Level Action"!

    Players of PSO2 become a member of a research expedition called "Arks," which belong to a fleet of interplanetary cruising ships, setting out to a research a variety of different planets. Visiting places for the mission (quest) always evolves into a fresh and surprising adventure, including auto-generated maps, sudden events, and a Multiplayer Party Area, where up to 12 players can play together simultaneously.

    Each planet and quest is an encounter with different characters and battles with enemies. Its easy control systems allow for intense exhilaration in battles as well as highly strategic and customizable actions. Gigantic boss enemies are also waiting for their time to challenge you with their towering body that covers the whole screen. Team up with other players against epic bosses!

    Create Your Own Character with the Ultimate "Character Creation"!

    PSO2 lets players create their own characters in an easy and intuitive way with the "Character Creation" system.

    Not only costumes, hairstyles, accessories, but also the height, body shape, and moreover, the length and thickness of arms and legs, can be customized with a morphing feature for unlimited customization and design combination.

    Free to Download and Play the Game!

    The entire game will be made available as a F2P experience for players on Xbox One. There will be no limitations on game experiences such as Class Level cap or direct purchase of high-tier weapons because we want to provide all players with a fair and exciting experience.

    If players still find themselves in need of assistance for their quest, microtransactions are there to help.

    Phantasy Star Online 2 will launch in the West, debuting in North America in Spring 2020 on Xbox One.

    I don't think there's anything specific yet, but I've been seeing info that PC will get a beta a little later but the official launch might be the same as Xbox

    I really hope this is true, their lack of news, or any information at all, on the PC version scares me into thinking it will be delayed to help promote xbox one sales or something.

    Didn't bother with the closed beta to play it but now with the open beta this feels great to finally play it. Have not touched it since 2012 w/ the early days of the english patch.

    I'm not surprised at it having a "battle" pass though but it does offer some nice things
