Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization plans to offer a virtual reality MMO experience set within the universe of Sword Art Origins coming in the fall of 2016 to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Today, developer Bandai Namco announced new details regarding the gameplay of the anticipated title.
Players will be able to fully customize not only their characters, but also Kirito’s avatar. A number of customization factors, including name, gender, weapons and physical appearance make it easier for the player to place themselves in the same universe as franchise favorites like Asuna and Sinon.
Hollow Realizations will also feature a team system focused on strength in numbers. In an original online mode, groups of four players will find themselves paired up with a group of 4 AI characters who will assist in exploration and combat. Through the teamwork that this approach allows, players will have no trouble quickly covering ground and leveling up.
