Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet is the sixth game in the franchise based off the anime and the first game to be available on Xbox One. This particular entry follows a unique story from the creator, Reki Kawahara, set in the second season of the anime. “Gun Gale Online,” the virtual world in which this season takes place, is a notable change in scenery from the high fantasy worlds in which the past season was set. “Gun Gale” is a post-apocalyptic realm marked by a vast expanse of desert and the remains of infrastructure. According to BANDAI NAMCO, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will mix third-person shooter gameplay with RPG elements in which players choices affect the outcome of the story. Players will use a combination of guns and swords to battle robotic foes and use grappling hooks to zip from building to building.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on February 23.
