Not long ago, GameCube Phantasy Star Online: Episodes 1&2 players were given a pair of new quests to tackle.
"Labyrinthine Trial" is a VR quest that can only be 100% cleared by a party of four. The group's objective is to scour the planet Ragol and find 30 capsules. Afterwards, the principal gives the party a hunter's report and grades the performance. The grade of A will earn a much-coveted White Ring.
The second quest, called "Today's Rate," is all about simple extermination. The goals are to prevent the disclosure of secret research to the outside world, destroy a certain host computer, and clear out all of the many Ragol beasts that will surely get in the way. This quest also involves a cameo appearance by Dr. Montague, who some players may remember from the Dreamcast version.
Both of these quests are online-exclusive and require multiple gamers for their undertaking. Check back for updates on other new PSO missions in the future.
