The New Genesis PlayStation port arrives on August 31, 2022
After over a year with Xbox console exclusivity under its belt, we’re getting a Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis PlayStation port.
Announced this morning, Sega intends to bring the game to PlayStation 4 on August 31, 2022, which will bring it in line with the PC and Xbox editions of the game. This will include all prior content updates of course, including the recent Kvaris region expansion. Previously the game (which is a more action-oriented spinoff that takes place 1000 years after the PSO 2 proper narrative) launched on June 9, 2021 after a lot of fanfare from Microsoft, but the console exclusivity period is done.
The publisher also confirmed today that it will hold a Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis event at Anime Expo that will honor the whole PSO2 subseries. Here’s the info:
“In honor of the upcoming launch, SEGA has commissioned one-of-a-kind art that will be displayed all weekend at Anime Expo 2022 in Los Angeles. The gallery will also feature concept art, figurines, and additional artwork commemorating PSO2‘s recent milestones. There will also be a SEGA photo booth that will transport Anime Expo attendees into the world of PSO2:NGS! Booth visitors will also receive codes to redeem in-game items like ARKS Expo shirts, a mag form, an emote, and a sticker. A limited selection of PSO2: NGS merchandise, including shirts and pins, will be available for purchase; these items are exclusive to Anime Expo and ARKS Expo in Japan.”
