Famitsu reports that Freedom Wars’ first major update will arrive in early August.


In addition to having an online infrastructure mode with voice chat, the major update adds a feature that lets you attack hostile Panapticons to lower their GDPP. There will also be new Volunteer missions added, as well.


Sony Computer Entertainment also announced that another big update that arrives sometime this Fall will introduce a competitive versus mode, where up to eight players at a time can participate in the PvP.


The Fall update will also include a special “Ideology Fight”.


You can read more about the game’s first major update in our earlier report. Freedom Wars is slated for release later this year in the West for PlayStation Vita.

    What about AI?

  • tturtlejosh

    I have a question does this game required online to play?

    • Sato

      Nope, this update is just adding it as a multiplayer option.

    • Jadfish

      you can play offline as much as you want. I think you can get NPC characters to help you out instead of other players. I often prefer playing alone since it’s often harder this way and it’s kind of difficult to set up a proper game with people who I know, but hunting games often try to indulge lonely people <3

    Each time I see news of this game, I click in hopes of a release date. It’s win for the site and at the moment lose for me XD

    I think this update also adds a new boss

    • Rafael Martines

      I know that feel bro

    • SlickRoach

      This is me 99% of the time I click on a JRPG link on here.

    • Kaien

      Maybe they want to release the missing parts of the game (major updates) before releasing it here. XD

      • ShadowDivz

        I get that feeling too.

      • MaximDualBlade

        Yep and since the main missing thing is here. I want the product :D

  • -Misaki-

    This is great, hope NA release will have all these and patches and more contents on launch, even if the release is next year. That probably is just me though.

  • Kornelious

    Let’s hope this is all pre-patched into the NA and EU version’s…..Whenever they may come out -_-

    • MXC

      Honestly I was kinda hoping to get the game without the patch to see if it was really that hard or not or the patch at least keeping the original version as hard mode or something.

  • xavier axol

    have they ever clarified the online multi player side of the game? is it 4vs4 or 8vs8? I wonder if it would be possible to have 16 players all at once..

    • tubers

      I’ve been following SR and Gematsu for a while with these news. They never implied 8v8.

      It’s possible to have 16 players all at once, the PSP did 32 with an FPS game but I highly doubt that’s really gonna happen with this entry.

      • Dkmariolink

        I feel like 16 players would be too hectic in a game like this, where you can already die in 2 hits…

    • it’s 4vs4, there some article in kotaku saying the japanese are mad because they feel lied to lol,

  • d19xx

    “Ideology Fight”

    Sounds like a typical Tumblr discussion. :D

    • XerosBeat

      I lol’d.

  • 愛憎

    Does this game have single player/story? I see it in stores all the time, and I kinda want it.
