Phantasy Star Online 2 launched on Steam earlier this month to great reception. Since then, the game’s population has surged with new players. However, the game was already doing exceptionally well during Episode 3 as well. Players defeated the Profound Darkness and achieved the goal of Fleet Oracle. Sega is thrilled to say the least, and has launched a celebration to reward players for their progress in the fight against evil. The Phantasy Star Online 2 event began yesterday and will continue through August 26 for a full week of rewards.
Players are able to receive the rewards in several different ways. The easiest of which is by simply logging on to the game and enjoying free EXP 100,000 cards. Show up every day, and you can easily net a total of 2 million EXP. That’s not all though. An active EXP modifier will add an additional 100% boost to all completed Quests.
If the EXP rewards aren’t already enough incentive to play every day, Sega has another interesting proposition. Players who log on for at least five days during the event will be entered into a raffle to win an AC 10,000 ticket, SG 1,000 ticket or 10 AC scratch tickets. Whoever ends up with those will certainly be happy as they laugh their way to the in-game shop.
To top things off, players also have the opportunity to come across increased rare drop rates and increased rare enemy spawns. The event boost for these two rates is 100% as well. If you want to cut out some grind time or just get ahead in the game, you’ll definitely want to pursue these perks.
The future of Phantasy Star Online 2 looks bright with plenty of additional content and support on the way. We’ve been really digging the crossover content lately such as the Persona cosmetics and Valve content. If you’re looking for a new JMMORPG to get into, now is an ideal time during this Phantasy Star Online 2 event.
