Phantasy Star Online 2 kicks off multiple events as preload begins tonight

    
11

Wednesday, May 27th, is a pretty important day for Phantasy Star Online 2. Not only is the MMORPG finally making its way to PC players in the West, but it also is the start of a special event where players who join Alliances will get some free goodies. The event runs between May 27th and June 9th, and grants players several goodies depending on the size of Alliance they join up with, including a Two-Tailed Scarf accessory, an emote, and SG20 Tickets, which are worth 20 Star Gems each. Star Gems, for the record, are a special currency that can be used to get items in the SG Shop and Mission Pass Tiers, among other things.

SEGA has also announced a multi-tiered wedding event, for some reason. It even has bingo.

“Late May into early June provides great weather for many places around the world and in the world of PSO2. This makes it the ideal time to hold ceremonies such as weddings, and though this time is also peppered with bouts of rain, the effect of rain is honored in these ceremonies that also celebrate new growth. To acknowledge this time of new beginnings, operatives will observe changes on their Ships and the planets they visit. Seasonal Client Orders, new Urgent Quests, changing décor in certain areas of the Ship, and more can be expected with the start of the WEDDING EVENT!”

In other news, the game will come down overnight tonight for preload for the PC launch. According to replies on Twitter, preloading begins at 1 a.m. EDT tomorrow morning, with launch at 8 a.m. EDT. Happy patching!

So where do I get this game? I don’t see it in the Microsoft store yet.

…some secret vault where Microsoft demands you hand over your soul and half of your life earnings to access the keys to it. >.<

I can’t wait to read what PC players finally think of this version. Not touching it until we get other download options. Looking forward to seeing MJ lose her mind with all the options to create a character she will get.

Eyyy, finally a reason to use the Microsoft store. My body has been reading for this for a long time. I’m ready to be disappointed after I’ve built up how amazing this will in my head from the moment I hit play, but I’m just glad it’s here.

Now to find out if I’ve missed that in-game Miku Hatsune concert…

They’ll be doing the Miku and Luka concert again the first week of June. See: https://pso2.com/news/urgent-quests/uqmay2020part3

I’ll riot quietly in my desk chair if I can’t get the Dreamcast mag that Xbox users got from their stress tests/betas.

Miku on the other hand is in all places at all times if you believe in her hard enough.

So as a windows 10 player, do you still use your xbox account to login?
