Phantasy Star Online 2 Open Beta (for Xbox One) Preview from Ruify's blog

You may not remember that if you live in North America, because meseta pso2 it did not come out here in the time. It's been a strong two console generations now, but lovers of the original Phantasy Star Online will shortly enjoy the sequel. Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently free-to-play on the Xbox One, plus a Windows 10 variant will launch later this year (PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions launched in Japan in 2016 and 2018, but no word on US releases on these platforms has been awarded ). The game is now in open beta, so we won't give it a critique score until it fully releases. However, even in beta form, PSO2 is a action-filled, hack-and-slash-and-shoot experience with an extensive equipment system and an unobtrusive premium money element.

PSO2's notion is straightforward. The massive shuttle Oracle is exploring the stars to locate habitable and resource-filled planets. You are part of ARKS, Oracle's frontline task force to scout these planets and ensure they're secure. That's pretty much the entire excuse the game provides before allowing you to set up a character. You will take your personality through different harmful environments, fighting creatures and collecting loot on the way. The character development system offers a generous quantity of customization options.

You can choose from four distinct races, each with female and male forms: Humans, Newmans (space elves), Deumans (distance dark elves), and CASTs (robot people). After establishing those traits, you can personalize your own face and body using a variety of characteristics. You can also add different accessories and tweak add on details such as facial hair, scars, jewelry, and clothing. Most of these tweaks are completely decorative, but the race you choose can affect certain stats in the game to a minor extent.

You also pick from seven beginning classes. Two additional classes, Gunner and Techer, are unlocked later as you play. I played as a Ranger from the open beta, a class equipped with an assault rifle, a launcher, and a melee-focused gunblade. The assault rifle is a useful burst-fire weapon type that sprays bursts of bullets at enemies, or can fire specialization aimed and homing shots for more precise power. The launcher is an explosives-shooting gun that fires more slowly than the assault rifle, but packs a big punch with crowd-hitting splash damage. The gunblade is a sword with a gun built to it, made for close-quarters fighting. Each weapon has its own selection of skills and abilities, triggered with all the X, Y, and right bumper buttons, along with a secondary set of 3 skills brought up by holding down the left trigger for a total of six at a time.

Gear can get complex, with every weapon and item having its own sets of stats which improve your personality, together with characteristics that offer additional bonuses. You can prepare for battle easily enough by simply equipping the items that have the greatest numbers, but actually digging into the stats which help your personality and keeping an eye out for PSO2 Meseta for sale specific perks is worthwhile.
