Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris Update, Roadmap Released
The latest version 1.20 free update has been released for Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. In addition to a number of bug fixes, the update adds the first part of the Ancient Apostles story content, with the first part focusing on the character Sinon. It also increases the level cap from 50 to 70, increases the weapon level cap from 5 to 10, and increases the damage cap from from 999,999 to 99,999,999.
Bandai Namco also revealed the current roadmap for updates to the game. The next updates will add more Ancient Apostles content as well as further level cap increases, followed by the launch of the game’s first major DLC, which is titled Blooming of Forget-me-not. Those who have purchased the game’s Deluxe Edition and Premium Pass will have access to the DLC, though no other details have been released.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is loosely based on the main light novel and anime series’ “Alicization” story arc, which takes place in the Underworld, a virtual world where AIs act like humans. The game was released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in July 2020.
