In the year 102013, Earth's surface is a mire of death and ruin with no means to support life. Humanity has retreated to underground cities called "Panopticons" and struggle with the balance of thriving as a species under oppressive overpopulation.
As such, draconian laws have been implemented to avert anachy; all crimes commited, whether proven guilty or not, will see criminals given a sentence of 1,000,000 years of forced servitude.
Your punishment, as one of the unfortunate criminals, is to work off your sentence by defeating dangerous beings called "Abductors" - giant monsters who are kidnapping humans from the Panopticons for mysterious reasons. By battling Abductors and saving citizens, only then will your sentence slowly decrease.
Freedom Warsis a gorgeous battle action game that features online and offline multiplayer - co-op and competitive for up to 8 players. When fighting the Abductors, players will be equipped with "thorn,"a unique whip weapon that acts as both zip line and a means to pull giant enemies to the ground; players can, in co-op, combine their thorns for more power.
There is also a mode called City-State War Mode where players represent 1 of 47 Panopticons in a fight for control and natural resources; it is a frantic mode of criminal vs criminal where the goal is to collect parts; in return accessories for customization are rewarded. There will also be a text-to-speech function for online communication.
With a release date of June 26th, this Sony Japan Studio exclusive is definitely a title to look out for!
