Headline is particularly similar to a news broadcast as it delivers PSO2: NGS updates in real time.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis (PSO2: NGS) is an adventurous video game that invites gamers to enjoy strategic battles. Since it is a massively multiplayer online game, you can enjoy its content with players across the world.
PSO2: NGS’s developer, Sega, regularly updates the game through server maintenance. They also add new content to the game to keep it entertaining and exciting. Sega usually announces new content through Headline, which is a live stream.
What is a live stream?
Streaming is the method of data transmission by which someone watches videos on the internet. It is a way to deliver a file a little bit at a time. By transmitting a few seconds of the file at a time over the internet, client devices do not have to download the entire video.
Live streaming, on the other hand, is when the streamed video is sent over the internet in real time, without first being recorded and stored.
Moreover, although Headline is pre-recorded, it is still considered as a livestream, as players can comment on the video as it plays in real time.
PSO2 NGS: Headline
Headline is a live stream that occurs on PSO2: NGS’s official YouTube page. It is quite similar to a news broadcast as it features NGS official navigator, Hiro Arai, as its presenter. Arai generally appears to be in a newsroom with a large screen behind him.
Arai shares NGS’ latest updates in the form of a news broadcast. After announcing the feature, the live stream usually shares what players can expect from a specific activity or task in the game.
He also asks the audience several questions like how they are enjoying certain activities in PSO2: NGS.
Since it is a livestream, viewers can respond to the questions in the comment section. It is noteworthy that the stream is presented in another language, however, it is directly translated to English as the stream progresses.
Once the livestream concludes, PSO2: NGS will review all the comments and statements from players. If there are many comments about a specific topic, the team will review the concern and address it in a future update.
The objective of Headline is to update PSO2: NGS players worldwide about current operations, future updates, interesting campaigns, and other related topics.
It is vital to keep in mind that Headlines do not occur every day, but only when a lot of new content is added to PSO2: NGS. That being said, Sega usually announces when the following Headline will occur on the official PSO2: NGS website.
