1 Year Anniversary Event
Web Bingo Event
Available: June 12th through July 10th
The 1 Year Anniversary, part of the “Phantasy Star Thanks Festa 2013” online event, shall introduce a new feature called “ARKS Bingo!” Each player’s bingo points are tallied up and used to unlock prizes to be distributed after the end of the event.
Available: June 12th ~
ARKS Bingo plays exactly how it sounds, but instead of calling out numbers, each square is cleared once the player achieves a specific objective. For example, one square may say “Grind a Weapon or Unit” and another may ask you to “destroy a blue container” or “feed an item to your mag.”
Players can receive rewards by clearing a line of squares horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. This will contribute to your “Bingo Point” score that is tallied with the rest of players to unlock prizes during the 1 year anniversary event.
Limited-time Quest: Border Breaking Chaos
Available: June 12th through August 7th, 2013

Dark Falz Powers Up!
Available: Mid June
Dark Falz is back with a vengeance in two new beefed up versions of his Emergency Quests. Unlike his other EQs, these do not show up at random, and are announced ahead of time by the development team.
This time, since Dark Falz has higher HP, the ship will have to defeat even more Arms in order to advance to the next stage.

Both Falz Arms’ fingertips and his main form will drop new items in both regular and buffed up versions of this quest.
