At first, Phantasy Star Online 2 will be composed of the game's first three episodes, which is three years worth of content! All quality of life updates made to the Japanese version over the years will be included from the get go. Players logging in for the first time will be rewarded with a plethora of freebies, such as gunblades, rifles, rods and other items. The open beta, as well as the full game, includes English text and voice acting.
