PSO2 on Steam: How to Link Your Account

Ready to bring your PSO2 experience to Steam? Or want the ability to play through Windows 10, Steam, or from your couch with an Xbox One? If so, then check out this must-read article to learn about linking your Steam and Xbox Live accounts!

Fleet Oracle has gained a few new bells and whistles to add to the pool of features Arks are already familiar with. Perhaps most notably, there’s a new way to drive your experience of Phantasy Star Online 2–using Steam! That’s right operatives, that “other PC platform” has arrived. Along with the release of the Steam platform of PSO2, an account-linking feature has been added that will allow accounts used on Xbox One and Windows 10 to be played on Steam, therefore preserving your past play-time.


ATTENTION: Do not start Phantasy Star Online 2 on a new platform until you fully understand this account-linking process. Creating a character/setting up a Player ID on a new platform is irreversible and you will not be able to link your account after the fact.

 



LINKING YOUR ACCOUNTS

There are two ways to link your Xbox Live and Steam accounts; initiating the process from the Steam platform, or from the Xbox One or Windows 10 platform. In each case, you’ll begin the process from the platform that you have been using. We’ll outline the process for both.

 

If you’d like to begin using the Steam platform to play PSO2 and want to link your Xbox One or Windows 10 account:

  • From the Support Menu within the Start Menu of the Windows 10 or Xbox One version of PSO2, select the option to issue an account-linking code. This code will expire after 15 minutes.
  • After launching PSO2 on the Steam platform, select your Ship and then enter the code from the previous step. Please be careful: you can only use this code when setting up your account on a new platform for the first time. Do not create a new character/set up a Player ID before linking your account.
  • Success! The operative can now play using the same PSO2 save data on either their Xbox Live or Steam Account ID.




If you’d like to begin using the Xbox One or Windows 10 platform to play PSO2 and want to link your Steam account:

  • From the Support Menu within the Start Menu of the Steam platform of PSO2, select the option to issue an account-linking code. This code will expire after 15 minutes.
  • After launching PSO2 on Windows 10 or Xbox One, select your Ship and then enter the code from the previous step. Please be careful: you can only use this code when setting up your account on a new platform for the first time. Do not create a new character/set up a Player ID before linking your account.
  • Success! The operative can now play using the same PSO2 save data on either their Xbox Live or Steam account.


*Entering the account-linking code is only possible during the first-time log-in when using the new platform.

**The same account-linking code cannot be used more than twice.

***If the first account-linking code is not used, and a new one is issued, only the newest account-linking code will be active.

****If a user inputs the account-linking code incorrectly, 10 times in a row, after the 10th time the user will not be able to link accounts until 24 hours have passed. This measure is for the safety of your account.





UNLINKING YOUR ACCOUNT FROM YOUR SECONDARY PLATFORM

You cannot unlink your account from the first platform that you used to play PSO2. This process is non-reversible, so make sure it’s what you really want, operative! In each case, you’ll begin the process from the secondary platform you would like to discontinue using. We’ll outline the process for both.

 

If you’d like to discontinue usage of the Steam platform and it is not the original platform you used to connect to PSO2:

  • Log-in to PSO2 from the Steam platform using the Steam account that you’d like to Unlink.
  • Select “Unlink Account” from the Start Menu of PSO2.
  • Confirm your desire to Unlink your accounts by entering the specified key in the confirmation window and selecting “Yes”.
  • Your PSO2 save data on your Steam account will be deleted.


If you’d like to discontinue usage of the Windows 10 or Xbox One platform and it is not the original platform your used to connect to PSO2:

  • Log-in to PSO2 from the Windows 10 or Xbox One platform using the Xbox Live account that you’d like to Unlink.
  • Select “Unlink Account” from the Start Menu of PSO2.
  • Confirm your desire to Unlink your accounts by entering the specified key in the confirmation window and selecting “Yes”.
  • Your PSO2 save data on your Xbox Live account will be deleted.


 

We’re thrilled to bring operatives together through these different platforms, as well as enlist the aid of Arks from an additional 33 countries! August 5th marks the beginning of not only the newest Episode in Phantasy Star Online 2, but the birth of an expanded PSO2 Community as well, and we couldn’t be more excited! See you in the Lobby, Arks!
