Phantasy Star Online 2 hosts PSO2 Day — if you can actually play

Hey, you know what Phantasy Star Online 2 needs to detract from the awful taste of last week’s launch fiasco? A holiday! And thus, PSO2 Day was born, granting players extra tickets and bonus experience — but just today. If you see the above fuzzy little critter out in the field, make sure you talk to it to get extra goodies.

Of course, you might not be in the game at all, thanks to the screwy installation issues that continue to persist. If you’re still having troubles getting Phantasy Star Online 2 up and running on your machine, there’s a new and improved workaround making the circuits on Reddit as well as an official troubleshooting guide provided by the studio. Good luck!

While you’re waiting to install, read MOP Chris’ first impressions of PSO2, in which he concludes, “I’m not sure that PSO2 is completely worth the hype or worth the hoops to jump through to make it run.”

It doesn’t matter if the game can’t even be installed and played.

“if you can actually play”
is the the word for the launch of a 8 years old game.

Uh, this came out a day late. And the PSO2 day is a monthly thing that gives folks boosts and extra goodies from what I understand, so it’s not like this is some special event that they whipped up to add insult to injury or ignore the PC launch issues.

LOL, they put this out with all the issues they are having.

It’s a regular one-day event that happens every month.

Since using PSO2 Tweaker, I’ve yet to have issue getting the game launched. I understand it may not work for everyone, but it has otherwise been a godsend for me. I do highly encourage anyone with problems to give it a try.

That and the tweaker has been adjusted so it can run PSO2 independently from the sounds of it now?

From what I can tell you need to have the MS Store for the tweaker to be able to launch the NA version of the game. It does not download or patch the game from the MS Store though. I reinstalled this morning to try it out and (even though I had no issues with the MS Store version) I had no problems installing through the tweaker.

Welp my PSO2 stopped working the other day. An Xbox/store pop up shows up when i enter the game, but it’s blank and has no dialogue to click on. It disappears after a few seconds and i’m unable to bypass it to log in.

I’ma let this one simmer a bit longer before i give it another go. It’s too bad – i was actually having fun with it. Momentum is lost, for sure.

I’m pretty sure they do PSO2 Day on the 2nd of every month…

Yeah, quoted from the very top of the official post about this:

“It’s PSO2 Day! Read this article to find out more about this upcoming day, which happens on the 2nd of every month!”

Yep it runs through to 1 AM PDT on the 3rd, but that’s solely because it runs for 24 hours and starts at 1 AM PDT on the 2nd.
