PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (12/9/2015)'s host will be undergoing maintenance on Dec. 15th between 4:45 ~ 8:00 AM EST. The site will be offline during this time.

It's a December to remember! Meet Aurora in Episode 3's side story and participate in this year's Christmas event with this latest update for PSO2.

PSO2es Maintenance

December 9th Patch

  • Launcher: Version 03.00.04
  • Client: ver. 3.1001.2
  • Patch Size: 25 MB (PC) / 28 MB (Vita)


Google Authentication System

Alternative Login Method for OTP Users

PSO2 players should be well aware of the frequent issues that have been plaguing the One-Time Password service. Coming mid-December, PSO2 will implement Google Authenticator as an alternative way for OTP users to connect to the game. Just like before, once you've entered your SEGA ID and password, you must enter the code issued by Google Authenticator to log into the game. Once the service goes live, the One-Time Password Registration Guide will be updated using Google Authenticator as the default method.

OTP Campaign Participants

OTP Campaign participants who wish to switch over to Google Authenticator, can do so without losing their monthly streak. Players who cancel their OTP service have until 23:59 JST of the very same day to re-register their account with an OTP service. If they re-register their account after midnight passes in Japan, then their monthly streak will reset to being their 1st month.

Just to recap the OTP Campaign:

Monthly Streak Prizes
1st Month +50% Tribooster (x2)
2nd Month +50% Tribooster (x2)
Half Doll (x1)
3rd Month and Beyond +50% Tribooster (x2)
Half Doll (x1)
Extreme Pass (x2)
+250% Rare Drop Booster (x1)
Grind Risk Reduce (+2) (x1)
