by Rainier on May 7, 2005 @ 2:45 a.m. PDT

Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst introduces server-based storage of player data thereby freeing the players from being confined to playing from any single PC/location. New team system, enhanced character graphics, and better game controls are some of the other improvements introduced in the continuing evolution of PSO universe.

The story picks up seven years after Pioneer 1 touched down on planet Ragol. As Pioneer 2 arrives to continue the settlement on this new world, contact is suddenly lost following a massive explosion on the surface. Players take on the role of a hunter, commissioned by the Governor-General to resolve the mystery unfolding on Ragol.


  • New Quests! - Thirty three quests have been created from the offline portion of the PSO story. Visit the Governor-General and receive up to 15 quests, or get to the Laboratory to accept 18 quests that await you there.
  • Customize 12 characters - A new character named Momoka is introduced through one of the Governor-General's quests. Also, new morphing technology allows you to customize your character's face, hairstyle, clothing, and body size.
  • Play from any PC - Your character data is held on a server allowing you to play anytime from any PC that has Internet access and PSO Blue Burst installed.
  • Team Features - Join a team and chat with other members at any time via "Team Chat". The "Team Point Ranking System" allows you to compete and it converts undesired rare items into team points.
  • 3D Battle Action - Outstanding sense of realism where results of battles are determined by player's ability and the parameters of the player's character. Customize your command palette for simple, straightforward operations.
  • Different modes to keep you on your toes – Including ‘Battle Mode’, ‘Challenge Mode’ and ‘Go Go Ball Lobby’.
  • Items galore - Collect and draw off the magic of more than 1,000 items throughout your many quests.
