In a press release, SEGA Games announced today that players can now download Phantasy Star Online 2 ahead of its open beta launch in North American tomorrow, March 17, 2020 starting at 6 PM PDT on Xbox One. Players can begin downloading the game now on the Microsoft Store.
The Open Beta will include fully localized text and character voices in English, spanning three years of content. In addition to the immersive original PSO2 story, the North American version will also include the most-up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese service. Players will be able to choose from four races and nine classes while tackling various missions and collecting Xbox One Achievements. They can also take a break from questing by playing one of the many Casino Mini-Games, chilling in the Alliance Quarters, or attending all-new Live Stage Events.
If you haven’t already but are interested, you can still sign up for the beta. This FAQ has some more information.
