Phantasy Star Online 2 launches on Steam on August 5th

Phantasy Star Online 2 has been available in North America for several months, but only for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. All that changes on August 5th when Phantasy Star Online 2 releases to Steam for PC. Along with the date announcement came a slew of special rewards which allow you to wear costumes and decorations from Half-Life, Team Fortress and Portal. This isn’t the first time SEGA and Valve joined forces, as fans might remember when Renegade Ops and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed crossed paths with Valve franchises.

Read more about the Steam rewards at the PSO2 website, and in the meantime mark your calendars for August 5th!

Gordon Freeman joins Renegade Ops on the PC version

So Renegade Ops has been out on console for awhile, while the PC version isn’t going to come out until October 14th. Don’t worry, PC users will be able to drive as Gordon Freeman’s Buggy. Is this exclusive to PC? That has not been established yet.

“Working with Steam and the Half-Life team makes this game extra special. Gordon Freeman is a deeply-established character in the gaming world and we are proud to have him included in Renegade Ops.” – John Clark, director of PC Digital

If you play as the Freeman, you will be able to unleash Antlions as his special power. So if you use Steam, there’s a big chance you’re a Half Life fan and if you aren’t, you should be.
