Before the December update, a new collaboration with Attack on Titan begins November 17th! The “Titans of Destruction” Scratch Ticket goes live with outfits from the iconic anime/manga series. Additionally, Central City is decorated for the collaboration with the Colossal Titan.
Starting November 24th, players can get ready for the Retem region with login bonuses and campaigns! Limited time tasks will be added with rewards like Star Gems and materials. The next Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis Headline presentation arrives on December 7th with more new details. Catch up on the latest footage and even more details below:
As Chapter 2 unfolds, Crawford will ask players to make a trip to Retem with Aina and Manon to join the ARKS in Retem City. Retem is a desert with sand dunes, rocky terrain, and canyons. Players will notice the weather and vegetation are vastly different from what they’re used to in Aelio. There’s so much to explore, but watch out for new enemies, Fortos Launcher, Fortos Laser: DOLLS, Lizentos: DOLLS, and Metius: DOLLS! All are equipped with heavy artillery and prove themselves to be formidable foes. The new field, Retem Region, awaits!
The “Sandstorm Requiem” update will increase the level cap of all classes to 35 and every Class will gain a new Class Skill.
Hunter Class will gain the ‘Sword Arts Change Avenger’ skill
Fighter Class will gain the ‘Dagger Spin Axle’ skill
Ranger Class will gain the ‘Spread Shot Wide Range’ skill
Gunner Class will gain the ‘Rising Drive’ skill
Force Class will gain the ‘Technique Domination’ skill
Techter Class will gain the ‘Overemphasis’ skill
Braver Class will gain the ‘Brave Spirit’ skill
Bouncer Class will gain the ‘Blade Arts Parry’ skill
Three Elemental Techniques will be added to the current Techniques; Wind, Light, and Dark will join Fire, Ice, and Lightning.
Show off your skills and achievements to the world! PSO2:NGS will be implementing a Title system in the “Sandstorm Requiem” update. Players can earn titles based on in-game achievements, such as defeating a certain amount of enemies, completing Trainia with an S ranking, and more.
