    At a recent Phantasy Star Portable 2 promotional event held in Akihabara, Sega revealed some details for its long-dormant next installment in the multiplayer RPG franchise: Phantasy Star Online 2. The revelation came in the form of a video (a very rough off-screen version of which is posted after the jump), which reveals a few elements like randomly-generated hunting areas, third-person shooter gameplay and -- an entirely new and completely thrilling addition to the franchise -- the ability to jump. We know! It's madness.

    You can check out a few screenshots of the upcoming action-RPG over on 4Gamer, or check out some translated blurbs from the event on Andriasang. Hopefully, we'll learn more about when we can expect the PC-exclusive title in the near future, as its alpha test is scheduled to begin sometime this summer.[/p]

    The MMO sequel to the best MMO of all time?
    No more Universe bullcrap?
    And we can finally jump?
    Take all my money.

    ... Actually no don't, I need a new computer first :3

    looks nice and kinda different from the rest BUT the question is... is it free (even partially) or does one only have to "get" the software/game

    And randomly-generated areas? I'm getting flashbacks of how fucking boring Caves was...

    But if they manage to not do that, I'm going to piss myself.

    Also... mags? *hopeful face*

    That looks really fun, I WANT TO PLAY!

    But my PC doesn't have enough power to run it, and I won't be getting a better one anytime soon... ;A;

    It doesn't look like a "cpu hungry" game, those graphics look quite dated for a MMORPG (I'd put it under Lineage 2 and above WoW in terms of graphics). Probably will run on anything that came out in the last 5 years.

    But I don't know what kind of pc you guys have.

    This game looks really good. I don't really game on my computer. But I'm willing to change that for this game.

    SEGA did say it will run on mid-range computers.

    As for me, 1GB RAM, single core CPU and ATI X300? Lolno. I actually do need a new computer.

    There is nothing wrong with crying tears of joy over PSO2.

    This will most likely replace WoW for me, no I'm not an uber fan of WoW it's not the be all and end all I just play it cause it's kinda fun to play with friends.

    Phantasy Star on the other hand [​IMG] [​IMG] I want it know please :3

    Phantasy Star Online's Gamecube release was my first mindless-grind-JRPG. I'll be looking forward to this.
