SEGA has unleashed a new trailer to Phantasy Star Online 2. The sequel to the original console MMORPG is about to receive a new content patch that’ll make every gamer happy. Well, everyone that can currently access the game. The Japanese-language trailer reveals the new Duman (Dewman) race, a new planet and, naturally, a horde of new loot, including the Katana and Bow.
The Episode 2 update will also unlock a second character for all players, the new maptype dubbed Coast, the Braver class type and more mobs to farm. Unconfirmed data mining suggests that new skills have been added alongside a skill tree revamp. The changes will result in skill reset items being distributed to players.
The four-plus-minute trailer is available after the cut with some accompanying screenshots. Western gamers remain holding their breath for their option to join the 2.5+ million players already collecting loot. SEGA revealed no news on the game’s anticipated North American launch at E3 2013, leaving the “delayed” state from mid-March as the most recent status.
Episode 2 will launch on July 17, 2013 for current audiences and introduce additional story elements. Read more…
