Line Strike

Releases July 2024

In Line Strike, you will build a deck of cards based on PSO2 series characters and enjoy this simple but strategic mini-game against NPCs and other players.

During the summer of 2021, a contest was held within the development team for ideas of mini-games to expand the gameplay of NGS. Based on the proposal they selected, a task force team was formed with interested staff.

Development started behind the scenes without officially setting a release schedule. Since then, each member has managed to find time around the regular update tasks to proceed with its development bit by bit. Now after three years, it was finally near enough to completion that they decided to release it with the PSO2 anniversary event.

More info, such as the game's rules, will be revealed in future NGS Headlines.

Letter From The Developers

Balance Adjustments

They would like to conduct balance adjustments for the Fighter class in June and the Techter class in October. After that, they will make adjustments to Force, followed by Hunter.

They also plan to introduce a third implementation of Tech Arts Customization in October, and a fourth implementation afterwards.

The fourth implementation will have PA customizations for Talises and Wands.

They are relying on the usage status of classes and feedback to proceed with future adjustments and expansions.

ARKS Operation Report

Is it possible to add more [My Fashion] Slots?

They are planning to increase the number of premium set exclusive slots from the current 20 to 40 in a future update.

Players currently have the ability to save and load creation data, so this can be used as an alternative way to save more [My Fashions] if the number of slots is insufficient.


They are considering implementing a function that will allow players to create a multi-weapon using other weapons that have a particular special ability affixed as a material.

Can you make the Special Ability Categories Easier to Understand?

In order to make it easier to understand which special abilities can be used together, they are considering adding a category display in the Item Details of special ability capsules and in the Add Special Abilities function in the Item Lab.

There's not much of an incentive to play Emergency Quests because there's not a big difference in rewards between EQs and Standing Quests. Do you have plans to address this?

The development team is aware of this issue and intends to set the rewards for future Emergency Quests with an eye to differentiating them from Standing Quest rewards. They are also considering improving existing Emergency Quest rewards in a future update.

On the other hand, they also want to make sure that gameplay is not overly biased towards Emergency Quests.

  1. Like most things in pso2, they are probably going to sell out rare children's trading cards with AC, and allow them to be sold on the market, or give a harder way of getting those cards for free… Well, whatever happens, I want you guys to remember one thing.
    In another few hours the sun will rise!
