Sega has announced that Phantasy Star Online 2 and Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be released for PS4 in the West on August 31st. The action MMORPG has been available in Japan since July 2012 for PC and on PS4 since April 2016. It first launched in the West for Xbox One and PC in 2020.

As a free-to-play title, Phantasy Star Online 2 offers tons of story content, dungeons, and more along with fast-paced real-time action. New Genesis is a standalone experience (which still uses the same game application) and offers wide-open environments to explore and battle in. It also offers enhanced visuals for better lighting, particle effects and character models.

Combat-wise, players can use two types of weapons for extensive combos. Cross-platform play is already available for Xbox One and PC players but the PS4 version will also receive support at launch, as per a separate press release. Stay tuned for more details and updates in the coming months.
