The official website for Sega's Phantasy Star Online 2 role-playing game began streaming a short version of an introductory video on Thursday.
An open beta test began on the same day in Japan. The 129-second video highlights what Sega describes as the "four revolutions" in game design: the "ultimate" character creation system, the "advanced" player communication system, "limitless" battlefields, and "red-hot" battle action.
Sega aims to formally launch Phantasy Star Online 2 for Windows in early summer, followed by an iOS and Android smartphone version in winter, and finally the PS Vita version next spring. The game will be free-to-play across all platforms. The developer had delayed the game's formal service launch until this year to make improvements.
