Tomorrow’s patch day for Phantasy Star Online 2, SEGA announced today, complete with new trailer and pics too. Episode 5 begins tomorrow, meaning that the “road to episode 5” content is nearing completion tonight.
“In Episode 5, following the aid of those on Earth, players discover a mysterious portal that leads to another dimension, called Omega. This world seems driven purely by fantasy, a world of swords and magic instead of technology and science. Laser swords clash with cold steel as the two worlds stand in direct contrast with each other, and as the story progresses, players will frequently move between them while observing the strange similarities these worlds share. Simultaneously, a mysterious woman who calls herself Alma appears, and she seems to have information about Omega and – strangely – about ARKS.”
The episode is expected to drop the new hero class, bump the level cap to 90, add new ARKS missions, plus new loot, events, enemies – the works. “In addition, a new quest type called Buster Quests will be added,” says SEGA. “Buster Quests are similar to raids, but also feature base defense elements. Players will need to work together in two alternating phases to achieve victory – gathering and protecting resources in the Defense phase, and empowering siege weapons to destroy the enemy castle in the Buster phase.”
