Since I’m fervently spending Season Points I earned during the Spring Event on Star Gem tickets so I can earn an N-Bunny Suit from the latest SG Scratch Ticket collection, I can’t help but think of all the great ones coming content for Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis† This game continues to evolve, with new features, skills, missions and more in the content roadmap for 2022. April 6 is just one stopover, with a list of things worth further investigation; an increase in the level cap (to 45), new Photon Arts for weapons and the introduction of Compound Techniques, new Ranks for Combat Sectors, a new DOLLS-inspired Weapon Series, some highly anticipated quality of life features, and the list goes on . If you’re already playing, read on to learn more about what’s in store for you. If you’re not playing, you’ll want to be by the end of this article!

More power

What could be better than eliminating DOLLS? Doing it faster by firing them with even higher firepower. And if you haven’t been lucky enough (or rich) enough to catch a Relik and haven’t spared your Photon Scales to upgrade the potential on your Cinque weapon, you can still increase your Battle Power through some levels to obtain. This shouldn’t be too difficult as there’s a new round of Limited Quests and a new set of battle sectors, as well as a new DOLLS-inspired, 5-star Rarity Weapon Series. The Kukuhroziat (the weapons are much easier to handle than their name suggests) Weapon Series are inspired by the look of DOLLS and have a unique weapon potential that will come in handy for future game content. Oh, and did I mention there’s a color variant?

More skill

Assuming you are adept at performing Photon Arts or successfully releasing techniques, you can send DOLLS with more finesse. ARKS instructors have been hard at work fine-tuning new Photon Arts for all weapons and creating composite techniques for those able to handle photons directly. I’ve had it raining on my enemies as a gunner for quite some time (ie using the PA Aimless Rain), but now that Infinite Ricochet comes out I’ll soon be able to spray Photon Bullets with that. Or I’ll switch to the Force class and combine elements to destroy bad guys with Barantsion or some other Compound technique. But since you can wield all weapons and play as each class on the same character, I’ll probably do both. Hell, I can even try the Fighter class and cut and dice with Twin Daggers so I can use the Limber Figure Photon Art because nothing is more dangerous than a whirlwind of knives. And having an area of ​​effect will be extra helpful as there are also new enemies called Equalizer enemies. With the ability to defensively buffer nearby enemies, it’s a good idea to aim fire at them – and there’s no better way to do it than with a powerful new Photon Art of Technique!

PSE Bursts are just one of my favorite things about NGS as nothing says hostile panic like getting blasted by a horde of enemies for just destroying them too fast. if you played PSO2 then you know the true joy of hearing Cross Burst of One More which would be a signal second PSE Burst event takes place, in which you can merrily continue to slaughter enemies and bring in loot and Exp. I am happy to say that the DOLLS from NGS adopt this field tactic – and you’ll be head over heels in enemies after the April 6 update. You can really take advantage of this new development by growing PSE Bursts in the new Rank 3 Combat Sectors, which are also included in this update.

Easy on an adventure

The above are just a few pieces of new content included in this update, but some other changes are coming as well. The community has been asking for an easier way to recruit party members and Sega has delivered it with the Party Recruitment system. Recruit players from the same room by using the Communication menu to set the purpose of your party and the requirements to join. Others will be able to see that you are recruiting from the special icon that appears above your character and then they can select the appropriate option from Nearby Characters in the communication menu. Not only that, but for those who just want to capture a picturesque moment while exploring, there’s now a Photo Room feature so you can remove photo-bombing DOLLS and capture that perfect shot. You can even adjust the time of day or the weather to suit your artistic vision. Perhaps most notable for content creators, this update includes a Streamer mode, which will disable Chat while you’re sharing your screen. For Phashionistas there is now an option to show or hide your Innerwear. So if you want to equip a skin-bearing Basewear, but only have full-coverage Innerwear, your fashion snafu will go unnoticed.

There’s a lot more in this update, so the best way to learn more is to play Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis – for free – by going to the Xbox Store and downloading the game for PC or Xbox.
