Timeline / Phantasy Star Online 2

Go To

Due to a number of time-travelling shenanigans, the interference of immortals, and Sega's tendency to add in new timelines and plot at a later time and place some cutscenes in earlier chapters...let's just say that the timeline is somewhat of a mess. The date is (Start) to (End), from the first cutscene of the Matterboard to the last, and there are some cutscenes, especially in the earlier chapters, located in the same time frame.


Note: After the Omnibus, the timeline had once again been screwed over, with certain scenes and episodes being brought forward to Episode 2 from Episode 3, and a few tweaks here and there. Thus, if you are looking for the 'official' timeline before the advent of the Omnibus, this is your page. If not, back to Alma you go!
