Philia and Strea will be joining soon Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris according to a new trailer. Bandai Namco also provided new key art, details on the 1.5 game update, and announced a new DLC pack called “Mysotis.” [Thanks, Twinfinite!]
Both new companions are available for use in the content update 1.5 and will remain usable through future updates. Philia has appeared in others SAO games, included Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, Sword Art Online: Lost Song, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet as one of the main heroes. Strea was meanwhile a main character in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment and Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment. Both characters used different avatars across the games. The Alicization Lycoris versions use avatars from Hollow fragment.
A new series of history missions launched in Alicization Lycoris with the Ancient Apostles: The Reaper of the Woods supplement. The 1.3 update included another Ancient Apostles quest called The Knight of Contradictions. Each of the additions has a past Sword art online heroine. The series will continue with future updates.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A demo for the game allows players to experience the first chapter.
