Furthermore, with the global Steam launch, PSO2 will be moving into Episode 4, which is set 2 years after the events of Episode 3. Episode 4 increases the level cap to level 80, Photon Arts and Technique levels to 17, new skills will be available from levels 76-80, there will be a brand new PvP Arena added into the game called the BATTLE ARENA, for players to dominate one another and tesst their abilities, a brand new PSO2 Friends List as opposed to Xbox Live Friend List, additional character slots, new ARKS Missions, Universal Ship for Battle Arena and Challenge Quests, BONUS Quests for extra EXP, Meseta and materials, new Seasonal Events, New Alliance Quarters in Tokyo, the Battleship and Lunar Surface, characters from the Phantasy Star Online 2 Anime series will appear on the ship, and will be capable of joining your group to tackle content, there’ll be new Titles to earn, new enemy types to engage in combat, new quest types, entirely new areas to explore, the ability to preview purchased in the Fresh Finds Shop, you’ll have the ability to automatically send Material Items to the Storehouse, and the Season 6 Mission Pass.
Players will also gain the ability to craft. You can craft from your Personal Quarters or the Mini-Room, allowing players to craft a variety of different items and gear. Players will be able to explore Earth, which was honestly one of the more interesting areas to me. But most important of all is the new Story being added into the game. All of which, once again, will be available tomorrow, August 5th 2020. Now if only the Steam launch of the game goes better than the previous PC launch on to the Microsoft Store..
