Phantasy Star Online 2 won’t be region locked in the West

With Phantasy Star Online 2 starting to make its way to Western shores (after what feels like an eternity), some might be concerned by possible region locking. However, there’s no cause for concern when the game does release.

In a recent exchange on Twitter, the official Phantasy Star Online account confirmed that the game has no current plans to implement region locking.

There’s some good news for Phantasy Star Online 2 fans

A response left for a fan through Twitter reads, “Hi there! There are no plans to region lock Phantasy Star Online 2 at this moment. Thanks for reaching out!”

There is a slight possibility that this could change depending on how the upcoming online beta for the game goes. It’s already set for pre-load for Xbox One, and a Windows 10 PC option is said to becoming in the spring. The closed beta test will kick off on February 7.

This is just the latest question answered by the Phantasy Star team on Twitter over the past few weeks. It noted in prior messages that the game will be region-free, making it easier to install and play. Furthermore, for those interested in customizing their game, English and Japanese voice options are on hand, complete with subtitles.

Again, final options probably won’t be set until the game releases sometime this spring for Windows PC when it finally releases. Based on what the team has in mind, however, they’re very optimistic about accessibility. The more players in the world of Phantasy Star Online, the merrier, it seems.

The official Phantasy Star Online 2 website should have more details as soon as they become available. In the meantime, follow the links above to register for the closed beta test, and prepare to jump in later this week.
