Phantasy Star Online 2 launches in Europe early 2013

Free-to-Play multiplayer action RPG heads West.

Phantasy Star Online 2 launches in the US and Europe in early 2013, Sega has announced.

The free-to-play multiplayer action RPG is in development for the PC and PS Vita, but this latest announcement, issued to PSO-World, mentions the PC version only.

Sega America digital boss Chris Olson said: "Phantasy Star Online was a revolutionary game when it was released, and we want to make sure that its successor in the series is every bit as ambitious.

"We look forward to introducing Phantasy Star Online 2's unique, easy-to-access multiplayer action to the rest of the world next year!"

Producer Satoshi Sakai, of Sega Japan, added: "The number one thing we want to provide players in Phantasy Star Online 2 is an adventure that changes every time they log in.

"Just as great table-top RPG experiences revolve around imaginative and unexpected encounters, we want players to consistently be surprised as they explore dungeons and undertake quests
