So Mags in New Genesis

It won't be battle related as the article already stated. That means it won't provide PB or do the stuff it currently does.

Gotta think alternatively. What support functions could haing a MAG accomplish in a "open world" type game?

(This is just to get the brain juice flowing)

  • Inventory companion. (Provide additional space, auto loot stuff around the map, etc)
  • Portable class skill counter (perhaps allowing you to spend/manage skill trees without being at a world hub)
  • Something to do with fast traveling/mini games. (MAG transforms into something along the lines of riding quest vehicle, maybe some PVP racing mini games?)
  • Personal Client Order Manager (collect and turn in client orders from the field/on the fly)

Of course we don't know what yet, but it is fun to consider the possibilities.

I like these ideas.

I think it'll be similar to Borderlands 2+ where the mag ends up being some sort of menu system that we open up and do stuff like augment skills/etc. without being in a town/hub/etc. The menu system would hover next to your character like some sort of augmented reality/etc. Your character will also have a unique animation when accessing it, etc.

It might also let you "scan" an area like the ghosts from Destiny series.

I do hope PSO2 or NGS gets some sort of GvG feature in the future though. like defeating a small instance of mobs & boss for top speed/time. just an example since i've seen that done & PSO already has the tools to do that if Sega wanted to.

GvG? Guild vs Guild? I mean technically PSO2 already has that in the form of a ranking system for both individual players and alliances.

@KYBELA said in So Mags in New Genesis:

Grinding weapon levels. Freeemium Gacha. F2P trading. Timed Boss/Dungeon Missions for achieving Highest Guild Score

Imagine thinking THIS is what you should associate with PSO.

I distinctly saw what looked like a Photon Blast icon in the sub palette during the trailer, so I believe PBs are in the game.

@RedDingo7777

We think it's a placeholder icon for a class based skill.

(unless the devs are pulling a fast one on us, which I would be fine with)
