Romier S Posted April 8, 2005 Report Share Posted April 8, 2005 Phantasy Star Universe is being developed for both the Playstation 2 and Windows PC. Both versions are due in February of 2006. No word on an Xbox or Gamecube version unfortunately. For fans of Phantasy Star that could not find themselves interested in Phantasy Star Online, PSU looks like the answer to your woes! The game returns to the series roots with an estimated 40 hour, story driven adventure. The game will follows a 17 year-old military cadet named Ethan Waber, a man that's determined to rescue his kidnapped sister from a mysterious life force known as THE SEED. PSU will also support an online multiplayer mode that is akin to a full on MMORPG! Take a read: In the online portion of the game, players will be able to create a completely separate character from scratch and choose their appearance from a healthy selection of unusual alien races. Hundreds of human-controlled characters will populate the screen at once, and three entirely different planets from the Grarl solar system can be explored. Additional features include 15 gigantic bosses, a massive overworld with more than 20 different dungeons, and a squad-based team-up option for users who don't want to go adventuring alone. There are even player-controlled vehicles that eliminate the need to travel by foot and a plan to include additional downloadable content for several years. The full report can be read here .
