Sega released the PC specifications of "Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis" Dec-22-2020

Sega recently released the PC specifications for "Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis", which will require a high-end gaming PC to make it beautiful and run smoothly.

"Phantasy Star Online 2" will be the first to launch Japanese in North America, which means "New Genesis" is coming soon. There is not much discussion about the console version, but Sega recently released the recommended PC specifications on its Japanese website, and it seems that "New Genesis" will develop into the next generation of online games. It may be that we have not seen this information on the Western PSO2 website, because the game has not even started beta in Japan.

PSO2: The gameplay of New Genesis has been exhibited at the Tokyo Game Show at the beginning of this season. It has some familiar features and PSO2 Meseta, and it is still in a brand new open world. This is the first game in the "Phantasy Star Online" program until all players are placed in each branch with limited personality. It opens with brand new graphics and requires some actual hardware to run.

This is a fairly ordinary game driver CPU, and you may find it in a good laptop.

If you want NGS to run high, you need the new Intel i9-10900 released this year. There are similar CPUs, such as Ryzen 5 5600X or i7-10700K, but they are expensive. These CPUs can run any new sports, even Cyberpunk2077. They are always at the high end of the gaming CPU spectrum.

To run NGS at a lower price, you need at least GeForce GTX 950 or AMD Radeon R9285. These are some fairly old graphics cards, which means that older gaming platforms can still run games as long as their CPU does not reduce their operating speed.

To run NGS on medium media, it is recommended to use GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX580. These are mid-range game cards that can be used even in next-generation game consoles. Their price is not too high, it may be difficult to find 1660, RX 5600 or some other new product series. These cards and other similar cards can also usually be found on top gaming laptops.

For the "maximum" setting, Sega urged GeForce 2070 Super or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. These are not cheap cards, and because they are next-generation technologies, it is difficult to find them today. Since both have ray tracing capabilities, it seems that NGS can choose this alternative. These cards are high-end products, very suitable for any game (such as upcoming games), if you plan to use ray tracing, it is recommended to use them for games such as DOOM Eternal or Control. This is the maximum setting limit in online games.

Like many games, NGS requires at least 8GB of RAM and a larger setting of 16GB. Compared with the current PSO2, the size of NGS is much smaller, only 30GB, but confusingly, it contains 70 GB of PSO2 space, totaling 100GB or more. It is not clear whether this means that PSO2 documentation is required to play with NGS, whether this is to allow players to move characters, or whether it will be released in a closed beta version. It is not specified whether an SSD is required.

You have actually read that Sega JP is currently recruiting a closed beta version of the NGS JP version. The plan is valid until January 4, but only for Western residents. Of course, the problem can be solved by the following methods: have a SEGA ID, PSO2 JP account, sufficient PC requirements, and will not mark your entry as a regional issue. The closed beta version will soon be available over a weekend from late January to early February.
