Freedom Wars game update version 1.20 is now available in Japan, adding “Player vs. Player,” “Ideology Wars,” and more to the PS Vita action RPG.
In Player vs. Player mode, up to eight players can battle against each other via Wi-Fi play. With Accessories (the game’s android assistants) participating, a total of 16 characters can participate in the battle.
The game offers both “Enemy Elimination” and “Citizen Rescue” modes, the former of which tasks players with killing each other, while the latter with rescuing citizens.
Players are awarded GDPP for their respective Panopticon in Player vs. Player mode, and players can team up with members of the same Panopticon to get a better lead on competing factions. Players earn CTP as they play, as well, with the amounts varying depending on whether they won or lost and their ultimate ranking in the fight. CTP is also used to provide a separate meta-ranking that can be used to tell at a glance how competent a player is.
A Player vs. Player Practice Mode using AI enemies has also been added.
In Ideology War mode, rather than fight head to head with others, players cast votes based on their principles in response to limited-time prompts by donating Amnesty Points. After the rankings are tallied up, players are then bestowed with items based on the ranking that their choice ultimately nets.
Special Extermination Volunteering has also been added. This is a mode where players can face off against major Abductors individually and practice their skills against them. Any resources that are accrued in this mode can be carried over into normal gameplay and used for the usual weapon upgrades and various other services.
