Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is running a beta program next month

May 14-16

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is still somewhat shrouded in mystery, but the veil is being peeled back in just a month.

Sega has announced that they’re running a global beta period for New Genesis: you read that right, it is not limited to Japan. It’ll take place from May 14 through May 16, which will be a fairly narrow window for sure, but a way to play the game regardless. Registration starts on April 21 at 1PM ET, and you’ll be able to do it on the Xbox Insider Hub app.

You can find all of the exact times below. The gist is that it’s only for Windows 10 PCs via the Microsoft Store. That’s going to be a deal breaker for some! Honestly, I can just wait for the “later in 2021” date to play it myself. But it’ll be fun to see more open info on New Genesis in any case.

Just know that Sega says this test “will have a limited number of applicants who can register at a first come, first served basis.” So once that 1PM ET April 21 registration hits, slam that opt in button!
