Freedom Wars

As promised earlier this week, more details have emerged about Freedom Wars‘ plot line by way of Weekly Famitsu, particularly with respect to the previously teased “Divine Punishment,” as well as a new character.

Divine Punishment, as it turns out, is the name of an advanced city-state that exists far above in the skies. As was shown in the trailer, it sends down Abductors of its own to attack the Panopticons down on the surface in the wake of their growing influence. These Abductors are, in actuality, the original building blocks behind the artificial ones that populate the game, and are said to be overwhelmingly powerful.

Famitsu also introduces a new character. Currently known only by her last name Anastasi (hooray, magazine leak censors!), she’s the older sister of Beatrice “Lily” Anastasi and is a commander in Divine Punishment’s anti-ground forces.

Beyond that, four new weapon types have also been introduced, although only one of them, the lance, is known as of this writing. (Again, magazine leak censors.)

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    So.. This game is pretty much a mixture of attack on titan and battle angel alita then?

  • TheExile285

    Lance confirmed! Yesssss! :D

  • orzorzorz

    kind of wish that this was a plot point they’d reveal in the game

  • 武神水樹

    Looking forward to seeing how this sells in Japan

  • RSene

    What is city-state? It’s a capital of a city?

    • Auragar

      Kind of…

    • Caden Reigns

      the best example of a city-state would be something like the Vatican, an area within another territory that has it’s own laws and such. In this game since there don’t appear to be any countries, just roaming cities that are at least partially hostile towards one another, both the land and sky cities would refer to themselves as city-states

      • RSene

        Wow! That helped a lot. Thanks!

        • Caden Reigns

          glad I could

      • RSene

        So, it’s right to describe it as an autonomous city, or an independent city, right?

        • Caden Reigns


  • Kurisu Makise

    The plot thickens…

    New weapons? I bet the Fist type is there. Lance isn’t new tho unless they meant different from the old 11 minute Freedom Wars Youtube Tutorial Video.

    I’d love the ff:

    -Handguns for MC
    -Sub Machine Guns
    -Grenade Launchers
    -Energy based Tonfa/Nunchucks
    -Shield Hybrid

    What we’ve seen so far:

    -Short Blade / Stilletos / Chainsaw Short Blade
    -Long Blade / Katana
    -Spear / Lance

    -Revolver (on Accessories)

    -Assault Rifle
    -RPG / Missile Launcher
    -Minigun / Gattling Gun
    -Sniper Rifle
