Freedom Wars’ “Divine Punishment” detailed

Beatrice's older sister is a commander in its anti-ground forces.

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.)
