Phantasy Star Online 2

SEGA has announced the release of the first major content update of 2021 for Phantasy Star Online 2. The new update brings an increased level of difficulty for those seeking a challenge. In addition, the new Luster Class has arrived, the level cap has increased to 100, and a new Story Quest made its debut.

PSO2 players looking for new challenges will want to check out the new Ultra Hard quests to track down Persona the Masked. A pair of Urgent Quests have been added that will send players after him. Those looking for even more challenging play can pick up an Extreme Pass to “tackle one of the new Extreme Quests”.

Anyone looking to try something completely new gameplay-wise will want to look into the new Scion Class: Luster. This is a high-speed class that utilizes furious Gunblades and any one of three different combat styles.

To tackle this class, players must have attained at least level 75 on two different classes. Lusters can shoot an Evasion Shot, which allows them to fire off a ranged attack while moving and become invulnerable for a brief period following firing. The diverse Gunblade allows for close and ranged combat making the Luster deadly at any range and truly versatile in combat. Players can expend Luster Gunblade Focus and activate enhanced actions through defeating enemies; enhanced actions include Enhanced Attack, Enhanced Shot, and Enhanced Arts.

Other notable components of the update include:

  • New Summoner Pet – Vulcan S
  • New level cap of 100
  • Story Quest Chapter 6
