Sega shares more on the big PSO 2 New Genesis February Update


It’s coming on February 9

The PSO 2 New Genesis February Update is coming soon, and it’ll raise the level cap to 40, among a few other big additions.

All this news comes via the “NGS Headline” stream, which is a periodic show that recaps things coming to New Genesis, as well as recent happenings with the development team. In addition to a ton of gameplay and content news, we also got word that music from the Phantasy Star series would be coming to “download and streaming platforms,” starting this week. That includes works from PSO (the original), PSO Episode 3 Card Revolution, and PSO Blue BurstPSO 2 songs are “coming soon.”

Here are the main elements of the New Genesis February Update:

  • Level cap will be raised to 40
  • Chapter 2 in the newly added Chapter 2 Side Story.
  • Rank 3 will be added to Mt Magnus and Vanford Laboratory Ruins
  • Rank 2 will be added to Resol Forest
  • Rank 2 Battledias will be added to Aelio
  • Rank 2 of every Urgent Quest will be available across regions
  • An increased chance for Chaos Trials
  • A new enemy type, Megalotix

As is customary, it was capped off by an “Operation Report,” which highlights (sometimes cutting) questions from the community, and the developer response.

Here’s a recap of that bit:

  • More CAST parts are coming in 2022, now that a system is in place to produce them quicker
  • The team is planning to release more tickets for revival (classic) items by popular demand
  • There are no plans to release weapons more significant than the Relik series in the near future
  • There are no plans to change the schedule of the new level cap of 60 in June, but after that, level caps will slow down
  • The team is going to increase Meseta drops for “specific enemies” (to not change the economy too much) starting in February
