Today Sega announced via press release that Phantasy Star Online is launching on the Epic Games Store.
The free-to-play release will launch on Epic Games’ storefront on February 17, and it’ll include all content, including the brand new (in the west) Episode 6 from the get go.
The press release includes a comment from Fred White from PSO2 Team Global.
“We are so happy to be releasing Phantasy Star Online 2 Global on the Epic Games Store.
With all the huge updates to the game over the past year, including the newest Chapter 6 update, there’s more content than ever to explore and play through. We can’t wait to welcome in all the new players to the PSO2 universe!”
On top of that, we get a video guide dedicated to the successor class Luster, which is included in the Episode 6 update.
Last, but not least, we take a look at a new AC Scratch collection titled Versus Annihilation. It’ll be available today and it’ll last quite a long time, until August 10.
You can check out both videos below.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is available in the west for Xbox One and PC. A few months ago, we heard that the western version enjoyed a “strong start” and that it passed one million players.
In the meanwhile, Sega recently announced Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, which will basically be a new game operated in parallel with the original Phantasy Star Online 2.
The original game will, in turn, receive a visual upgrade to bring it more in line with New Genesis’ graphics. Players will be able to use the same accounts and characters to play both games.
