According to PSO2 Team North America's head of marketing, Fred White, "There will be login bonuses waiting for [PC players] with more surprises planned in the coming months."

PSO2 is also supposedly making its way to Steam, though any official information--such as a release date--has not been provided yet. Knowledge about an apparent Steam port was pulled from the game's manual, which reveals instructions on how to launch the online JRPG on various platforms. Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed that the game is not exclusive to the Xbox platform.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is now available to download and play on Xbox One. While the game is free on Xbox One, there is a $60 Founder's Pack that features exclusive skins, a few in-game boosters, and more. It does require an active Xbox Live Gold membership to play.
