Sony Computer Entertainment Japan have been providing a number of Freedom Wars updates lately with a new heroine and rival reveal, details on the customizable android partners, and a City-State War mode that will pit different regions against one other. Their latest trailer gives us a summary of all these new features.
The trailer starts out with a brief introduction to Freedom Wars, how the people of their world are born with million-year prison sentences, and how they must fight Abductors to mitigate it. At 1:05 we get a look at the “Ibara” thorn-whip in action. Using it will be a crucial part to getting around and fighting Abductors.
At the 1:50 mark, we get another look at Freedom Wars antagonist Abel “Strafe” Balto, also known as the “Ultimate Prisoner,” who demands to see Beatrice, a mysterious female character who was rescued by the protagonist. We also get a glimpse of various allies at the 2:02 mark.
Next, the trailer shows different ways we’ll be customizing our Freedom Wars protagonist. From height to clothing, hair color and other extras. Your android partners, known as Accessories, can also be customized with AI, voice, and more.
At 2:42, we see the player input a speech line for his Accessory, as he types out, “Yes, master.” which can then be heard shortly afterwards after he gives her a command.
Finally, the trailer gives us a peek at the game’s four=player multiplayer mode, and the City-State War mode, which will be ranked by prefectures online.
The video ends with some thorn-whipping action, and the special DLC package featuring formal clothes for costumes, a great sword and rocket launcher, and some limited decals for the first-print copies of the game.
Freedom Wars will be released in Japan on June 26, 2014 for PlayStation Vita.
