Tokyo, August 19, 2020 – SEGA today announced their popular free-to-play online action RPG, Phantasy Star Online 2 (Global), has surpassed one million registered players following a successful launch on Xbox One and PC in North America earlier this year, then launching in 33 more nations and territories and on the Steam platform this month.
"The teams have worked so hard to bring PSO2 to players around the world this year and I couldn't be prouder of their efforts," announced Fred White, Head of Marketing at PSO Team Global. "Launching worldwide has been a dream come true for all of us. Surpassing a million registered players this month is a good feeling, and we've got so much more in store for the game in the future to look forward to!"
To celebrate the achievement, SEGA is hosting the "One Million ARKS Celebration" in the game. Activities begin today and run until Aug. 26th. For a limited time, EXP, Rare Drop, and Rare Enemy Spawn Rates will all be increased +100%! What's more, all players will have the opportunity to receive up to 2 Million EXP through EXP Tickets. And players who log in for more than five days during the event period will be entered into a drawing to win 10,000 AC, 1,000 SG, or 10 AC Scratch Tickets. There will be 100 randomly selected winners for each prize.
