Greetings, Arks! A little over a month ago you stepped into Phantasy Star Online 2 in North America for the first time. During that testing period, you have joined ARKS as one of four races and chose your first class to master; you have made new friends, watched a concert in the Shopping Plaza and conquered Urgent Quests. More importantly, you shared your experiences with us, helping our efforts in finally bringing this beloved title to North America by voicing your opinions and concerns in the forums and the survey.
Today we would like to share some interesting facts about the Closed Beta Test period and your survey responses. Again, thank you for taking the time to help us improve PSO2 North America and for your incredible support. We have read your responses, and we are working hard to make sure you have the best experience possible as we continue to support PSO2 for years to come.
Let’s start by sharing the choices made by the community during the beta testing weekend! With four unique races to choose from and nine classes to master at any time, Phantasy Star Online 2 puts player choice first, encouraging experimentation even as you create your character for the first time! Here are some of your picks:
