It has been close to a year since SEGA first announced Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. The new version of the MMO is a complete overhaul of the game and it will be playable very soon, with a launch now set for next week.
Back in April, the Phantasy Star Online 2 team confirmed that New Genesis will be releasing in June, although they stopped short of giving a specific day. Now, a specific date has been revealed, with New Genesis releasing on the 9th of June.
Some of you may have already tried New Genesis out, as a closed beta ran in the middle of May in preparation for the launch in June.
Similarly to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is a separate game to the original. It is the ‘next generation’ of PSO2, built on a new engine with a rebuilt game world and a new main story set 1,000 years after the original.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be heading to PC and Xbox consoles.
KitGuru Says: New Genesis looks to be a significant upgrade over the original PSO2. Will many of you be jumping on this next week when it comes out?
