Phantasy Star Online 2 revealed that it has crossed a new milestone with more than one million registered players. This follows a successful launch to both Xbox One and PC in North America earlier this year, along with the release to more regions through Steam this month.

In a press statement, PSO Team Global Head of Marketing Fred White said that everyone has been working hard in order to be able to bring Phantasy Star Online 2 to players around the world this year. He went on to say that “launching worldwide has been a dream come true” and that “surpassing a million registered players this month is a good feeling, and we’ve got so much more in store for the game in the future to look forward to.”

In celebration of this achievement, SEGA is hosting the One Million ARKS Celebration in Phantasy Star Online 2. Starting on August 19, and running through August 26, all Quests are going to give these Boosts:

  • EXP Earned +100%
  • Rare Drop Rate +100%
  • Rare Enemy Spawn Rate +100%

During this same period, operatives get EXP 100,000 Tickets (x2) each day for simply logging in to the game. Log in on at least five separate days and get rewarded with EXP 100,000 Tickets (x6).

That’s not all, as in the same celebration period, players who log-in for at least five days get to be part of a raffle that offers these prizes:

  • AC 10,000 Ticket (x1)
    • Number of Winners: 100
  • SG 1,000 (x1)
