Ho ho ho, Christmas-Themed Content Is Coming To Phantasy Star Online 2


Phantasy Star Online 2’s next update is titled “Where Darkness Gathers”. Sega released a new promo video showing the contents of the update off, and you can take a look at it below:



The entire “Where Darkness Gathers” update will be delivered in smaller individual updates. December 12th will see the release of a boss called Dark Falz, who you will fight in an emergency quest. That’s him below:



Dark Falz is huge, supposedly planet-like. You’ll start out by fighting his arms and then move on to his body.


Christmas-themed content will also be part of the update. A Christmas lobby with a giant Christmas tree will be part of the festivities as well. Additionally, Rappies will be changed into Saint Rappies, and you may find that they drop a special item. Finally, the Naura sisters will set up a cake shop where they sell treats and will also make an appearance in an emergency quest.



Christmas content will be in effect from December 5th – December 26th.
