Phantasy Star Online 2 Screen

It has been announced that Phantasy Star Online 2 will be heading to Steam on August 5. The launch of it will also coincide with the Episode 4 content update. You can take a look at the game’s press release below.


Tokyo, July 28, 2020 – SEGA today announced Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to Steam on PC on August 5th. Visit the Steam page. In addition, on the day the Steam version launches, the first big content update for Phantasy Star Online 2, Episode 4, will be available on Xbox One and PC.

Episode 4, announced earlier this summer, will launch on August 5th as a free update for Xbox One and PC. Watch as the interstellar battle between good and evil enters a familiar new dimension in the official trailer:

“It is our goal to bring Phantasy Star Online 2 to as many players as we can,” said Fred White, PSO2 TEAM North America’s Head of Marketing. “We have heard the requests for a Steam launch, and we are excited to announce that soon Steam users in 36 countries on six continents will be able to experience PSO2 on their platform of choice, including popular features like Steam Achievements and Remote Play. The Steam Store page for PSO2 opens today. Additionally, all players on PC and Xbox One will be able to start Episode 4 on the same day — August 5th!”

The Phantasy Star Online 2 story continues in Episode 4 as players wake from a long sleep to find that there has been an internal invasion of fake ARKS members, mysterious enemies called Phantasms appear, and a new planet has been discovered in another dimension – Earth.  ARKS will be able to unlock a new level cap and travel to new locations like Tokyo and Las Vegas in the pursuit of solving the mystery of the mysterious black shadow and purge the planet of the most powerful enemies encountered yet, including the mysterious organization called Mother Corps.

Phantasy Star Online 2 players are invited to join together online to explore numerous worlds with friends and experience PSO2’s unparalleled action combat and character customization. Choosing from four unique races and nine classes, players can join forces with up to eleven other operatives at a time to experience unforgettable battles and boss fights.

The North American version of Phantasy Star Online 2 includes fully localized text and character voices in English. In addition to the immersive original PSO2 story, the NA version also features the most-up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese service. Players can take a break from questing by playing one of the many Casino mini-games, chilling in the Alliance Quarters, competing in the new ARKS League or attending all-new live stage events. And they will be able to do all of this with friends on PC and Xbox One thanks to cross-platform play.
