Phantasy Star Universe expands

Ambition of the Illuminus to add more areas, enemies, classes to Sega's multiplatform online role-playing game this fall.


Phantasy Star Universe

The universe is about to get illuminated, as Sega today announced the Ambition of Illuminus expansion for its PC, PlayStation 2, and Xbox 360 online action role-playing game Phantasy Star Universe.

The expansion will continue the original game's single-player story mode and add the ability to play through them with a customized character (the original game's single-player story followed a premade character named Ethan Waber). The add-on will also include new enemies, bosses, levels, and character class types.

Ambition of Illuminus will be available this fall. Owners of the original Phantasy Star Universe on the Xbox 360 will be able to download the expansion, while PS2 and PC gamers can purchase a stand-alone edition of the expansion in stores. No price has been announced yet for the various versions of the game. Online subscriptions to the game cost $9.99 a month, although PS2 users have the option of subscribing to a six-month term for $49.99.
