Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization (ソードアート・オンライン -ホロウ・リアリゼーション-, Sōdo Āto Onrain -Horou Riarizēshon-?) is an Action Role-Playing Game (ARPG)[4] published by Bandai Namco Games for the PlayStation Vita (PS Vita), PlayStation 4 (PS4), and personal computers (PCs) as the fourth game adaption on console for the series. Unlike the previous games, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, and Sword Art Online: Lost Song, Hollow Realization is set in a game-original Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online (VRMMO) game, called Sword Art: Origin, which is based on the servers for the original Sword Art Online[5].

Game Structure[edit | edit source]

In the land known as Ainground, Kirito meets Premiere, a mysterious Non-Player Character (NPC) who has not been coded into the game. Kirito and friends vow to protect Premiere while uncovering the truth about her null coding. However, they must also contend with so-called Blue Cursor players now hunting NPCs whom cannot respawn after death, similar to the victims of Aincrad.

The main campaign follows the events of Lost Song[6]. The conclusion of the main story leads to a free Downloadable Content (DLC) story, named Warriors of the Sky (蒼空の闘士, Sōkū no Tōshi?), in a brand new area called Stalvatos Ruins, located in the incomplete Aincrad. After the free update, the story is further developed with a paid DLC questline, named Maiden of the abyss (深淵の巫女, Shin'en no Miko?) in Japan and Abyss of the Shrine Maiden in the West, that features a three chapter-long redemption arc for Tia.

The first of the three DLCs, the Explorer of Illusory Mists (幻霧の探求者, Genmu no Tankyūsha?), is focused on uncovering the mystery behind a Masked NPC just one Floor below the Stalvatos Ruins, in the Vulcanus Citadel.

The second chapter, the Tuner of Causality (因果の調律者, Inga no Chōritsusha?), takes place on an even lower floor in the incomplete Aincrad, in the Northazrod Tundra, and is focused on working alongside Tia and earning her trust.

The third DLC, The One Who Resists God (神に抗いし者, Kami ni Aragaishi Mono?), brings a conclusion Tia's arc with everyone working together on another floor of Aincrad, Elionward Dominion, to destroy the cause of Tia and Premiere's issues.
