Phantasy Star Universe Expands

Come this fall, Phantasy Star Universe will be receiving its first full expansion pack in the form of Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus. When the Ambition of the Illuminus expansion launches, PSU players will be in for a much richer experience with tons of new content to explore as they work to restore peace in the Gurhal System, including expanded character customization features, new lobbies like the Casino Voloyal which offers gambling games like slots and roulette, and the usual expansion pack features like new weapons, classes, abilities, monsters, bosses and environments. Ambition of the Illuminus will also continue the single-player storyline of the original PSU with new solo missions that put the player’s created avatar in the starring role.

Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus will be available for download over Xbox Live on the Xbox 360 and via traditional retail for the PS2 and PC versions. Skim through these new screenshots for a first look at what’s to come in the expansion:
