Phantasy Star Online 2 is a pretty great MMO but one of the things holding it back is its dated graphics and awful user interface. Menus are a mess to navigate, and the game frequently looks like something out of the Playstation 2-era, which is why Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is so intriguing. It looks like a complete overhaul of the game, with much-improved graphics and a new user interface to boot. But it’s not exactly clear exactly what New Genesis is.

Debuted at the Xbox Games Showcase, New Genesis showed a lot of hectic melee combat as characters fought a variety of monsters in a lush forest planet. But the changes from the current version of PSO2 are stark, with the environments looking much bigger, more detailed, and the general look of the game feeling much more modern.
