The much anticipated Phantasy Star Online 2 has announced its closed beta testing. Xbox One owners in the US and Canada who signed up for the closed beta test will be able to test the game out on February 7, 2020.
The beta is planned to be available for only two days (February 7th and 8th). However, preloading will begin on February 3, 2020 to help players save time and experience the game immediately.
Phantasy Star Online 2’s beta begins on 8:00 P.M. EST on February 7, 2020. There will be four races and nine classes that players will be able to choose from. There will also be four major “Urgent Quests” that will be available throughout the event.
