Sony fans, be surprised! phantasy Star Online 2 is finally coming to the PlayStation 4 in the West… a decade after its initial PC release in Japan. The ARPG will be released on PS4 on August 31st, six years after it was released on PS4 in Japan and more than a year after it was released on Xbox and PC in the West.
It will be cross-platform compatible and free to play, just like the other console versions, and will bear the “New Genesis” sub-title with fully localized text and character voices in English (thanks, Polygon).
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis was released in the West last summer, but only on Xbox and PC. It was described as the “next-generation” of Phantasy Star Online 2, catapulting the action forward 1,000 years after the Oracle’s battle in PSO2.
As Matt explained at the time, it comes with a new graphics engine, enhanced character models, a new multi-weapon system, and, most importantly, a “wide-open battlefield” with changing time and weather that can be traversed using new abilities like the Photon Dash and Photon Glide.
Sega previously stated that character creation and avatars would be compatible between Phantasy Star Online 2 and New Genesis, with the former’s weapons, units, and mags usable in New Genesis, as well as other data such as emotes, Star Gems, and Arks Cash. Levels, EXP, skills, photon arts, techniques, and currency affecting the game economy, on the other hand, are not transferable.
