Phantasy Star Online 2 Closed Beta GIVEAWAY! Play PSO2 today!

We at MMOByte have been given 5 Closed Beta keys to give away to potential players interested in participating in the Xbox One Closed Beta for Phantasy Star Online 2. Participating is easy. If you weren’t already aware, the CBT starts Friday, February 7th at 5pm PST and ends Saturday, February 8th at 11:59pm PST. That’s 31 hours of CBT goodness!

About the game

PHANTASY STAR ONLINE 2 is the long-awaited online action RPG set in the distant future. You’ll join the game as a member of ARKS, a task force dedicated to searching for hospitable planets and protecting the universe against a malignant force called the Falspawn. Go out on missions solo or with a party of up to four players. You can even explore exclusive multiparty areas where up to twelve players can play simultaneously. You’ll embark on an assortment of missions with fellow operatives and experience multiplayer action RPG combat. Switch character classes at any time to find your ideal playstyle; hack-and-slash through missions with melee-based roles or take a step back and eliminate foes by using ranged or elemental attacks. You can also customize the way you play by selecting different camera settings, including an over-the-shoulder view to aim at enemies with better precision. Have fun with it and try stuff out! There’s lots to explore.

Interesting facts and tips about PSO2

This closed beta test will feature fully localized text and character voices completely re-recorded by voice actors in English.

The game will launch first on Xbox One only. We haven’t announced the launch date yet, but it is slated for this Spring. The PC version will follow (date TBA).

The character customization system is powerful and worth spending some extra time with.

There are 4 unique races and 9 classes to choose from, with 18 distinct weapon types.

Procedurally generated environments add to replayability.

Players will retain their progress from the closed beta test.

Players can claim some items after logging in and those who answer the call during “Urgent Quests” have a chance to obtain special in-game rewards that can be used when the game launches in Spring 2020.

On Friday, February 7th, there will be two “Urgent Quests” (all times PST):

8:00–8:30pm Cradle of Darkness

10:00–10:30pm Giant Automata: The Awakening

On Saturday, February 8th, there will be five more “Urgent Quests” (all times PST):

7:00–7:30am Cradle of Darkness

1:00–1:30pm Giant Automata: The Awakening

5:00–5:30pm Cradle of Darkness

8:30–9:00pm The Raging Obsidian Arm

9:00–9:30pm Elder of the Unfathomable Abyss

There will be a special in-game concert featured on Saturday night, February 8th at 8:00pm PST. Concertgoers can meet in the Ship’s Shopping Plaza for what should be a memorable performance and receive multiple buffs afterwards.

You may come across some text formatting or other issues. We are aware of some and are actively working on them, and we may find more during this testing weekend. The game is not yet final and we appreciate your patience as we squash bugs!

You can update the game that you have downloaded for the upcoming Open Beta Test and launch without having to redownload the game. That’s helpful, because the game is large, coming in at 68.4gb.
