Bandai Namco has launched a trailer revealing the newest story content for their action RPG Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris, available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam.
Titled The Bruised King, players can play through this third free story update. The lore of the “blue curse” is what destroyed the village around Windslice Ridge. Kirito hears a rumor from a merchant about an epidemic called “bluethorn sickness.” He was told that if a person contracted it, their skin would turn blue and they would soon die.
The content also introduces a new raid boss, the Illfang the Kobold Lord. One more story DLC is planned.
Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris begins with Kirito entering a mysterious new world known as the Underworld. In this place, NPCs behave more like humans. As Kirito, players will be able to experience the scenes from the anime arc where Kirito encounters Eugeo, Alice, Administrator, and other characters.
The game will be an accurate retelling of the anime series. During the game, Kirito will find himself in the “Underworld”, a mysterious virtual world that is established during the Alicization arc from the anime. The game will feature memorable battles and an expansive world to explore as Kirito fights through this new adventure.
