If you hate the Windows store and have been putting off playing Phantasy Star Online 2 because of it — and not necessarily because of the issues that have plagued the game since its release on PC — then here’s some good news. Earlier today, a trailer was shared on the IGN Twitter account (and reshared on the PSO2 account) teasing the release of the Episode 4 content taking place on Earth. This new content will arrive on both Xbox One and PC sometime in August.

While new content is good and all, that’s not the part of the video that has players excited. At the very end of the trailer, when all the text information stuff pops up, text reading, “get it from Microsoft and more PC platforms soon” flashed across the screen. Unfortunately, the video didn’t specify which PC platforms, and there are a few choices. But hey! There’s a pretty good chance Mike will get his wish and the game will become available on Steam.

She began writing about games for various hobby sites a little over ten years ago and has taken on various roles in the games community. For the past five years she's been a writer at Gamebreaker TV.


  1. My install worked for about a day, then the microsoft store broke the install, and that of the people i was playing with. PSO Tweaker helped me fix my install and avoids me having to load through the MS store. Kudos to the guys behind PSO Tweaker – it is a work of genius.

  2. I have not a problem with Microsoft store I can load the game instantly.
    I would prefer it to be a normal download install and go desktop launcher, but anything is better than the monopoly that steam held of which I may add, are the cause of the mayhem of launchers, but i am glad they are here as its a lot greater for the gamer ME>with more competition and pricing. 🙂
