Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis launches today
Today, Sega released New Genesis, a new standalone expansion for the old sci-fi MMO that spruces up the visuals and lets players explore a new open world area.
I’ve only dabbled in a couple of Final Fantasies, and I often forget which game is which in the sprawling JRPG series. If you showed me a screenshot of Edge Of Eternity, and said it was Final Fantasy 12, I’d probably believe you.
It’s not, though. It’s a turn-based JRPG that just finished two years in Steam Early Access to launch in full today.

Dice today announced the next Battlefield game, Battlefield 2042. Watch the reveal trailer here!
Edge Of Eternity was originally Kickstarted way back in 2015, with a team of four people leading its development. It then launched in early access in 2018, unpolished but with modding support and a ten-hour runtime. Now it’s development has grown to 14 and its runtime has grown to a claimed 50+ hours.
Midgar Studio seemingly aren’t done with the game yet, however. They mention in their Edge Of Eternity launch post that they’ll announce their development roadmap “for the next months” tomorrow.
I’m not a huge JRPG person, but EoE does look to have some extremely pretty landscapes. Racing around those alien forests on the back of a big cat is appealing, even if I don’t have much patience for the anime melodrama in the trailer above. It also looks as if modding for the game never took off, and the few mods that do exist inevitably work to introduce Final Fantasy characters and weapons to the game.
The game’s price increased back in April, but at its current 20% launch discount Edge Of Eternity will cost you £20.22/€25.49 via Steam and GOG.
