Sega and Microsoft recently released a new update for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis Nov-27-2020

Sega and Microsoft recently released Phantasy Star Online 2: A new update of New Genesis (a revised and modern update of Phantasy Star Online 2).

With the announcement of the live broadcast plan at Sega last night, everything will change. It will be held at 6:30 AM Eastern Time on December 19, 2020. This is the first step, so make sure you are ready to start.

Following the online broadcast of "Tokyo Game Show 2020", I have been looking forward to some new information, so the live broadcast is coming soon. Sega does not have a popular URL, nor does it have any planned actions. This information will be released in the future, and we will make sure to update it when we know more.

What is "Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis"? "New Genesis" is the work to be launched in the PSO2 series. The game will be updated and upgraded. According to Sega, this update will conduct a comprehensive review of almost everything from the graphics engine to the game mechanics. This is an update that fans of the series have been asking for, especially since PSO2 was launched 8 years ago. Only recently entered North America.

The game that announced the 2020 candidates, New Genesis, was marked as an open world RPG. In short, with the newly added Photon Dash and Photon Glide, there are many ways to travel through the new world. There are new day and night systems and weather influences. The story will also change, because the entry occurred 1,000 years after the PSO2 incident. Because this leap is so big, anything (which seems to happen) can happen.

Already playing the original game? It doesn't matter, because you can bring the character into "New Genesis" with some expectations. You will not be able to transfer character development, PSO2 Meseta experience, skills, photon art or technology. Seeing it spelled like this will make you wonder if it is worth replacing the existing character.

By redoing the entire game and reintroducing it into Final Fantasy XIV, it can be considered similar to what Square Enix did for Final Fantasy XIV. I'm sure Sega has been following the success of Square Enix's MMORPG and hopes to achieve this. Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis will be released in North America and Japan in 2021, for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows 10.
