This is where all gathered info goes. As new info comes in, I will edit this first post.
Info will be mostly from PSOW but also from our personal playtime with the beta.

OK So what's new?
-There's an autorun feature which I guess comes in handy.
You simply press left on the d-pad (or the "R" key on the keyboard) and boom you start to autorun. Pressing up or down on the d-pad triggers a follow command. If theres a party member nearby, you can follow them. Press up or down again to follow another person if any. It will highlight their name. You can cancel it out by pressing the autorun button again or when you do some other action like strafing.
Here is a video of it in action.

-Looking for party icons.
New party options which can be seen here.
You can set your status to "looking for party", "not looking for party", "soloing", etc. An icon will show up indicating your status.

-New weapon types
IPB Image Photon whip - video by Ether
IPB Image Slicer - Slicer video. Normal attacks followed by the PA. Thanks to Epyon.
IPB Image Shadoogs - Gun type. They randomly shoot stuff as they come into range. They have an element attached to them.
IPB Image Madoogs - Tech type. Think of it as another wand in your left hand. You can assign techs to it. And they have PP.

Madoog

Madoog vs Wand: Casting speed comparison
Madoog vs Wand: Consecutive casts

-New SUVs
Sword SUV: Gigas Espanda
We are currently trying to get that SUV in the casino. I'll update as soon as we get it.

-2 New Classes: Acrofighter & Acrotecher
Acrofighter:
S-ranks - twin sabers, saber, dagger, claw, slicer, handgun, shadoog
A-ranks - twin handgun, card
Level 40 Skills, Level 30 bullets

Acrotecher:
S-rank - Twin dagger, saber, dagger, whip, handgun, card, madoog
A-rank - twin handgun, wand
Level 20 skills, level 30 bullets, level 30 attack techs, Level 50 support techs.

Upon further research, Acro-classes get a speed boost on their respective weapons. Namely, Twin Daggers for Acrotecher & Twin Sabers for Acrofighter. OK, so what does it mean? Imagine having a god/battle or Har/Quick unit and thats what you get. But in this case, you're not wearing any units and you get this speed boost by default. Not sure what other weapons are affected.
Acrofighters & Acrotechers: Attack speed

-Class changes
IPB Image
Hunters/Rangers gets Shadoogs
Forces get Madoogs.

Figunner:
A-rank Slicer and Shadoog
Level 40 skills, level 30 bullets

Guntecher:
A-rank whips and Madoogs and S-rank Long bows
Level 10 skills, level 40 bullets, level 20 attack techs, level 30 support techs

Wartecher:
A-rank whips and Madoogs, and S-rank wands
level 30 skills, level 20 bullets, level 30 attack techs, level 20 support techs

Fortefighter:
Level 40 Skills, level 20 bullets.

Fortegunner:
A-rank Shadoog
Level 20 Skills, level 40 bullets.

Fortecher:
Level 10 Skills, level 30 bullets, level 40 attack techs, level 40 support techs.

Protranser:
S-rank of all previously usable weapons
Level 40 skills, level 40 bullets

-Revamped room remodeling
IPB Image
Check out a youtube video on it here.
"There are new reform tickets available from the store. After using one of these, you get an episode 2 style room. These don't have the little boxes on the ground, and you can turn what is called the "room grid" on and off through your PM. When the room grid is on, you may add and remove my room items. Most items are 2x2 blocks on the grid, and theres even grid on the walls, shelves, and even on some of the room items you put in (you can put more items onto a table or shelf you buy)."
*donkey's note: After you set an item down, you can rotate them in 4 directions and have them face whereever you want.
Oh yeah, some of the room items are now interactive. You can sit on chairs you buy and turn on stuff like fans!

Fan room item video. Pretty funny.

-Revamped grinding system
"The grind rate was lowered significantly, but the weapon is no longer destroyed when you fail a grind. This doesn't necessarily increase the number of highly grinded weapons because of the lower rate."

Other tidbits
-You know how when you move from planet to planet, it triggers the cutscene where you fly off to a particular planet? Doesn't happen anymore. At least not on the beta.
-You can now warp directly to a field base instead of going through the first mission, etc., etc. I read that it requires a small fee but, its totally free in the beta.
-You can view your class level above your head now.
-Additional graphical touches like facial expressions and (semi) real-time shadows are present in the game.
Shadows:
IPB Image

Expressions:
IPB Image

-Trap prices are lowered.
-Character customization has been revamped a bit. New hairstyles and headgear are available. Choosing a head accessory is now done in a separate window. Though it does not mean that you can put any accessory on any hairstyle. I thought you could but that's not the case.
-Of course there's new clothes.

Additional info pulled from Itsuki's FAQ from PSOW.

I will add more as it comes.

Looks like a lot of current and former importers are jumping on board with this.

That "pink exclamation point" just denotes that they're playing solo.

Ok peeps! Some "stofez" to wet your lips.





My first Shadoog.
IPB Image
Left hand weapon, it has no PP. Fires independatly and applies SE at a somewhat impressive proc rate. Not Sure of SE level. I obtained it from an enemy drop on B rank. I soon obtained a craplod more of them as I progressed through the stage. They where dropping faster then a crackheads dignity.


Chaos sorcer type doods.
IPB Image
There seem to be two types. Ice rod dood and Earth rod dood. Ice rod dood as one would expect, cast ice spells. Ironically, earth rod dood cast Zonde elemental spells. Either Sega messed up his spell palette or gave the rod the wrong elemental color. I would also like to note. Rangers now have a B rank profficiency in G. Launchers. I guess that means we now have B rank Launchers. I'm guessing Koltova Kannon is B-Rank.

Staff dropped by the Ice/Earth rod doodz.

Grass Assassins!

These guys seem a lot huger when your up against them!
IPB Image





BEACH!

PSU? MORE LIKE EPISODE2 AMIRITE OR WUT??? OLOL
IPB Image





I was doing some inventory stuff at my PM when I just happened to catch a meteor shower outside. Wasn't fast enough to catch it however the view outside the window looks better from what I remembered it to be on PSU v1.
IPB Image




Casino... How do I love thee? Let me count the ways... 1...2...2...2...starsss.....*eyes glaze over*
IPB Image





Hitting up the slot Machines.
I managed to recoup my losses and made a little bit extra then from when I started. Lots of fun. Ended up with 1 silver and some copper change.
IPB Image



With our pockets fattened we went and bought Dj_Donkey a whole new outfit!
IPB Image



Working on some videos, and I'll be sure to upload some more screens later! Enjoy!!!
