Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis April 6th update adds new weapons, Streamer Mode & more

    SEGA released a new update for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis today, April 6th (Thanks, 4Gamer)! The new update adds new Photon Arts, weapons, in-game features and much more. Read up on more details below, courtesy of SEGA:

    Tokyo, April 6, 2022 – SEGA today announced that a slew of updates and new content has gone live in Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis, including a level cap increase, new Photon Arts for weapons and the introduction of Compound Techniques, new Ranks for Combat Sectors, a new DOLLS-inspired Weapon Series, some long-anticipated quality of life features, and more.

    Today’s update will raise the level cap to 45. ARKS instructors have been hard at work refining new Photon Arts for all weapons and creating Compound Techniques for those capable of directly wielding Photons. One Photon Art will be added to most weapons, excluding rods, tails and wands. Rods, tails, and wands will be receiving three new types of Compound Techniques, which are powerful Class Skills activated by consuming a special power gauge.

    There will be many updates in the newest region, Retem. New High Ranked Sectors will be added to the Retem Alnothe Combat Sector. Players can take advantage of this new development by farming PSE Bursts in the new Rank 3 Combat Sectors. Two new Retem Urgent Quests debut in Retem’s High-Rank Sectors; enemies increase the attack and defense of other enemies around them but defeating them will reward players with a large amount of Meseta and an occasional Arms Refiner drop. Gigantix will be raised to level 49 and DOLLS in Aelio and Retem will now drop DOLLS-themed Kukuhroziat weapons. The Kukuhroziat Series were inspired by the look of DOLLS and have a unique Weapon Potential that’ll come in handy for future game content.

    The new Party Recruitment system makes it easier than ever to find new players to play with. Recruit players from the same Room by using the Communications menu to set the purpose of your party and requirements to join. Others will be able to identify that you’re recruiting by the special icon that appears above your character and then they can select the appropriate option from Nearby Characters in the Communications Menu.

    Dedicated photo rooms will now let players take photos without enemies and change the weather! Playlist function is being added to the mag jukebox so players can play their favorite in-game songs one after the other automatically. Streamer Mode will help Streamers show off their gameplay, while disabling Chat during screensharing. Players can keep up to date with specific rare drops through custom notifications.
