The newest DLC for Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris is now live. Blooming of Matricaria offers a new multi-chapter experience, with a story that follows the events of the “Ancient Apostles” storylines and the Blooming of Forget-Me-Not DLC. In this one, Kirito and his friends need to prepare to go against the Four Lords and stop them from using the Divine Object of Mass Destruction.

In addition to a new story, players also get to meet a playable character named Rogu. This boy has an eyepatch on his right eye and fights using a shield and a one-handed ax. This enables access to the “Shield and Axe” weapon type which is good not only in preventing attacks but also in overpowering enemies. This new weapon type though can only be equipped by Rogu and Kirito.

The Blooming of Matricaria DLC also comes with new maps, new dungeons, and even new divine beasts.
