Meanwhile, Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis is introducing a Mission Pass reward system on October 13. The first is called Mission Pass: NGS Season 1 and will run until November 10, allowing players to net various rewards by completing set tasks. Additionally, logging in between October 13 and November 2 will earn players an N-Mission Pass Gold.

Players can also participate in a new quest type from October 13 called Battledia. It sees them gathering five Battle Triggers from enemy drops before using them at a Trigger Portal. From there, they will need to complete a tricky quest that will yield EXP and materials for upgrading weapons and armor.

Finally, a Halloween Fiesta is set to take place from October 27 to November 24. Central City will be appropriately decorated for the duration of the event. Plus, there will be limited-time tasks and seasonal enemies to defeat to earn Halloween currency that can be exchanged for new Stamps and Mag Forms.
