After a period of scheduled maintenance set to begin at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 1 PM BST on May 27, PSO2 will be officially available for Windows 10 PC users. Xbox One players who decide to opt for the PC version can retain their progress simply by using the same Microsoft Live ID to login to the game.

This PC port of PSO2 also comes with an assortment of goodies for new and returning players alike, such as a new look for the shopping plaza, tons of commemorative login rewards like consumables and weapons, special EXP and Rare Drop boosts, and more.

Additionally, the Windows 10 PC launch kicks off PSO2’s first seasonal event in North America. The Wedding Event, which runs until June 23, introduces some limited-time Client Order tasks and a brand-new Urgent Quest called Gone with the Wind and the Rain.
