PSO2 JP: Maintenance (05/22/2019)

English Patch Temp Fix

Update: Gameguard seems to have rollbacked their update. You should be able to play as before.

Gameguard has received an update resulting in the PSO2 Tweaker Plugins for the Text Translations and the Proxy to crash PSO2 before start up. You’ll need to disable these plugins on the Tweaker until a fix is found.

A work around to still play the game in English is by downloading the patch and applying it manually. If you required the proxy to play the game, you’ll need to use a VPN.

 

Premium PSO2 Day Extension

The Premium PSO2 Day has been extended ANOTHER day due to the Extended Maintenance.

  • May 22nd 0:00 ~ May 23rd 23:59 (JST) → May 22nd 0:00 ~ May 24th 23: 59 (JST)
