For the first time in a SAO game, the main protagonist won’t be one of the famous anime characters but will be a created character with your own personal avatar. This new feature will have several customization options such as: gender, appearance and status (STR, VIT, INT, AGI, DEX and LUK) that will affect both the combat style and adventure. This new Character Creation mode will leave all the power in the players’ hands, letting you create a character more suitable to your style. Characters created will be both playable offline and online, co-op or single player mode.
Once the player has created their own avatar, you will be logged into GUN GALE ONLINE (GGO) to take part in an incredible adventure joined by Kureha and Zeliskam – the mysterious woman. You will also be helped by ArFA-Sys(Artificial Financial Adviser System). This new support AI addition will be extremely powerful and important to the player during the journey to GGO. This character will have different types, with Type-X being obtainable by the player. You will have the chance to customize various options to suit the player’s preference. Type-X will develop in game offering not only help in battles, but with assets and items.
In addition, main characters from the previous series – Asuna, Leafa, Silica and Lisbeth will join with new original costumes.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will be available Early 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
