Phantasy Star Online 2 journeys onto Xbox Series X with New Genesis

The classic MMO RPG is back

Today’s Xbox Games Showcase featured an exciting and action-packed trailer for New Genesis: Phantasy Star Online 2, which is headed to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

PSO2: New Genesis is to be considered a complete, from-the-ground-up overhaul of Sega’s original Phantasy Star Online 2, with a new engine, new visuals, gameplay mechanics, and much more. According to the official blurb, PSO 2: New Genesis is a brand new game, “redesigned for best-in-class online action”, and offering players “limitless adventure” and “unparalleled customisation.” A teaser site is now live.

PSO 2: New Genesis will launch in the west on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in 2021. In Japan, it will launch on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch (via Cloud).
