SEGA announced this week that they will be giving TwitchCon attendees a chance to try out Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis. The team will basically have a sample of the game for you to try out in case you've never played the game before, and those who do the demo will have a chance to receive a free PSO2: NGS t-shirt and a code to redeem in-game items featuring Sonic The Hedgehog. Something fun to do and free swag to snag in case you're there.

Set 1,000 years after the events of Phantasy Star Online 2, PSO2: NGS takes place on Halpha, a planet on which ARKS (soldiers of the Oracle colony fleet in the Phantasy Star Online 2 series) are locked in a battle for dominance against the mysterious DOLLS. PSO2: NGS features new and improved action combat and character customization, allowing for more flexibility and expression than ever before. Choosing from four unique races and eight classes, players can join forces with other operatives to experience unforgettable battles and boss fights in brand new locales, with an emphasis on flowing, flashy mobility to conquer and explore sprawling open environments. Players will be able to do all of this with friends on both PC (Steam / Windows 10 / Epic Games Store), Xbox One and PlayStation 4 thanks to cross-platform play.
