It seems that Sega’s continued support of Phantasy Star Online 2 will not take a break for the holidays as the title is set to receive a Christmas themed update later this month.

According to the Phantasy Star Online Blog, Sega will deck the halls with a Christmas event for the online-rpg which will begin on December 15th, 2013, and end on January 15th, 2014. The update will also come with new “scratch items”, which might just be the perfect gift for Phantasy Star fans.

Additionally a new multi-party emergency quest will also also be introduced on December 18th. The mission will have a heavy focus on defensive strategy as players will be tasked with defending three towers from an invasion of Darkers, who will attack in increasingly large waves based on the progression of the quest. Furthermore the mission also comes packing new enemies and Photon Arts.

Happy Holidays Phantasy Star Online 2.
