That being said, there is a lot to excited about in this brand new expansion to the main MMO, Phantasy Star Online 2. New Genesis will add six brand new playable classes and 12 new weapons to the game for starters.
The classes in New Gensis will as well have unique skills and special class weapons to help you win fights - photo arts and techniques are two examples of such skill systems being added with the new expansion.
Photo arts are special attacks that exist aalongsideweapons and Techniques are basically the game's magic system. Techniques will also have three elements: Fire, Ice, and Lightning
The next big thing is regarding the graphics engine, as it has been updated for both the main MMO and the new expansion Genesis. Because of this, you can expect a more visually bombastic experience for both titles.
The expansion will bring a ton of hairstyles and faces players can use in character customization as well and several features such as class systems and multi-class weapon systems.
Players can also transfer character data from the main into that of the main, thus making for an easy character creation start in the new expansion.
