Sega announced the Phantasy Star Universe expansion pack, Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of Illuminus, is scheduled to come out this fall in North America. The expansion disc has new weapons, armor, Photon Arts and Casino Voloyal where players can earn special items by playing slots or roulette.
Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus continues the exciting single player action-RPG storyline as a new Human Fundamentalist group, known as the Illuminus, disrupts the peaceful Gurhal System throwing the Gurhal Government into chaos. Using their custom-made Guardian, players investigate a series of single-player missions where they will meet familiar characters like Ethan Waber from Episode 1, and other new characters including GUARDIAN instructor, Laia Martinez.
Sega is going to sell discs of Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of Illuminus for the PS2 and PC. However, if you have the Xbox 360 version you have to download the expansion pack through Xbox Live. No price for the PSU: Ambition of Illuminus has been announced, but since the Xbox 360 expansion pack is only a download Sega might release it a cheaper price. You can see some additional screens of Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of Illuminus past the break.
