PSO2 New Genesis Introduction Recap

PSO2 New Genesis Main Points

  • Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis is an action online RPG.
  • The game takes place 1000 years after PSO2.
  • The graphic engine has been overhauled.
  • It features expansive open fields and exhilarating battles
  • You have a high degree of freedom in creating your character.
  • The game will launch sometime in 2021!

 

New Genesis : Races

  • There are four races in New Genesis: humans, newmans, casts, and deumans.

 

The Lobby

  • Unlike previous games in the Phantasy Star series, New Genesis allows you to travel seamlessly across different sections.
  • When you login, you'll start in the lobby where you can meet up with many players.

 

Adventure Area

  • You can leave the lobby by just running out into the adventure area.
  • You'll match with up to 8 players in a section.
  • You could start off in a forest and then continue running into another section and seamlessly match up with different players.

 

Day and Night Cycle

  • Time will flow between day and night.
  • Weather will also occur.

 

Traveling

  • Dash lets you move quickly across the field.
  • Glide lets you descend from high to low areas.

 

Healing Items

  • Items for healing will not be available at shops.
  • Instead, healing items called "Resta Signs" will be scattered across the field.
  • You can heal in the heat of battle without having to stop what you're doing like in PSO2.

 

New Genesis Classes

  • PSO2 NGS revealed three classes so far: Hunter, Ranger, and Force.
  • In New Genesis, up to 5 continuous normal attacks can be performed.
  • The first four have normal stats, but the 5th strike would be as powerful as a PA.
  • There are no perfect attacks (Just attacks) in New Genesis.

 

New Genesis : Hunters

  • You can guard attacks with the Sword just like in PSO2.
  • If you press the normal attack button after a successful guard, you'll perform the 5th strike right away.

 

New Genesis : Rangers

  • The ranger class excels at long distant combat.
  • Assault Rifle damage changes based on the distance you are from the enemy.
  • You need to maintain the optimal distance to deal the most damage.
  • Assault Rifles have access to the sliding shot weapon action.
    • This allows you to change your distance while attacking the enemy.

 

 

New Genesis : Forces

  • Forces attack in a bit of a floaty style.
  • They specialize in long-range elemental attacks called Technics.
  • Just like PSO2, there are charged and uncharged Technic attacks.
    • Uncharged Foie shoots fireballs.
    • Charged Foie causes a direct explosion.
  • Rod normal attacks will shoot bolts at the enemy so you can attack at a distance.
  • Rods can now guard against attacks which produces this hexagonal visual effect.

 

Adventure Areas

  • The adventure area has multiple sections that are seamlessly spread out.
  • There are two types of sections: exploration and battle.
    • Exploration sections lets you gather materials and ingredients.
    • Battle sections are where you mainly engage with enemies.
  • In the exploration section, you can jump and pick fruit from the trees.

 

Adventure Area : Gathering

  • You can also gather materials from tame animals.
  • If you don't defeat them they could even run away
  • You can use these materials for cooking which provide temporary boosts.

 

Adventure Area : Combat

  • Within combat sections, there's yellow markers that indicate the enemy spawns.
  • The Dolls are the main enemies in New Genesis, but there are other enemy types.
  • Trials (known as Interrupt Events in PSO2) will occur randomly in the field.
    • Trials will display as a T marker on the field.

 

Adventure Area : Combat

  • There's also another enemy type called Alters.
  • Alters appear to somewhat resemble the "native" enemy types from PSO2.
  • The "Lizard" enemies can cause status effects.

 

Adventure Area : Combat

  • There are different species of Dolls with various designs.
  • The one showed here, Gororon, blocks your attacks from the front.
    • Use ice technics on it to trigger a special "downed" state.
    • When they go into this state, it'll trigger an elemental damage reaction.
    • This will place ice shards over the enemy's body.
    • Eventually you can destroy its shield to reveal a new weakpoint.

 

Adventure Area : Combat

  • Another enemy called Dots can snipe at players far away.
  • You have to get on their back to attack their weak point.

 

Adventure Area : Combat

  • Elemental Damage reactions exist for each enemy.
  • Some enemies can go into a rage state.
