Buckle up: Phantasy Star Online 2 has the mother of all escort quests for you

Armor up, Phantasy Star Online 2 fans, because you’ve got orders to deploy to your latest mission. This week, SEGA dropped a new urgent quest that could take you up to an hour to complete — if you have the chops to beat it at all.

The quest in question is Queen’s Nightmare: Earth Depths, and it sounds like a nasty escort quest in a very tricky location.

“In order to combat this Dark Falz, ARKS will be deploying a Mobile High Output Photon Particle Cannon, and operatives will need to escort it to within range of Apprentice before engaging the menace,” the dev team explained. “If this object is destroyed, retreat immediately to your Gateway Ship – as the mission will be considered a failure.”

Next year promises to be a wild ride for Phantasy Star Online 2, with its New Genesis upgrade on the way as well as a Nintendo Switch launch.

You had me at a North American switch launch. I’m going to forgive Sega and pso2 on bad quest design. New genesis looks AMAZING. I played alot of pso 2 on my gtx 1080 computer but I had alot of other more advanced games I was playing in terms of scale and graphics so I fell short. I would make pso 2 my main game right now with how it is currently if it had the cloud switch version ( love gaming on the switch way more) but now we’re getting a switch version AND genesis?. Well I know what I’m doing for 2021. It’s not a bad game and it’s f2p model is extremely fair up there with path of exile and warframe. Gonna be looking forward to this.

Side note: that’s a dumb escort quest.

Positive note: it’s a good time next year to be a switch owner. That’ll be an extreme fun experience. It’ll probably be cloud like JP so you can expect good PC quality graphics for free. I briefly was able to play the JP cloud before getting kicked off so I know. Couple that with new genesis and now you turned the switch into a pretty dominate mmo machine on the go or docked.

Pso2 offers alot. For free. With a great replay loop.

Ugh I don’t want to write this but here we are. So the switch launch you have as a hyper link goes to another news column her in massively and when you scroll down you guys just state your “hopes rest” for a switch launch. Ok ok. Before posting this comment I dug around…ALOT and the only info I could find was even the new genesis launch will remain exclusive to JP in the form of a cloud version for them. This article was extremely mis leading saying we’re getting a switch launch to click into the next article to say y’all are just resting hopes for it. Articles on massively seems to be more opinions then actual news facts. Can we get a source that it was confirmed for switch? Before anyone says JP. Keep in mind it’s already been on switch for a while since last year. I can find ZERO information were getting a North American switch release. Just mostly speculation online and one article saying new genesis for switch would be a cloud exclusive for JP. Do you guys have an insider source? Because the hyper link you Included just links to another top list for switch mmos and says in pso2’s description that your hopes rest. Can we get a source for the “confirmed” this article is stating because I was bummed out when there was zero info online and this felt like a click bait. Imm throw this up on reddit for people to see so we can zero down a source.

The switch launch y’all are referring to is for JP only and no hint of a North American launch, one reddit user gave me a lengthy schedule launch. The link was click bait since it didn’t specify JP. Pso2 has already been launched since last year on JP switch. The wording was very deceiving.

Well, in early days of guild wars 2, balthazar shrine event have the most frustrating escort quest, since the event scaled with the number of players, as more players joined the enemies become hard hitting elites which one-shot your escorted NPCs ( weirdly not scaled)

I never knew whether they fixed them or not, as I never go back to Orr

I’d rather do forced pvp than an escort quest.
