Sega recently held a press event where it showed off a new trailer for Phantasy Star Online 2 and gave a little more information about the game. The latest successor to Phantasy Star Online will still use the same three classes from the original (Hunter, Ranger, and Force), but promises to significantly revise the gameplay of the series. Hunters have gained additional mobility and powerful combo attacks, and Rangers now fight with Third-Person Shooter mechanics. In addition, up to twelve pleople will be able to play together, organized in groups of up to four characters.
Phantasy Star Online 2 has just begun its Alpha testing phase, and still doesn't have a release date, so it may be a while before it comes out. Unlike previous Phantasy Star Online games it will be released on the PC, with no announced plans for a console version.
