“Phantasy Star Online 2 Beta Dated for Xbox One in North America”
Considering how much coverage we’ve given to Phantasy Star Online 2 in the years it wasn’t available in the west, it would be cruel not to post about its upcoming North American beta. Players in the United States and Canada who signed up can look forward to digging into the beta on Xbox One for two days only, February 7 and 8.
Sega has events planned for the beta period, and pre-loading will be available starting February 3, so you won’t have to spend too much time downloading the game itself during that incredibly short beta window. It all starts on February 7 at 5:00pm Pacific Time.
Those who play can look forward to some login bonuses. Here are some of the quests and their respective timing, via Xbox Wire:
FEBRUARY 7TH QUESTS
8 to 8:30 p.m. PT – Cradle of Darkness
10 to 10:30 p.m. PT – Giant Automata: The Awakening
FEBRUARY 8TH QUESTS
