PSO2: New Genesis update increases level cap, adds concert, and more
Sega has delivered a big update for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.
Starting things off is a level cap increase to 40 for all classes. To accompany this, Rank 2 versions of the three Aelio Urgent Quests and Aelio Devastators mission have been introduced, as well as a Rank 3 version of the Mt. Magnus combat sector. Players need a Battle Power of 1898 or more for the Urgent Quests and 1957 or more for Aelio Devastators.
Also added were the ARKS ID and Music Mag features. The former lets players create a profile using stamps and titles they have collected, while the latter allows players to change the background music using their mag.
Additionally, players can now complete a new Side Story and catch a concert in Retem City. The concert happens at random intervals and grants all players who attend a buff that increases the amount of Meseta and experience earned in addition to a rare drop rate increase.

Next week, Sega plans to add a new Urgent Quest against Dark Falz, a new series of 5-star weapons and armors, and a Rank 3 version of Vanford Laboratory Ruins.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is available now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
