Phantasy Star Online 2 Launches on Steam August 5th, Valve Collaboration Items Announced

Tuesday, July 28th, 2020

Phantasy Star Online 2’s PC exclusivity to the Microsoft Store is coming to an end, as the game will be launching on Steam as soon as next week, August 5th. It’s also been confirmed the game will support crossplay and cross-progress with other versions of the game, and that the Steam version will drop alongside the Episode 4 content update.

This also seemingly marks the official European release of the game, as the Steam page is available in select European territories. We don’t have a full list of who can and can’t access it right now, but we at least know that the UK is good to go, and the Netherlands are sadly out of luck as the page simply won’t load in that region.

The best part of this announcement however, is probably the new items announced to commemorate the launch. You’ll be able to get your hands on gear inspired by Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2 and Portal 2 as part of the game’s Steam launch. This isn’t wholly surprising, but it’s weird to see Gordon Freeman in PSO2 nonetheless.

PSO2’s PC launch was mired in technical issues, so hopefully the Steam launch will mark the end to that. Going off previous blogposts, it’s a safe assumption that Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, the upcoming overhaul of the game, will also land on Steam at some point next year – though whether it’ll have timed exclusivity to Microsoft again remains to be seen.

Anyone pre-ordering Football Manager 2012 on Steam will receive items such as football boots, scarves and a vuvuzela sound pack for use in Team Fortress 2. Check out the press release below:

LONDON (13th October, 2012) – Sports Interactive and SEGA Europe Ltd. announce that from today several Football Manager 2012 items will be available via the Team Fortress 2 store. These items, including football boots, scarves and a vuvuzela sound pack, will be given away free to anyone that pre-purchases Football Manager 2012 from Steam, but will also be in the store to anyone after the much anticipated release of Football Manager 2012

“When Steam and Valve came to us with this collaboration idea, it just underlined to us why we think they’re brilliant”, said Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Interactive. “Outside the box thinking that just works so well. We hope all the Team Fortress 2 players enjoy using the items inside the game, and apologise in advance for the general annoyance the Vuvuzela sound pack is going to inflict on the world.”

Jason Holtman, Valve’s director of business development, said “GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!”

Football Manager 2012 is developed by the London based award winning developer Sports Interactive for PC and Mac and is available on Steam from 21st October 2011.
