If you didn’t get a chance to check out Phantasy Star Online 2 earlier, you have another shot at playing the game with a new open beta set for March 17.
According to a post on Xbox Wire:
In Phantasy Star Online 2, you are a member of ARKS, a task force dedicated to exploring numerous planets and protecting the universe against a malignant force called the Falspawn. Embark on a never-ending assortment of missions with fellow operatives and experience unparalleled action RPG combat, completely free to play.
Having spent absurd amounts of time playing the first game on PC through a translation and on dial-up, seeing a sequel to a game I cherished at a young age is giving me hope it turns out as well as the first game.
With upwards of four players working together to explore and take on missions, there’s a lot to do as a team. Also, Phantasy Star Online 2 comes with responsive action combat as you battle your way through enemies and bosses with your skills and across 9 classes and 18 weapons types.
