Sword Art Online is a new free-to-play action MMORPG based on the popular Japanese novels and anime series with the same name. It is being developed by Aeria Games and Gamepot, a Japanese company acquired by Aeria earlier, and will be the “largest launch to date” with simultaneous release in both Japan and North America.
Sword Art Online is set in the same universe of the namesake anime, in which players will create their own anime fighters and embark on adventure with an attempt of reaching the game’s final floor in constantly updated content. The core concepts of RPG, action-packed combat and strong elements of Sandbox will be integral components. And signature anime characters like Kirito will be there to meet you and even aid you in battles.
