Phantasy Star Online 2, the popular online action-RPG, will not be locked to any specific regions when it launches later this year on Xbox One, according to the North American PSO2 Twitter account.
A fan asked whether the upcoming online-ARPG will be region-locked. The NA PSO2 Twitter account responded that there are currently “no plans” to seclude players to any regions and that region-locking is not on the table for PSO2 “at this moment.” Things could change later on down the road, however.
Hi there! There are no plans to region lock Phantasy Star Online 2 at this moment. Thanks for reaching out! 😊
