• PSO2 (JP) January 9th Content Update - The Clones Have Arrived!

    Today's content update for Phantasy Star Online 2 (JP) brings a new, and highly anticipated, escape quest and Arkz clone emergency trial. In the new quest, players will be abducted and transported to the Darker's Den (this happens randomly when starting a quest), where they will have to escape with their lives. Those who escape and are deemed powerful enough will be cloned by the darkers and will appear in a rare emergency trial. It will be possible to face clones of yourself, as well as friends, with increased rewards for defeating them.

    Initial information on this update was posted back in December in a previous story and additional details, as well as a teaser video, can be found here. The technical specs of this patch are as follows:

  • Update Size: 60MB
  • Launcher Version: 01.05.01
  • Game Version: 1.0201.5
  • First Time Download Size: 5.4GB

  • We'll update this article with more details as they become available. In the meantime, be sure to check out the above thread, where info on the update is being consolidated (thanks Sasuga!). This first update of the year is looking to be a lot of fun and we're looking forward to the stories of PSOW members defeating (or being defeated by) each other's clones!

      Actually, they've made a new Roadmap for Early 2013... It's pretty similar though... They're even raising the level cap to 55 in like March... :/

      I don't think they've actually released their 2013 roadmap yet, but I know they've talked about their plans for 2013 a couple times during interviews, etc. Here are a couple of related articles that contain some of this info:

      Also, for reference, their 2012 Roadmap is linked and discussed here.
