Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis has launched its Winter Event, which comes complete with snowfall and trees with snow-laden branches. There's a lot to enjoy like seasonal enemies and even a new weapon. The event runs until February 8.

One of the things players can do during this event is the Daily Tasks and Weekly Tasks, which reward players with certain items. To start, simply head over to Retem City and talk to Xiandy. Finishing tasks earn players points that can then be exchanged for goodies at the Exchange Shop. The rewards include:

  • First Half (Starts January 12)
    • Exchange points for:
      • Mag Form/Winter Minimo
      • STP: Rappy - Snowfriends
      • Tiger Cape
  • Second Half (Starts January 26)
    • Exchange points for:
      • Tiger Head-Mount
      • Rope Ribbon

There will be Star Gems and even Special Scratch Tickets available. So don't forget to stock up on those Seasonal Points.

Seasonal Enemies

For the duration of the Winter Event, players can find seasonal enemies in most Sectors within the Aelio and Retem Regions. It's easy to recognize them since they have seasonal symbols over their heads. As a tip, seasonal enemies during this event are going to be weak against the Wind element.

Expect to see enemies and bosses having seasonal symbols during the two Urgent Quests in Retem Region which are Dustyl Vera Suppression Op and Renus Vera Suppression Op. Remember that season points can be earned by defeating these enemies.

New Weapon

The Winter Event introduces the 5-star weapon known as the Wind element Tempesta series. Each weapon of the Tempesta series has a 5-star rarity and is powerful against enemies weak to Wind. Be sure to make the most of this weapon during the event. This weapon can be obtained with seasonal points.

The Winter Event is part of the January Update which you can read more about here.

Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis is set a thousand years after the events of Phantasy Star Online 2. It takes place on Halpha, a planet where ARKS and DOLLS battle for dominance. The game is available on PC and Xbox One.
