"Phantasy Star Online 2" Closed Beta Screenshots

It's time to dust off your Mags and get back to grinding

If this were any other article, I'd write a long, rambling essay about how utterly, hopelessly obsessed I was with Phantasy Star Online, and how the impending release of Phantasy Star Online 2 is like a doomsday clock for me, counting down the hours until I barricade myself in my room and shun all human contact for weeks and weeks.

 

These beautiful screenshots from the game's closed beta shed some light on what the game will actually be like, showing off the character creator, several classes, some battles, and some truly gorgeous areas to explore.

I have one reaction for all of this.

It really is. Or, y'know, maybe I'm just (a little too) excited to see a franchise I thought was dead come back to life in such a spectacular fashion. What do you think? Will Phantasy Star Online 2 live up to fans' high expectations when it hits Windows and the PS Vita sometime later this year? Or will it get buried under the might of World of Warcraft, like so many MMORPGs that have come before?
