The big addition: online co-op play.

Freedom Wars

Famitsu this week has details on the first major update for PS Vita’s Freedom Wars, including internet co-op play.

A release frame is still unannounced, but with the magazine providing a full outlook, we can’t imagine it’s too far off.

Find the details below.

  • Internet co-op play – In addition to the currently available ad-hoc multiplayer, wi-fi mode has been added. Wi-fi mode includes support for both text and voice chat.
  • Multiplayer invasion missions added – Face off against other Panopticons. If you win, you reduce the opposing Panopticon’s ranking/worth (GDPP).
  • Players no longer need to complete a mission in Story Mode once before being able to do it with a friend in co-op.
  • Personal leaderboards added in addition to existing ones in place for City-State War Node. Those with high ranks can earn special items.

Thanks, Games Talk.

    Lol wow namco seems like the team for FW didn’t need to take months to get online working huh *Kappa*

      Well, Dimps do the programming, not Shift, plus being a first party title of course it gets full support from SCEJ internal devs.

    “Players no longer need to complete a mission in Story Mode once before being able to do it with a friend in co-op.”

    Ew, I hate when that is a requirement. xD Glad they’re changing it!

  • Mika Moreno

    I assume all of this will be included in the western release. Which is hopefully soon!

    This came quicker than the God Eater 2 online patch

      Though to be fair, this should have been incorporated from the beginning for both games. It’s obvious they had it planned even before release, so I wouldn’t have minded waiting an additional month or so for them to release the game with this feature from the get-go.

    Does anyone here have this title and how do you like it so far?

    I am looking forward to it’s NA release and hopefully we get said updates as well.

      Story doesn’t sound too compelling, the characters being overly stereotyped like in a (somewhat bad) random school life anime. But the gameplay is just as fun as it was in the demo, that’s to say a lot. However I’m not really far in yet, and lots of people seem to be complaining about post-half game stuff. But I can’t comment on that.

    • Dede Ogbe

      Its pretty good up until Code 6 onwards. Then it’s got some balance issues, which can get annoying mainly because the game’s camera doesn’t allow you to see the human enemies properly. So if someone with a flame thrower comes up behind you, your screwed because of the stun lock, and you can only really watch your character burn to death. There’s also the issue that some of the A.I are too intelligent, for example they snipe you the moment you respawn. However these issues will probably be fixed in time for the western release. Your A.I for the most part is helpful but again, once you get to harder levels, they become liabilities mainly because they can get kidnapped themselves if you don’t revive them in the time limit. Which is annoying if you both got killed and you respawn at the other end of the map whilst they’re in the hands of the Abductors. The story isn’t great tbh, but the gameplay more than makes up for that and it still has a better story line than other games in the genre, not better than GE2 though.

    “Face off against other Panopticons. If you win, you reduce the opposing Panopticon’s ranking/worth (GDPP).”

    Why was I not taught this in Macro/Micro Economics?….

    • NeoTechni

      You know nothing about economics till you watch c money of soul and possibility control

  • Natsu Dragneel

    Glad this update will be on the NA game at launch. If I knew it didn’t have online yet nor were you able to play through the game co-op without having beating it. I’d have lost all interest in the game.

    This is great, hope this will be available at launch for NA.
