Blades of Ascension is a MMORPG for PC developed by individuals, inspired by Sword Art Online. We develop this game in our free time so do not expect fast game updates or fast servers.  Blades of Ascension Online is supposed to be a VRMMORPG… We aren’t there yet. Virtual reality is still a dream to come, with the Oculus Rift being developed right now, VR might become reality within the next 10 years.


If you want to help our project, please head over to We are looking for SAO enthusiasts and fans alike. If you are into arts (2D/3D), storywriting (Quest Design), or you know a foreign language (Japanese,French,German, etc.) or you just want to stick around and get updates, we want to know about you!

4 comments by JDB_Artist on Nov 4th, 2013

We would like to announce the first of what we hope to be a regular event, “Unwind with the Developers”. While we are still a long way away from having a playable game environment to show off, we’d like to take the opportunity on some weekends to field some Q & A with our fans in a live environment. To that end, we’ll be running a steam where some of our developers will be unwinding with a little bit of online gaming while answering some of your questions about the development process. To start with, it will just be us playing rounds of various games with just the developers, but hopefully we will be able to expand it to us actually playing matches in games with or against some of you.

The basic procedure will be that one of the developers will stream to our account ( and you can join us there to watch us play while we answer any questions that you might have for us. One of the staff will be on hand to filter through the questions and comments and direct them at us, and we’ll do our best to answer them provided we can do so. If we can make this a regular thing, we’ll try to mix it up a bit as to who is playing on a given session so that we can field all sorts of questions on the various departments.

Due to illness, we will be pushing the stream back one week to November 16th.

As a result our first event is tentatively scheduled to be on Saturday, November 16th at approximately 2PM EST (Approximately 7 PM GMT)
. Joining us will be SeijiTataki, Community Manager and Game Designer, and Jake, our head programmer and project lead.

Ok so I am really new at this and a friend introduced me to Sword art online and I LOVED IT and i searched everywhere to find a game like it and this is where I ended up. But I'm a little confused is BOA a actual game or is it still in the making?

BOA is currently being developed for the PC, Mac & Linux platforms. We do not have a planned release date but we are aiming for a 2015 release if possible. BOA no longer is an SAO MMORPG but it is greatly inspired by it so you can expect to see some similar features, we have loads of updates coming soon and we are going to start accepting to alpha testers soon so be sure to head on over to our site at:
