Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis shares its universe with PSO2, which should keep both fanbases pleased. The visuals are a lot more striking, which means the game’s huge battles, varied worlds, and other assets will look a whole lot better than the base version of PSO2. New Genesis is practically a new game when you really think about it.
