Unlike previous crossover events where items were tied to gacha tickets, the Nier: Automata items are split into three packs with a set cost.
For $34.99, you can get item packs themed around 2B, A2, and 9S, though each one also has a few unrelated items. For example, the 9S pack contain an Emil “hairstyle”, while A2’s comes with a female version of 9S’ outfit.
It may seem like a hefty price for some cosmetic items (because it is), but it ends up being cheaper than trying to get everything through gacha. That $34.99 nets you a complete set of items, without worrying about RNG. It does mean that prices for these in player shops will probably be very high, as people wont be offloading their unwanted items gained through gacha.
The NieR: Automata Collaboration Packs will be available in Phantasy Star Online 2 from October 14 at 7AM BST, until November 11 at 6AM BST.
