Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis, or better known as PSO2: NGS is releasing it’s First Closed Beta Test on 14th May. This has been in the talks for over a year.
What we know so far is, PSO2 NGS will be a totally different game but at the same time, it will be in the same world but with updated graphics and engine.
What this means in, anything considered “Character Growth Feature” will not be shared, such as levels, titles and gear.
All the fashion will be shared in NGS, however, they may be slight variations with the designs.
This is a very interesting knew concept, as most of the “new releases” of an updated version such as Cabal and Maplestory were all either new standalone MMORPG or an upgrade to it’s system such as Aion, Tera or Forsaken World.
Either way, with just under a month left, we will see how they integrate this new “Character Growth System” into play.
Some people may know, Closed Beta Applications starts on the April 22nd 2020.
With their first official closed Beta Test between May 15 and May 17. GMT+10 Time.
However, I am very disappointed so far as per say already as registration signs up is via Xbox Insider Hub App only.
That app itself is a complete mess, not only does it crash when it loads up, but on my few PC devices I tried it on, I have never successfully opened it.
It looks like I am unable to sign up during this Beta as Xbox Insider Hub App just does not work for me.
Maybe we’ll see closer to the date.
They have hinted that all the people who participated in the upcoming PSO2:NGS Global CBT will receive a reward that will be revealed at a later date.
So maybe it’s time to get that app working !?
