Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis Adds Slayer Class, Chapter 5 Story
Sega released new information about its planned April 2023 updates for MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis. The primary additions are the new Slayer class and Chapter 5 of the game’s main story. The game will also be celebrating its second anniversary with limited-time events starting on April 19, 2023. A full NGS Headline presentation detailing the content of the updates and events can be viewed below.
The Slayer class will be available from April 12, 2023. It is a ranged class that uses the new Gunblade weapon type and specialises in quick sequences of attacks. Players will be able to get hold of the new Gunblade weapons from in-game drops and tasks from April 5, 2023, but will not be able to equip them until the Slayer class is released.
The Chapter 5 content will release on April 5, 2023, taking players to a new massive structure floating in the sky. Known as Leceil, it is said to contain the secrets of the Halpha.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis takes place 1,000 years after the events of Phantasy Star Online 2, with both titles running alongside each other. New Genesis is set on a new world and features a redesigned graphics engine, as well as a new multi-weapon system and abilities. The game is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
