Because of its release, scheduled maintenance that would have occurred alongside the New Genesis launch will be moved forward by about one or two days.

Due to the change in the maintenance schedule, there will be changes to the dates and the content of the “The Road to New Genesis Event” countdown login bonus event. More information will be announced at a later date. There are no changes to the amount of SG distributed. Sega will hold campaigns to celebrate the launch.

The publisher’s popular free-to-play title from Japan, Phantasy Star Online 2, was released in North America last year.

The North American version of the MMO includes fully localized text and character voices in English, spanning three years of content. This version also included the most up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements.

In the game, you can choose from four races and nine classes and join up to 11 others to fight battles and bosses. You can also enjoy Casino mini-games, Alliance Quarters, competing in the new ARKS League, or attending the all-new live stage events.

You are also able to play with others on both PC and Xbox One thanks to cross-platform play.
