Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a batch of screenshots and information about the upcoming RPG/third-person-shooter hybrid game Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet.
The screenshots feature the online multiplayer component of the game, which includes an eight-player competitive mode, and a cooperative mode for up to four players.
The Online Battle mode divides up to eight players into Alpha and Bravo teams, and they have to compete to deal the most damage to a boss character roaming the map. Players need to strike a balance between attacking the boss and preventing the other team from scoring points by doing the same.
The Online Cooperative Battle mode sees up to four players and their AI companions ArFA-sys team up to kill the boss. Balancing skills and different roles is important to achieve the objective.
