Phantasy Star Online 2 Now Features a Desert Planet

Posted by Ricardo

Satoshi Sakai went on stage to present the 2nd Fan Briefing. He announced some of the results of the Closed Beta Test and introduced new features implemented in the Open Beta Test. Unfortunately the Open Beta Test dates were not announced today.

Later on PSO2 will implement a Desert Planet, new costumes, new story quests, and a time attack quest.  But for now let’s go through what’s actually coming in the Open Beta.

OBT: New Planet Liliipa

Liliipa: A harsh environment where the whole planet is covered in sand. It has the remains of a civilization that existed once before. In many places there are structures that mine resources from the planet.



The Great Wall!

Desert: An area covered in sand. There’s hardly any traces of lifeforms, but there seems to be robots roaming about. They seem to have lost their masters and attack indiscriminately. The Arks have also confirmed the presence of the Darkers.


OBT: New Enemy


Gwanada: The Desert Boss, a large-sized Darker which lies hidden beneath the sand. Not only does it have large pincers, but it can easily manipulate its many tentacles.



Gilnas: A large machine with a sturdy body. Within its body lies a hidden core. Unless you destroy the core, it will  attack you even if its body is scattered in pieces. 


Signogan: Medium sized robot that moves very quickly.

For KWT – 2nd by terminating the download directly, its possible to terminate the download because the game and the download IP are 2 different IP, the game IP usually are 210.129.209.*:* where the * is random number, but note that the game will try to re-download again if u do this if u re-enter the lobby by any way, including from Campship
