Xbox - Phantasy Star Online 2 - Free @ Microsoft Store

Posted 31st Mar

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A few weeks ago PSO2 finally came to Xbox and the west following 8 years in Japan. As we are in lockdown this game offers a lot of gameplay, levelling your character and playing in small party’s

Phantasy Star Online 2 is a free-to-play online action role-playing game in the Phantasy Star series developed and published by Sega.

To play on Xbox - you need to change your region on the Xbox temporarily or visit the US Microsoft store above and push the download to your Xbox.

To change your region on Xbox, settings >system>language&location then change the location to United States.

The reason why this game is only on the US store is due to language issues. If the game had been released within Europe then there would have been a requirement to support all languages including German/Spanish etc. By targeting a US release they only need to ensure it’s in English.

Once you have downloaded the game you can switch your region back to UK.

I remember when this was on dreamcast and buying a 100m telephone cable (was far too big) so I could "sneak" a connection from that to the phone line down the stairs at my parents house at night, nearly killed my dad with him tripping over the cable and falling down the stairs, not a clue how I wasnt beaten to death at the time but survived. Ok game

Not sure - I know PC players can get the Xbox app and play games that way, but think it requires live to do that. Hopefully a pc player with Xbox app can confirm.

xbox live is meant to be crossplatform and for both pc and xbox i think

i really dont know how it works and the mircosoft website doesnt explain it

All i know is there is microsoft store for pc gamers but it used to be called windows live

everyone uses steam but how does microsoft fit in to the pc world?

The gameplay wasn't laggy for me, but sometimes I do end up with unkillable enemies for a short period of time as the server isn't reading my damage. It's not perfect and certainly not the same as if it had UK servers, but perfectly reasonable.
Thanks
Hurry up PC release

I did not even need to do that, on the OP's link when you click on English UK it will not let you download it to you Xbox, just refresh the page and click English US then it allows you to push it to your Xbox

Thanks OP

I started off on Dreamcast also. That and Quake 3 were my games.

Only issue with PSO on the Dreamcast was the console and game created a specific key and you couldn’t play your character on another console. My laser went on mine so I had to buy a second console and swap the lasers over. I wasn’t loosing countless hours on my character
Is there a single player mode?

It won’t come out in Europe, so just enjoy this, it is a very good game but at first you feel a little out of comfort but you can pick it up after a few hours, the game is massive so much to do and lots of loot, rares!

I sunk many hours into PSO and PSO v2 on the DC. Even after the EU servers closed there was a way to get onto the Japanese ones and still pay subs to play. Those were fun times!

Can you play it if you switch back the location to the UK?
I remember my mate has his account hacked on Dreamcast and his character stolen after he'd spend doZens of hours levelling up and kitting her out. He was not a happy bunny.
Just to add - if anyone is playing and fancy’s some games/quests then pm me your Xbox tag.

Also if people didn’t know - mouse and keyboard is supported on this game. Some people use keyboard and controller, as casting/using skills/items is much faster with the keyboard.

Yes mate - I have covered that in the description as I

Well it’s still phantasy star
No need to change location just click on link and go through US store and download it to your xbox
Brilliant , didn’t know I would get to play this in UK. Downloading now ... 70gb later ..
I don't play often but I'm on ship 1. I'm also an OG from Dreamcast v1/v2 and Xbox (as well as Blue Burst on PC private servers).

Microsoft store
One of my all time favourites back in the Dreamcast days

I also had the GameCube version and the controller with a built in keyboard

Going to give this a try, cheers
