Phantasy Star Online 2’s Next Update Rewards You Even After The Level Cap


Sega’s next update for Phantasy Star Online 2 is titled “The Destroyer of History,” and they’ve announced what new content it will bring to the game. First, here’s a trailer for the new update, and you can find specific details below it:



A new area is being added to Phantasy Star Online 2 through the new update. These are ruins discovered on the planet Naberius, which was initially thought to be devoid of civilization. Your character will need to be level 25 or higher for the ruins.


New enemies will be added to the game as well. These include the Crabaada, Cycloneda, and the Kyuclonada. Take a look at them below:



There’s also a new boss character called the Zeshreida:



Also new is an item called the ExCube. Even if you hit the level cap in Phantasy Star Online 2, you can still gain experience. Once you’ve gained enough experience to level up, instead of gaining a level, you’ll get ExCubes. You can exchange ExCubes for in-game items. The screenshot below shows a 3x Rare Drop boost and other items being purchased for 10 ExCubes:



Finally, there’s a Photon Drop Exchange shop. Here, you can exchange 10 Photon Drops for a Photon Crystal. 10 Photon Crystals get you a Photon Sphere. Photon Spheres can then be exchanged for Mag devices and other items.
