Phantasy Star Online 2 Will be Free-to-Play

If you feel uneasy about Phantasy Star Online 2, then maybe the game being free-to-play will relieve some of that. There's still no release for outside of Japan, so perhaps it isn't much of a comfort.

    Still, it's PSO. It'll be pretty import-friendly I expect. If it doesn't get a more worldwide release.

    Also, it's PSO.

    Enthusiasm... Fading...

    With it being F2P, that pretty much eliminates any chances of an offline mode. Not only that, but I can't help but wonder how Pay2Win it'll end up being....

    It'll have pay features like items/weapons and probably additional characters or costumes.

    Great news, I was worried about what sort of payment model they would use.

    Yay, that means I can finally play it online, too. I bought all the games but never played them online because of monthly fee.

    Phantasy Star V or nothing.

    Back in the days of PSOv2 I would've been excited about this announcement, but... nowadays, "Free to play" means "pay to win." Meh. I'd rather have a cheap monthly fee.

    Sadly I think that ship has sailed. I'd rather pine for Rieko Kodama's other series (7th Dragon) at this point.

    Don't stop believing!

    At this point I'd be happy with PSV the post-apocalyptic gritty reboot!

    I could get in a lot of trouble with a F2P PSO...
