Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming next year to the United States and Canada, as Microsoft announced during their E3 2019 conference. At last, fans of the Sci-Fi online multiplayer roleplaying game made by SEGA will be able to play the game in the English language.
Today we learned that the Closed Beta test is coming soon on Xbox One, with signups already open. Interested Xbox gamers will have the chance to do so simply by launching the Xbox Insider Hub application, then selecting Phantasy Star Online 2 under the Games tab.
PSO 2 is due for release in Spring 2020 for Xbox One. It's also coming to Windows 10 PC later in 2020, with cross-play available between the two platforms. Sadly, European countries haven't received the green light yet from SEGA.
