Will pso2 new genesis have a casino?

Casino is really one of those features that are super unique and the kind of thing I look for in mmorpg's (lame ik), would be kind of a shame if they didn't have one

I don’t think it does, at least not at launch. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s something they will add in later though, and you’ll still have the casino in base pso2 in the mean time

My only request if a new casino appears:

Please don't have an NPC screaming loudly on a loop every 1-2 minutes. It would be much easier to enjoy playing some cards if my eardrums were not in physical pain if I play with headphones.

If it does, I doubt it will for a while. The PSO2 casino's still gonna be there, and it's not really tied into game systems so they're probly gonna put effort into actual NGS system stuff (zones, UQs, classes, etc) than just a new casino reskin when there's still old casino games that'll work fine.

Would be neat to see them put new NGS costumes/rewards in the casino at least, though.

PSO2's casino didn't appear until Episode 3 in JP so it'd be expecting a bit much for one to be present right away in NGS.

I'd like to hope that they could spend some time thinking about how to keep the casino feeling fresh or at least more integrated into the gameplay loop. I don't know about you guys but nowadays the Oracle one feels very separate from the rest of the content and only a means to grind for coins to get weekly SG sometimes.

Depends what you mean by more integrated? I definitely don’t want to be in a position where I’m forced to play it.

Understandable... I know people don't even like the 500 coin tier mission when it crops up and besides a minority of the exchange rewards it's pretty much the only thing that ties in with any other part of PSO2. A task for its own sake can feel like a chore.

In my head I'm imagining more of a colosseum-style single-instance venue that can bring together various competitive functions like time trials, challenge runs, maybe a form of PVP that isn't mired by terrible net code (perhaps a PSO Episode III style card game?) and with casino-style games all collected into a unified location rather than having the multiple separate empty cal-de-sac hubs with 50 unused Rappy Slots machines in 50 blocks like we have now.

That does sound pretty decent, definitely better than watching Nyau pull an Ace, after hitting on 20, for countless times

Yeah... not so sure about how to fix that one haha. Maybe more variety in the game types, or bonus rounds, or even hosts. I guess ultimately everything would get old eventually but I don't think the casino being a large empty space that you don't need to go anywhere near for any other part of PSO2 has helped it any.

Can we get something like ridroid racing and/or make bets on npc racers? That'd be new and different. Don't think it'll happen though.

YES! That was the other reason I fantasised about a venue for competitive content. Halfa's main city is getting another stage with a big screen. There would be excellent opportunity to integrate spectating - which has passive entertainment and learning value - and in-game betting to add immersion into the mix as well.

Please no...

As long as the rideroid has better controls, and more maneuverability, I'd be down for that.
