How To Unlock Multiplayer In Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris
Want to play co-op online with friends in the new SAO game? This guide on How To Unlock Multiplayer In Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris will tell you exactly what you need to do before you are able to unlock multiplayer and either invite or join games to play alongside friends.

The multiplayer component for SAO Alicization Lycoris is one of the most appealing features for many players, getting to dive into the exciting world of Sword Art Online alongside friends and other players. While you may be eager to get going, exciting to fight alongside comrades, you’re in for a long wait before you can unlock the option to play online.

As a side note, multiplayer is much more open that we expected. Once you form a party, you can pretty much run around exploring, doing quests, fighting bosses, all together with your party. So while it’s a long wait, it’s worth the wait.

How To Unlock Co-op Multiplayer In Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris

Depending on your play style and whether or not you watch all of the cut-scenes and listen to all of the dialogue, multiplayer can be a long way. On my adventures through SAO Alicization Lycoris I completed all of the side quests, watched every cut-scene and enjoyed most of the dialogue, I unlocked the ability to use multiplayer after 17 hours, 40 minutes. This could quite easily increase or decrease by a few hours depending on your approach but still, it’s not something you can do immediately.

You cannot miss it, it’s not a hidden mechanic or unlock. Following the natural progression of the story, you will eventually receive a prompt on-screen that informs you that multiplayer has been unlocked. You’re then given a brief tutorial on how you can setup lobbies, how to join friends, select quests, everything you need to know to play multiplayer.

I don’t want to reveal any big spoilers here but it’s after you return from the Sothercrois Empire after defeating the evil seed. You’ll recognize it when you get there.
