Bandai Namco has announced the release date for the first expansion DLC for Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The expansion titled “Ambush of the Imposters” will introduce new playable characters to the game as well as a new story. It is set to release on April 26 in Japan.
In addition to the expansion pass, game update 1.2.0 will release a day earlier on April 25. This update introduces a new four-versus-four multiplayer online mode called “Deathmatch.” This mode is similar to the original PvP online multiplayer except it does not have a boss.
