Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis Reveals July Update & First Look at Braver Class

Today Sega revealed the upcoming update for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis that will launch today at the end of the current maintenance.

Today Sega hosted a livestream revealing the upcoming update for Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis that will launch today at the end of the current maintenance.

The update will include new AC Scratch rewards, and the celebration for the 9th anniversary of Phantasy Online 2, which will bring decorations for the city, events, enemies to fight, and prizes.

There will also be a revival AC Scratch with plenty of popular items from the past of Phantasy Star Online 2, and a second part of the anniversary event which will launch with an update in mid July.

As you can see below, all the items are identical in the west and in Japan.

In August, we’re getting another update that will include the Braver class (which already exists in the original Phantasy Star Online).

In the video below you can take a first look.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is currently available for Xbox and PC in the west and for PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch via cloud streaming in Japan.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s what it’s all about.

  • Free to play!
  • Huge wide-open battlefield environments! Explore a whole new world featuring broad, expansive playfields filled with ferocious enemies waiting for you and your team. Traverse wide-open environments, speed and soar across the giant landscape and skies with new special abilities. Transitioning into a new area is as simple as walking into it — no loading screens.
  • Enhanced character models! Create your identity with any character you can imagine in PSO2:NGS using the powerful creation engine. Adjust every imaginable characteristic to create your one-of-a-kind avatar.
  • Redesigned graphics engine! Witness lush environments, amazingly detailed player characters, and monstrous foes in razor-sharp resolution. Watch spectacular new lighting and particle effects as weapons clash with armor. See the world as you’ve never seen it before.
  • New multi-weapon system and abilities! Combine 2 types of weapons for smoother weapon switching. Battle at lightning speed using a variety of weapons and techniques.
  • Connects with PSO2! Move easily in-game between PSO2:NGS and PSO2.
  • Cross-platform! PC and Xbox One players can play together side by side.

The western version of the game includes an English voice track. Sega promises to keep it current with the Japanese version in terms of updates.
