Get the details below.

■ Story Overview

In the second half of the story, the player will be forced to make a serious decision–the player’s friends and their fight, or the player’s own crisis. Tensions will again run high in the virtual reality MMO “Gun Gale Online.”

—Is there a reason why Kirito and his friends are not present?

The heroines look back with a sorrowful expression. Whatever decisions you make, the player is the protagonist of this story.

Rain (voiced by Miyu Takagi)

She can wield two sub machine guns and overwhelm enemies with many shots.

A girl rescued by Kirito in the “Hollow Area” during the “Sword Art Online” period. She still calls herself a treasure hunter, and her current targets are super rare ArFA-sys.

She fights using covert actions and snipes enemies from a distance. However, she can also easily fight at close range with the sword techniques she mastered during the “Sword Art Online” era.

Weapon Modding: Customize a Weapon’s Special Effects with “Memory Chips”

Weapons may sometimes have “Memory Chips” with special effects attached to them. In Weapon Modding, you can strengthen and change the effects of a Memory Chip.

As you progress through the story, Lisbeth’s “Weapon Strengthening and Modding Level” will increase. By obtaining more powerful weapons, you will be able to clear various stages.

—Choose a base weapon and material weapon.

—By combining weapons, the Memory Chip effect of the base weapon will change. Memory Chips with the same effects will lead to a strengthened special effect.
