What’s coming next for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis? Is it a new Scratch Ticket? Well, yes, but there is also some new playable content arriving to the MMO, which was outlined in a developer livestream at the beginning of the month.
This new content will feature a new region called Retem, which will be about the size of the current region of Aelio and will introduce the second chapter of the MMO’s storyline. The broadcast closed with a preview of this new zone, showcasing a desert landscape full of oases, several structures including at least one techno-pyramid, and some fluffy camel critters.
On the subject of additional content, the devs acknowledge that a lack of things to do in PSO2: NGS is a problem, and the team is working on releasing a higher volume of content updates after the December update. The stream also talks about Urgent Quest spawn times, plans for a preset skills transfer function for items, and an upcoming new Mag sonar function that will track down gatherables like minerals or vegetables.
The devs have put out a very tiny roadmap for the time being, but players can look forward to another information-filled livestream on November 2nd, with more details about Retem and updates arriving in November. For now, you can watch the full livestream from earlier this month below.
