PSO2 JP: A More Challenging Progeny Releases June 22nd

~ June 22nd, 2016 ~


Revamped Progeny of the Apocalypse

This update will unleash a more challenging version of the Progeny of the Apocalypse EQ. While the quest structure will remain the same, there are a few key differences. For one, the A.R.K.S. Support System will be more difficult to raise. On Extra Hard, players will face even more powerful bosses with intensified attacks.


Clear the quest for a chance to receive the new ★13 “Ray” Weapon series! These will also be available in new collection sheets, requiring items like a Psycho Wand or Ely Sion to complete.


New Story Events

Bethor continues wreaking havoc in Tokyo in the absence of Hitsugi and the player's presence. Realizing that the devestation would continue unless they adhered to his silent demands, our heroes returned to Earth. They become embroiled in conflict with Bethor, serving as actors in his heartless film.

New characters arrive on the scene: four apostles of Mother Cluster!

  1. So apparently the job entry requirements for the Apostles are:
    A) nuttier than a fruitcake
    B) fashion disaster
    C) goofy name

    Also inb4 Miss Mysterious Hood is Koori or smth, that would be the most obvious cliché and the plot has thus far never failed to wholeheartedly embrace every single one of those… :v

    1. Well apparently according to Chapter 1, Hitsugi actually is a member of the Mother Cluster, but just didn't become one of them.

  2. I just realy hope this is just a side effect of the profound darkness being suppressed and that these morons here are devoured by it later. infact I just hope the this is all just an accident and most of it isent real because who do these guys thing they are?

    1. Welcome to the dumb anime tie-in. Where the previous 3 episodes don't mean a thing now.

      I will now end this post with a quote from PSO-WORLD when someone asked what was going on in the first cutscene at the start of Episode 4. This will give you an idea of how Episodes 1-3 don't matter now.

      "Sup you've been frozen for 2 years. Oh you lost your memories? No prob, just GET TO WORK!"

  3. So what's going to happen to the invade/austere weapon series if this revamped PD is going to be dropping a new 13* Ray series?

    1. If it still drops the Glowing Green Rocks(tm) for exchange exactly nothing, I'd guess? Not like you were supposed to rely on RNG to get them as random drops to begin with.
