With Phantasy Star Online 2‘s Episode 5 content launching tomorrow, Sega apparently decided that now is as good a time as any to start a new dev-stream titled “Arks Hour.” The stream, which took place just a bit earlier today lasted a little over an hour and showed some of the gameplay arriving with the new content — including a battle with a castle monster. The next episode is tentatively scheduled for the end of October.
The video wasn’t all gameplay, though. It offered some more community-based content like sharing notes from players to their in-game friends, and a lot of talk about chili peppers. There was even a giveaway. But, unlike giveaways in most dev streams, this one is for everyone and provides players with several in-game goodies including a weapon camo, a SG100 ticket, triboosts, keys, and more. To get all these goodies, you’ll need to go to the visiphone and enter the code 1X8F LADW X3PQ XG26. The items will then appear in your storage.
During the stream they also revealed the next AC Scratch collection, Legendary Heroes. If you’d rather read about this than watch the stream to find out about them, you can do that on the PSO2 site. If you do want to watch the dev stream, it is available on YouTube, and, of course, we embedded it below. The actual stream starts about 5 minutes in.
