Here’s an overview of the second chapter, via Bandai Namco:

The second DLC will see Kirito and his friends pursuing a mysterious masked girl through a new frozen stage covered by ice and snow. They won’t be alone in this adventure thanks to the presence of a party of hunters that will help the crew in fighting monsters and bosses. But what’s going on with the mysterious girl?

With the main scenario comes the Heroine Quest. You will have the chance to practice with Kirito and Leafa to acquire a new attacker skill and help Philia unlock a mysterious treasure box.
