Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally launched on PC in the west after eight years


As promised – and after so many years of waiting that many folks had long since given up on it – Phantasy Star Online 2 has officially launched on the PC as of this morning.

“The North American version of Phantasy Star Online 2 includes fully localized text and character voices in English, spanning three years of content, including events, campaigns, quests, and raid bosses. In addition to the immersive original PSO2 story, the NA version also features the most-up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese service. Players can choose from four races and nine classes while tackling various missions. They can also take a break from questing by playing one of the many Casino mini-games, chilling in the Alliance Quarters, competing in the new ARKS League or attending all-new live stage events. And for the first time they will be able to do all of this with friends on both PC and Xbox One thanks to cross-platform play.”

The PC version is accessible through the Microsoft Store, just bear in mind that crossplay means you’ll be entering game worlds that are already populated by folks who’ve been playing on Xbox One for a while.┬áMultiple writers on the MOP staff have lost their damn minds over this game, so expect PC-centric impressions over the next week. In the meantime, you can check out our console impressions!

We seem to be doing a lot of these updates this week! So yes, the PSO2 PC launch is not going well at all. The Reddit is stuffed full of people having problems, chiefly with distribution on the Windows store, some of which our own writers can confirm.

SEGA and Microsoft, get your fucking shit together. This Store launch is unacceptable. from PSO2
