I didnt know, good to know though! I also didnt know it was already the 27th tomorrow, so my comment is useless anyway sorry 😳
Nice, only been waiting 8 years.
Have we gone back to the dreamcast?
Good to know it isn't region locked
Awesome. Loved the originals so def gonna try this out!
Is this Windows 10 only?
I actually prefer these type of games when they aren't free to play where everything is earned in game as opposed to a cosmetic driven vanity contest based on the richest player. I'll stick to playing Phantasy Star Online for GameCube on Schthack servers.

If only, pso is such a legendary game, this sequel is alright...

It's listed as Windows 10, Japanese version support for windows 7 ended in January this year, knowing how Microsoft have done things in the past with certain games such as Halo 1 for PC they may have software/windows version locked for the western release, You could either download it and try it or try googling it in a day or so to see if there is any feedback on supported windows versions
why is it not showing for PC yet? I want to download it!

Or just download the Japanese version and use the English patch. I've been playing it for years.

I've been able to download it.

You need to buy it (its free) from US store ( stay on us region when prompted). Then go back to UK store and it should allow you to download/ the microsoft store

Big game at 60gb+

Tried the reddit method and it just opens the UK microsoft store app. Refreshing the uk site tab does nothing Can't seem to download it other than changing the region to US.

UPDATE - On the US site, sign in and click the "..." rather than "GET" and add it to cart. Then you can go through the checkout process (it's still $0.00). After this you can open it on the UK site and it will be there for download

***EDIT** Now resolved. Turns out I needed to update my Windows 10 to the latest version. Once it was updated the Install button became active on the windows store page.

Original post below.

I've tried this and tried the Reddit method. I got to the point where it went through the checkout process on the US site and said it was added. If I click on Install/Play it just takes me to the Microsoft Store page with the 'Install' button greyed out and if I check my library on there the game is showing but there's no install option at all. If I go back to the US store site and click the 3 dots instead and click on 'install on my devices' it comes up saying I don't have any applicable devices linked to my Microsoft account even though my laptop is definitely showing as being registered under my account. I'm using Windows 10 and I'm signed into my device with my MS account.

If I try to go through the process again it's saying I already own this game but there's still no way to actually locate it anywhere to download it.

To download it -
Add it to your cart, proceeded to checkout (free game no payment required) once done click on the install button and it should start installing.
Typical that I'm having problems with Microsoft Store. I hope to get it working this evening.
What are the actual reviews of the game like? Worth downloading?

Its free so nothing really to loose by trying it out. As it happens I put a lot of hours into PSO on Dreamcast so im biased but it was a great game (with friends ill add).

You have to change the Region settings to United States then it will be visible in the windows store for you to download, it is not region locked, you can change back the region afterwards

Start - Settings - region - United States

Thanks. I did download it from US but when I in MS store was still saying unavailable. Then I realised I had to open the app directly from Windows. Looks great the game. Is the game max res only 720p though? Also anyway to enlarge the chats/subtitles and menus please? Playing on a 1440p monitor full screen and text is little too small for me..
You can set it higher, I run it at 1080p as per my monitor maximum, before you log into the game:

Environment settings - Screen tab - tick virtual full screen mode for full screen, then - screen size for the resolution and text size to match, you can also set the max FPS.
