If you’re anxious to get the ball rolling with the Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis Global Closed Beta (and you’re willing to deal with the Microsoft store), then we have a bit of good news for you. According to the PSO2-Global Twitter account, the client pre-download should be available around 9 PM Eastern / 6 PM Pacific today. Keep in mind this is an estimate, so it could be earlier…it could be later.
We estimate the #PSO2NGS Global Closed Beta Test client will be available in up to 7 hours. Please stay tuned for further updates!

If you haven’t already signed up, you’ll need to go ahead and do that. Just go to the PSO2:NGS site and apply. The beta event is slated for May 14 (this coming Friday). So you don’t have a lot of time left to sign up.
In addition to the client pre-download, don’t forget that the character creator will be available to download the benchmark test / character creator so you can spend all those hours creating the perfect character before the game launches in June.
