SEGA has narrowed down a date for Phantasy Star Universe expansion Ambition of the Illuminus.

The Live downloadable version will be out on 20th November and cost 1600 Points (GBP 13.60 / EUR 18.61), followed by retail PS2 and PC versions on 11th January for GBP 19.99 / EUR 29.99.

Ambition of the Illuminus has a new storyline to work through, new areas to explore and bigger monsters to kill and boast about.

There is also a new lobby area that is much bigger and has casino machines to gamble and win things on, as well as more customisation options like more weapons to hurt things with, more things to wear to stop you getting hurt, something called Photon Arts to do something with, and more clothes to dress up in.

Whether this will make up for the shortcomings we identified in our Phantasy Star Universe review is another thing, but we imagine that if you're still playing PSU then you're comfortable enough to look beyond them.
