Sega have announced that Phantasy Star Universe's DLC expansion is free from now on. That's right, you could pay Sega in peanuts for all they care. The expansion is titled "GUARDIANS Advance Content". The previous expansion "Ambitions of the Illuminious (AOTI)" was also quietly cut down to the low low price of free as well.
Some notes on Sega on the recent expansion:
* In order to play online, players will now be REQUIRED to have the AOTI Expansion.
* The AOTI Expansion is now FREE for all to download over Xbox Live!
* To receive the new GUARDIANS Advanced Content update (and play online), players will need to DELETE and RE-DOWNLOAD the AOTI expansion.
* To do this, take the following steps:
1. Following the completion of the GUARDIANS Advanced Content server maintenance (notice will be posted on this website), delete your copy of the AOTI expansion. If you already have done this, or never have had the expansion, skip ahead to step 2.
2. Download the Ambition of the Illuminus Expansion from the "Game Marketplace" area of your Xbox Live dashboard.
3. Allow the update to download & install, and enjoy the new content!
Now get a long, Space Cowboy.
