Phantasy Star Online 2 Launches July 4th
Phantasy Star Online 2 will be launching July 4th 14:00 JST!
July 4th Update!
Frozen Tundra Area
Mag’s 3rd Form
When your mag reaches beyond level 100, it can evolve into its third form. In addition to the “specialized type” mags consisting of striking, ranged, tech, and ability, it could evolve into a “combined type.”
Time Attack and Class Level 40
A new type of quest has been added! In Time Attack Quests, several gimmicks are laid out across the field. In normal quests, the maps are completely random, but time attack quests have preset maps.
In the first time attack quest, you will run from the forest to the tundra. A new ranking system called “Time Attack Ranking” will also be added to the game. You may receive a medal based on where you place.
You can now reach Level 40 by completing a client order.
Story Quests: Chapters 2, 3, and 4!
In Chapter 2, you receive a request from “Rodeo”, a scholar, who is questioning the origins of the Planet Naberius. In Chapter 3, you and Furie will investigate the creatures on Planet Lillipa.
Chapter 4 takes place on Planet Amduscia. Arks Researcher “Aki” and her assistant “Light” makes a request to cooperate with the Dragon tribes, but the dragons aren’t going to be won over that easy.

You may also purchase Arks Cash before the game starts on July 3rd at 15:00 JST.
Those who purchase the Premium Set will have access to the Premium Block. A certain number of blocks will be allocated only to premium users and it may look as if there are less blocks available for non-premium players. The number of premium blocks available will change based on the ratio of players who purchased it.
Based on user feedback, some players are having a hard time finding parties around their level. Sakai will make adjustments to the names of some blocks based on Play Style and Level ranges.
