We learn that a closed beta for global users outside of Japan will come at a later time. More information will be revealed down the line.

We also get to see new footage. First of all, we take a look at enemies introduced during the Japanese closed beta. On top of the mechanical Dolls we already know about, we get to see the feral “Formers, ” and the demonic Alters.

We then get to see how exploration sections can host up to 32 players at once instead of the 8 player limit in combat sections. Despite the name, there is combat here as well.

We also take a look at some info on outerwear, CAST parts, Setwear, Weapon Camo, sub-classes, skill points, limit break, and battle power.

Interestingly, we also get to take a look at the results of a survey among beta testers. We learn that game speed is balanced to make it enjoyable for both veteran and new players. For now, it’s suitable for release. Speed in the original PSO2 increased from the beginning to episode 6.

Two new face types will be introduced in the second closed beta, including one similar to the classic sharp type face.

Here are some details on the second closed beta test for Japan, which starts tomorrow.

Next, we take a look at new weapon categories coming at release, the Partisan, the Wired Lance, the Launcher, the Twin Dagger, the Double Saber (I saw your Tekkaman Blade homage, Sega), and the Talis.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will come for the same platforms as Phantasy Star Online 2 which in the west is (for now) Xbox and PC, while in Japan it will release for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

New info and gameplay will be showcased in a livestream next week.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
