PS Vita action RPG out tomorrow in Japan.

Freedom Wars

With Freedom Wars just hours away from release in Japan, 4Gamer.net has gone up with 12 minutes of gameplay footage from the upcoming PS Vita game.

The action game is set in the not-too-distant future, where atmospheric pollution has devastated the earth and resources have become scarce. Harsh communities known as Panopticons have been formed in order survive, and battle to secure the earth’s little available resources. Players are born into a prison sentence, and must rescue civilians in possession of valuable rival Panopticon knowledge in order to reduce their sentence and earn freedom.

Watch the footage below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

    looks great, i always did liked MGS PW.
    Gameplay looks similar :D

    • neocatzon

      Oh, a rare comparison. Why did you think it’s similar to PW? Most compare this to monster hunting kind of games.

      • Orichalon Hades

        doesn’t it though? it’s more “shooty” than most hunting games. it give the feels of PW to me, especially on the boss segment of PW.

        • neocatzon

          Ah, I see. The boss fight. It’s refreshing to see automatic firearms in a hunting game. Too bad this one doesn’t have base building or (woohoo) fulton system.

          • Orichalon Hades

            we can look forward to MGS V: PP for that :D

            Well, you can use your rescued civilians to work in Plants. Sure there’s no 3D render of the said Plant but it’s probably somewhat closer to PW than the usual handheld mp-action game.

            • neocatzon

              First time hearing this! Any link that I should read?

                Players can acquire new items by making various facilities. There are also special facilities called “Plants” used by the Criminals, which come in four different types. From there, different weapons and items are created.

                Not only will the Plants produce items, but later on they will also have features that allow for enhancements and for adding “modulars”. The citizens you save can be selected as a chief for the Plants.

    to anybody who wants to import this game:
    it comes with Online Code and can only be used with JP PSN

    also: the wifi function will be added as a patch later this summer, that means you can only play multiplayer via Bluetooth at the moment

    and there is still an online code lol well done $ony

    Real piss this isn’t coming to consoles. I don’t see myself buying a vita anytime soon.

    • Somerandomperson

      Get a Vitatv/pstv
      It’s mini console, remember?

      • new_tradition

        Getting a PS TV over a Vita has become more and more attractive to me.

        It’s just…I read people saying not all games support PS TV, and even the controller won’t work with all games. That keeps me wary :/

      • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

        The thing is 100 bucks could be put towards others games coming to consoles I actually have.

    • V-Angelus
