The first chapter in the  Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization DLC is coming on May 16th to Europe. This story line is called Abyss of the Shrine Maiden and will consist three chapters in total. You might remember them listing these as part of the season pass for the game.  Here is a ton of new details straight from the press release:

The Kirito adventures are not over yet…BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe announces the First Chapter of ABYSS of the SHRINE MAIDEN storyline – a set of 3 DLCs that will thrill you like never before.

The first DLC will put you in the shoes of Kirito and his friends exploring a new stage in Aincrad Castle – where flaming earth, magma and heat waves dominate the atmosphere. While trying to clear this incredible new stage players will also be faced with the challenge of trying to defeat Bane – the crimson demon. Keep your eyes peeled as a mysterious masked person makes his appearance. Will it be an ally or a new enemy?

Along with the main scenario comes the following:
Heroine Quest – where you will have the chance to add Asuna, Lisbeth, Silica and Premiere as heroines in the first chapter.
Enigma Order Quest – where you can acquire the precious Fuse Paragon, Mystic and Ultana GP.
Items and skills- for becoming powerful as never before.
Customization – change the appearance of the main characters.
All of the above will be part of the CHAPTER 1 DLC that will be available starting from 16th May, 2017.

And if the new mysterious adventure isn’t enough for you, be prepare for the second and third chapter where the scenario will be reversed and Ice will dominate the scene, unlock two new characters: Alice & Eugeo, and a co-sleeping event that will involve them both. Stay tuned and be prepare for more adventures and fun with the ABYSS of the SHRINE MAIDEN DLCs.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
