Sega Shows Off New Details About PSO 2 New Genesis
Sega is showing off new aspects of PSO 2: New Genesis to the world. The MMORPG will serve as an independent overhaul of its popular predecessor.
PSO 2: New Genesis showcased a lot of combat and open-world capabilities in the recent Tokyo Game Show. The new title comes from the need to replace the aging Phantasy Star Online 2. Not an overhaul, New Genesis is a completely separate game.
PSO 2: NG is Sega's standalone overhaul
At the E3 exhibition this year, Sega launched New Genesis, which is considered to be a graphical overhaul for PSO 2. At that time, Phantasy Star Online 2 had just moved to the West, 8 years after it was released in Japan.
Sega finally clarified that PSO 2: NG is a new, independent title. It has some limitations when migrating in-game content from the old game to new games. Even so, fans are still very happy to have a new version.
In New Genesis, you can explore a vast world. In the previous PSO 2, each area is an independent closed space, but in New Genesis, you can seamlessly move between different areas.
New Genesis to get three classes at launch
PSO 2: New Genesis not only showed its overworld, but also showed its combat capabilities and what people can expect. For starters, the game shows that three classes will have at launch. The Hunters are the melee class in the game, and the Rangers are the long-range shooter class. The Force is the magic casters of the title.
Just like any MMORPG, enemies will appear randomly on the battlefield, and the other 7 players will get the same information. The enemies will have elemental weaknesses, which are easy to exploit. Although Sega announced all these details of PSO 2: New Genesis, they did not give away a release date. However, it is scheduled for sometime in 2021.
If you are a fan of PSO 2, then I believe you will also like PSO 2 New Genesis. Most importantly, players can use the same account and role to play these two games, that's awesome!
So if you are annoyed that you spent too much PSO 2 Meseta to equip your character in PSO 2, then now I tell you that this is unnecessary because your character can still be used in PSO 2 New Genesis.
