When a sudden attack led by Round Robin of the Four Lords plunges Central Cathedral into chaos, Kirito and his new ally, Rogu, stand to oppose these deadly foes. The 100-day countdown to humanity's destruction begins today! Following the events of the "Ancient Apostles" storylines and the Blooming Of Forget-Me-Not  DLC, Blooming of Matricaria delivers a new multi-chapter experience where Kirito and his friends must prepare to stand up to the Four Lords and prevent them from using the Divine Object of Mass Destruction.

In addition to Rogu, the charming new playable character, players will have access to the new "Shield and Axe" weapon type which excels in preventing attacks and overpowering the enemy with increased firepower.  Blooming of Matricaria also includes new maps, dungeons, and divine beasts to challenge in intense battles, as well as a moving story involving fan-favorite characters.

Also released today, a free update for Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris brings increased level caps for playable characters, weapons, enemies, and raid quests, along with five new Series Equipment to collect, the ability to update and reserve Play Avatars, and other miscellaneous enhancements.
