Phantasy Star Online Episode III: C.A.R.D. Revolution expands the PSO universe, offering a new style of strategic combat. Combining the excitement of card collection and deck settings with team-based battle tactics, PSO Episode III allows users to chat in the lobby about status upgrades and tactics, and then journey to the planet surface to engage in strategic combat using a turn-based Card system. The game continues the story arc of the previous PSO games, as players once again become Hunters and explore the mysteries of the planet Ragol. Featuring both online and offline play, as well as multiplayer modes, PSO Episode III adds new content and players to the ever-growing PSO community.
It's 21 years after the time of Pioneer 2's exploration of Ragol. Several
things have happened in these 21 years. The population of living things
on Ragol has decreased sharply. The job of being a hunter has changed.
A new generation is born and new characters have emerged.
