Phantasy Star Online 2 will launch in North America and Europe in early 2013, SEGA has announced.

The free-to-play MMO will launch on PC over a decade after the original Dreamcast hit, and feature 'revolutionary' real-time combat and a flexible class-based levelling system.

Three races will feature initially, including humans, 'spiritually-powered' Newmen, and the artificial CAST, and SEGA promises that quests will be unique to each player thanks to the game's randomised dungeon maps.

"Phantasy Star Online was a revolutionary game when it was released, and we want to make sure that its successor in the series is every bit as ambitious," said Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. "We look forward to introducing Phantasy Star Online 2's unique, easy-to-access multiplayer action to the rest of the world next year!"

"The number one thing we want to provide players in Phantasy Star Online 2 is an adventure that changes every time they log in," added Satoshi Sakai, Phantasy Star Online 2 Producer at SEGA of Japan.

"Just as great table-top RPG experiences revolve around imaginative and unexpected encounters, we want players to consistently be surprised as they explore dungeons and undertake quests."

Phantasy Star Online 2 went live in Japan last week. A PlayStation Vita version is also expected to release during 2013.

Reports coming in of hackers managing to move ingame NPCs into unreachable locations, apparently to teach SEGA a lesson, something about they must have global servers and not region locked ones. Which is ironic, someone should maybe teach the hackers the lesson that SEGA have never learned anything and that they're just repeating an endless cycle of:

SEGA release a high profile MMO
Everyone flocks to it
Hackers dislike some aspect and ruin it for everyone else
Everyone leaves and waits for the next big thing from SEGA
SEGA release a high profile MMO

etc.

Think I'll break the cycle by avoiding the flocking part, which whilst being a no win situation for everyone, means I can flock to something else and whinge about that instead.

Call me a pessimist (or a long time player of SEGA's online offerings) but I'll give it two weeks before the in-game economy gets ruined by cheating.
