Phantasy Star Online 2 Will Be Enhanced for Xbox One X

If you’re planning to play Phantasy Star Online 2 on an Xbox One X, the game’s official account has confirmed that the online RPG will receive enhanced features.

Phantasy Star Online 2 on Xbox One X will include 4K support and an expanded user interface display size.

It’s unclear what exaclty they mena by “expanded UI display size”.

But it could refer to either increasing the overall size of text, improving visual contrast to make viewing easier or even a combination of both.

The Beta Starts This Week

An Xbox One closed beta for Phantasy Star Online 2 is set to take place on Friday 7th February at 5pm PST, finishing on the Sunday at 12am PST. Click here to sign up for the beta.

During the closed beta you’ll get the opportunity to earn exclusive in-game rewards and experience that carries when the game releases.

A Windows PC version is scheduled to be coming later.

There is still time to sign up and pre-load the game ready to play on the 7th.

The closed beta for the game (still just confirmed for North America currently) will feature fully localized English-language text and voices Sega have said.

Beta testers will get some cosmetic and consumable items for logging in, as well as daily rewards for playing the game.

The game was later ported the game to mobile platforms, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. This is the first time the game has been localized.

Phantasy Star Online 2 was announced during Microsoft’s E3 2019 presentation, but Phil Spencer has confirmed the game is not an Xbox exclusive.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is expected to launch on PC and Xbox One at some point in Spring 2020.

Though there is still no news of a release in Europe, the Middle East or Africa.
