Maximum Attack hits Phantasy Star Universe on April 25th!

If you were left wondering what happened to Maximum Attack in the Phantasy Star Online series, wonder no more.

Maximum Attack G has been announced for Phantasy Star Universe, and it's going to be a doozy! This year, starting April 25th, the GUARDIANS will be traveling to a mysterious virtual world called Rykros in order to defeat over 100 million enemies and unlock the secrets held within this ancient artifact.

For those of you unfamiliar with Maximum Attack, the basic premise is to go to the GUARDIAN guild and simply request your party be placed into the Maximum Attack mission bracket. Upon entering, you'll be facing weak monsters that will give you double the experience... it's just you'll be facing a basic recreation of Dead Rising in PSU.

Each monster you kill will be counted, and the event is over when the player community kills 100 million monsters. Prizes go to the players who kill the most, and server wide unlocks are available as different milestones are reached.

This year's catch, however, is quite shocking. The virtual world of Rykros is a recreation of Ragol from Phantasy Star Online, so you'll be braving a updated version of the Forest, Caves, and Mine stages all over again. According to rumor, you might be bumping into some of the heroes of Ragol...

The only downside is that you need to have the Ambition of the Illuminus expansion pack, otherwise you're going to be watching from the sidelines. This is a great way to get some quick experience, so be sure to jump in and participate!

Keep watching Massively for more coverage on this event! We'll be in the trenches with you 360 owners, climbing over the mountain of Boomas!
