Phantasy Star Online 2 at PAX

Phantasy Star Online 2

As you may have heard, Phantasy Star Online 2 will be at the Penny Arcade Expo next week – for fans of the game, we know you’re eager to hear more, so let’s cut to the chase! Here’s what’s going on with Phantasy Star Online 2 at PAX:

Playable PSO2 Demo + Character Creator

Join other PSO2 fans and battle your way through part of the game, customized for PAX! Explore, battle through random events, work together with your ad-hoc PAX crew, and experience a boss fight!

We will also have the character creator on-hand – and we are looking forward to seeing what sort of fabulous creations you make at the show. The game’s powerful character creation tool is truly one of its more delightful aspects, and I have no doubts that the imaginarium of the Penny Arcade Expo’s hallowed halls will inspire you to wonderful creative heights. Please note the character creator and playable demo will be set up separately, so you can get in line for either if you’re attending.

PSO2: Rare Loot

For everyone who comes by the SEGA booth and plays the demo (or tries the character creator), we have an exclusive Phantasy Star Online 2 mousepad giveaway, featuring art from the game!

We have already sent the loot to Seattle in shiny, shiny red boxes, so we’ll post images when we’re there, but just imagine this image, only on a mousepad:

See you in Seattle!
