The last and possibly most wanted of the three Sony Computer Entertainment Vita games announced for localization today is Freedom Wars. A highly stylized monster hunting and co-op game also coming from Japan Studios, Freedom Wars has been on many individuals’ radars since its original “Panopticon” Japanese tease last year. You can check out the English announcement trailer below and the cinematic trailer at the bottom of this post:
Freedom Wars is set in a dystopian world which harbors prisoners, each with a million-year sentence set from birth. You take on the role of a prisoner, forced to fight for your freedom by completing rescue missions that will reduce your seemingly insurmountable prison sentence.
Supported by a robust multiplayer suite, up to four players can play via Ad-Hoc and eight players via Online to fight civilian Abducters; the more civilians you set free, the shorter your sentence becomes. In addition to the challenging co-op gameplay, you’ll be pleased to know that the game has many customizable features ranging from weapon load-outs to the protagonist itself! Check out our new trailer and make sure to stay tuned for more news on Freedom Wars, launching later this year! – Dais Kawaguchi
