Freedom Wars Heads To North America And Europe This October

By Ishaan . August 19, 2014 . 5:06am

Sony have shared a release date for Freedom Wars in North America and Europe with IGN. The game will be available on October 28th in North America and October 31st in Europe. Both territories will see a retail release.


In addition, Sony say that “participating retailers” (and PSN) will offer pre-order DLC costumes, including a formal wear costume, two starter weapons, an in-game limited edition sticker set, and a medical supply set.


Freedom Wars is a mission-based cooperative action game in the same vein as Monster Hunter and its ilk, and takes place in a future dystopia where you can be handed prison sentences extending to 1 million years.


Inmates have the option of shaving years off their sentences by partaking in battles against rival city-states called Panopticons, and are assisted by AI-controlled android partners that can be customized to your liking.


Freedom Wars is developed by God Eater studio Shift, in collaboration with Dimps and Sony Computer Entertainment.

  • Kaien

    Good, I have two months to play Destiny.

  • Did they ever fix the game?

    • freestylinyoshi

      It’s a common practice for Japanese games that are being released internationally;to first be complete, by this I mean if it intends to have an Online Mode. America won’t have a release date untill that is developed.

          • planetofthemage

            Your grammar was so bad that I figured you were a non native English speaker using google translate.

          • freestylinyoshi

            It’s the internet. Speaking of grammar…

    • planetofthemage

      They released a patch addressing some of the concerns, IIRC.

      May have been another game though.

  • PreyMantis

    Hopefully, this version is not patched. I want to see if all the difficulty fiasco is bs or not.

    • 하세요

      Why wouldn’t it be? It’s an actual bug fix, not just a “difficulty patch.”

      • PreyMantis

        Like I said, I just want to see because back when the game was released and report of the unfair difficulty was reported, a lot of the people here were criticizing the Japanese players for the complaints. So, I want to see what those who criticized those Japanese players think of the complaints and unfairness of the difficulty if it’s unpatched.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Mah body is ready

  • Jake_Indiman

    Wow, this Halloween is going to be busy gaming for me. Persona Ultima Arena, The Evil Within. Now this! Hopefully they will fix all the kinks out of it.

    I don’t know about those pre-order bonus stuff though….They just seem like starter stuff though so hopefully it’s no big deal…..And I also just realized that I’ll be able to play this (Among others) When the Vita TV comes out! :D

Too bad that it seems like a lot of games are coming somewhere between August and November (Tales of Xillia 2, Hyrule Warriors, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, Freedom Wars, etc.). My wallet is going to be crying after all this is over with.
