Phantasy Star Universe gets big update

Plus, Illuminus expansion now free.

SEGA has released a major new update for its online Xbox 360 role-player Phantasy Star Universe, and made the Ambition of the Illuminus expansion a free download.

The Guardians Advanced Content, an automatic update for subscribers, adds new missions, weapons and items, a new customisation system and an overhaul of the game's classes and skills.

The Guardians update requires the Ambition of the Illuminus expansion to work, so that add-on - which previously cost 800 Microsoft Points - is now free.

Phantasy Star Universe, the sequel to the much-loved Dreamcast game Phantasy Star Online, launched back in 2006. We didn't think it was that hot then. What do you reckon - is it worth a re-review in 2010? Is anyone out there still playing? Let us know in the comments.
