PSO2: New Genesis Enters Its Second Era!


Creative Space

Construct whatever the mind can conceive and believe on your very own private island! The "Build Parts" you'll be using can be resized and recolored to create the ultimate showpiece. Even the terrain can be modified to your specifications. Parts can be linked together to perform certain functions, such as a pressure pad that opens a door, using the "Connect System." Blueprints of your creations can also be shared with other players.

Earn a new "Genesis Points" currency by completing certain tasks, or by harvesting a GP Tree in the Creative Space, to buy build parts. These points may also be exchanged for some combat items, such as capsules. Recreations of furnishings from PSO2 can be purchased with Star Gems.

Starless Enemies

The Starless, mysterious adversaries from outer space, have descended upon Halpha. They boast exceptional strength and are capable of buffing themselves and nearby hostiles.

Level 70+ enemies in the Aelio region can drop the new ★9 "Tesua" weapon series. Their potential differs between weapon categories.

Hunt Lv. 79+ Gigantix and Recon Gigants for a chance of obtaining Giga Stragments. Exchange them for weapon camos, capsules, and more.

Class Level 75

Combat the Starless in new Aelio battle sector ranks with Lv. 70 foes and strive to hit the new level cap.

Aelio sectors have been updated to include Sky Lifters, a new device that launches players across the map for faster traversal. Hindras Lilies can be discovered in the Resol Forest that release a shockwave upon receiving enough damage.

Featured item drops will display on the world map and quest acceptance menu.

The level of Gigantix in the Aelio region has been raised to 79. Recon Gigants can appear in the region now, and Starless may appear among their ranks.

New "Mynin" devices can be found in the field that reward Photon Chunk IIA & B upon destruction.

New ranks are coming to Urgent Quests as well, alongside enemy level changes.

The following Urgent Quests have been discontinued and will only be available as Trigger Quests:

  • Subdue the Overseer-Type DOLL!
  • Nex Vera Subjugation
  • Mining Rig Defense: Aelio

  1. Might want to add these:
    -Changed the specifications so that EXP earned by players from enemies of a higher level than the player will not be attenuated.
    -Removed the Damage Adj. for damage taken by the player when attacked by an enemy of a higher level than the player.

    These are pretty big. Or better yet just post the link to the patch notes.
