Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2), Sega's sci-fi-themed, massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, came out eight years ago for Windows. You may not remember that in case you live in North America, since it didn't come out here in that time. It has been a solid two console generations today, but lovers of the first Phantasy Star Online will shortly enjoy the sequel. Phantasy Star Online 2 is free-to-play on the Xbox One, plus also a Windows 10 variant will launch later this season (PS4 and Nintendo Switch variants started in Japan in 2016 and 2018, but no word on US releases on those platforms has been awarded ).

The game is now in open beta, so we won't give it a critique score before it completely releases. However, even in beta form, PSO2 is a action-filled, hack-and-slash-and-shoot experience with an extensive equipment system and a discreet premium money element. PSO2's notion is straightforward. The huge space fleet Oracle is investigating the stars to locate habitable and resource-filled planets. You are a part of ARKS, Oracle's frontline task force to scout these planets and make certain they're safe. That's pretty much the entire excuse the game provides before letting you set up a character. You'll take your character through various dangerous surroundings, fighting creatures and collecting loot on the way.

The character development system offers a generous quantity of customization options. You can choose from four distinct races, each with female and male forms: Individuals, Newmans (space elves), Deumans (space dark elves), and CASTs (robot folks ). After establishing those traits, you can customize your own face and body using an assortment of characteristics. You could also add unique accessories and tweak add-on details like facial hair, scars, jewelry, and clothing. Most of these tweaks are entirely decorative, however, the race you choose can affect certain stats from the game to a minor extent.

You also select from seven starting classes. The Hunter is a melee-focused tank, the Fighter is a damage-focused, close-quarters warrior, the Ranger is a mid-distance firearms specialist, the Braver is a mix archer and katana swordfighter, the Force is a wizard-like class that could use special photon (the game's version of magic) abilities, the Bouncer is a close-quarters melee fighter and photon power consumer, and the Summoner uses pets to execute an assortment of combat purposes. Two additional courses, Gunner and Techer, are unlocked afterwards as you play.

I played a Ranger from the open beta, a class equipped with an assault rifle, a launcher, and also a melee-focused gunblade. The assault rifle is a beneficial burst-fire weapon type that sprays bursts of bullets at enemies, or may fire specialty aimed and homing shots for much more exact power. The launcher is an explosives-shooting gun that fires more gradually compared to the assault rifle, but packs a big punch with crowd-hitting splash damage.
