When is it due for uk?
Converse with fellow players
An EU release date is not yet confirmed at all... meanin we aren't even at a "When" but on a whether "Will it or will not".
That said, nothing's stopping EU players from playing the NA version and supposing an EU version releases it would most likely have you playing on the same servers as NA (just able to get the game and buy AC without changing console region).
I suppose it depends on if Microsoft can convince Sega to do a UK release too or at least to let them add EU servers with full monetization support for the EU regions.
and by servers I assume "Ships" right? @Mattwo7
Having another version of PSO2 NA but "for EU players" is not only ideal but would be an extra expense when they could just do like older titles (and other games) do and have the NA version be a "global" version which EU players can play on.
Ahh yes, each "Ship" is a shard with each block as an instance (hosting blocks is where MS Azure's load balancing is applied to).
A 'bare minimum' EU release would be something akin to PSOBB, that one didn't even have servers hosted in EU and it was 'officially' known as "PSOBB US". Only reason people say that one was released in Europe is cause:
So a PSO2 EU release could literally just be Sega making the game downloadable by players from outside of NA...
The game was age rated across several European countries and Australia at the start of the year so I would say we have at least some chance of what we currently have becoming a global server.
For now if you want to play just change your location on your Xbox to the US to download the client, Paying for things is abit of a pain in the arse though had to use a US address here and get Microsoft gift card codes to pay.
There’s work around for Xbox and pc I imagine you can just download it regardless of region so it probably would be easier to play on the NA server . There is not even a estimated timeframe for a EU server so it may not release or release at a much later time frame
I imagine like in JPN one of the ships will become heavily influenced with EU players
