Merry Christmas on Ice 2016

Test your holiday spirit against Toy Darkers and frosty Natives in the seasonal [Merry Christmas on Ice 2016] Emergency Quest! Once enough quest points have been collected, Dio Hunar may emerge with a specially prefixed name. Uniquely named bosses from limited Emergency Quests of the past can also appear during the quest.



Join some of your favorite NPCs in putting on your merriest Christmas costume to receive a bonus PSE effect during the quest.


The St. Rappies and Noiya Nyau will have new drops to look forward to, like Philodemos and Sky Shine.

  • Patch Size: 2.8 GB (PC) / xx (PS4) / 10GB (Vita)

Attention All Vita Players

The November 24th patch is expected to take up 10GBs of space due to the reconstruction of data from Ver. 1.01 through Ver 4.24. Players who’ve applied patches from previous updates may find themselves with insufficient space with the upcoming update. To workaround this issue, it is suggested to completely delete the entire PSO2 application, and reinstall the game from the PlayStation Store.
