Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis Gets New Update On December 15

SEGA has a new update coming to Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis next week that will bring about new content and an event. The update is being called the "Sandstorm Requiem" and it will come with some changes to how things operate, like the increase the level cap of all classes to 35 and every Class will gain a new Class Skill. They're also adding in three Elemental Techniques as Wind, Light, and Dark will join Fire, Ice, and Lightning. A title system is also being added as you can earn titles based on in-game achievements, like defeating a certain number of enemies, for example.

Another new addition will be World Trials, which are large-scale events that will occur on all Ships. According to the team, "unlike normal Trials, they will occur over multiple Sectors for an extended period of time. For example, the objective of the World Trial: Stella Grace Recovery Operation is to collect as much of the Stellar Grace that appears in the Exploration Sectors as possible within the time limit to receive rewards!"

The update will go live in the game on December 15th, 2021. You can check out more from the video below.
