No more changing settings on consoles. No more buying US cards for the premium in-game purchases. Phantasy Star Online 2 will finally be available in Australia itself, for PC via Steam, on August 5.
One of the most popular free-to-play MMOs, Phantasy Star Online 2 has been notorious for being so selective about the regions it has been available in. It was previously released on Xbox One as a special “exclusive” deal, but only formally in North America, meaning everyone else needed to work around it.
In theory, the entirety of Phantasy Star Online 2 can be played without spending a cent, though of course people love to play dress-ups with their avatars and get neat bits and pieces so most people that get hooked into the game do end up spending a little. The Steam version will also have a number of rewards for players, which are overviewed in the trailer.
August 5 folks. Just a week away. In addition to Australia, the game will be available in 35 other regions on Steam. You can check the Steam page to see if you’re one of them.
