Phantasy Star Universe is the first single-player Phantasy Star game to arrive in more than a decade. The Phantasy Star franchise started as a series of turn-based RPGs (Phantasy Star™ I-IV, 1988-1994), evolved into an online multiplayer action-adventure (Phantasy Star™ Online Episode I-IV, 2000-2005), and now hits its stride as the best of both, a single player action-RPG with a multiplayer online component.
This robust action-RPG offers more than 40 hours of single-player gameplay, an
emotionally engaging story, traditional cut scenes, and strong character development. The title’s hero is Ethan Waber, a 17-year old cadet intent on saving his sister, who is living on a planet under siege by mysterious life forms called THE SEED. The combo driven action gameplay in Phantasy Star Universe provides for a fast-paced, engaging experience, while the game’s rich character customization options and enormous world are sure to satisfy RPG fans seeking depth.
The fee-based online mode in Phantasy Star Universe continues where the offline mode’s story leaves off. Players are given the opportunity to travel with a squad of other adventurers, enter urban sprawls teeming with hundreds of players, and build their avatars into powerful warriors.
