Phantasy Star Online 2 ARKS EXPO 2022

Sega has announced that the Phantasy Star Online 2 ARKS EXPO will return. The ARKS EXPO 2022 event will be held on July 17, 2022 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center in Japan. This is the first time the event has been held at a physical location in the past three years. The ARKS EXPO 2022 event will feature Phantasy Star Online 2 10th anniversary exhibits. Additionally, several contests will be held. These include a design contest, fan art contest, and cosplay contest. Admission to the event is free. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

More information about ARKS EXPO 2022 will appear through an NGS Headline broadcast. However, the website for the event reveals that there is no planned stage content due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19.

New content will appear in Phantasy Star Online 2 in June 2022. The April NGS Headline broadcast revealed that the Kvaris region will release sometime within that month. This region is covered in ice and snow. Players will receive a snowboard-like device to traverse the area. Additionally, players can expect to see the addition of new class skills.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is available on PCs worldwide, and on the Xbox One and Series X in North America and Europe. It is available for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan.
