Freedom Wars’ PvP Update Will Be Available In The West Soon After Launch

By Ishaan . October 27, 2014 . 11:31am

The version 1.20 patch that adds PvP multiplayer to Freedom Wars will either be released at launch or shortly thereafter, Sony said in a comment on the PlayStation Blog, when fans enquired as to its status.


“The base game (the version at retail and originally downloaded from the store) will be equivalent to the JP 1.11 release – meaning that online co-op and ranking will most definitely be there,” said Sony Computer Entertainment’s Nick Accordino.


He added, “Patch 1.20 (the current JP version) is on the way – we’re hoping to have it released by Day 1. 1.20 contains the online PVP and a few other tweaks, so we hope you’re looking forward to it!”


Freedom Wars will be released on October 28th in North America and October 31st in Europe.

  • MrTyrant

    I want this one. I will get the physical version so I can wait for a while until the game arrives.

  • Oh hoh. Maybe this will be the only vita game I actually bother playing the multiplayer of…

    • BurnItWithFiraga!

      Same here. I always wondered when I was finally gonna use the Vita for multiplayer. Till now. So ready.

      • Luis Es.

        I used my vita for multiplayer for Toukiden A LOT! If you haven’t tried that out you should at least download the demo.

        • Vash bane

          the demo had multiplayer?

          • Luis Es.

            Yeah the demo did have multiplayer on it. I doubt You’d find people playing the demo now to play with others.. But it did have that ability.

        • BurnItWithFiraga!

          Hmm…I didn’t know it had multiplayer. I guess I’ll give that a try.

      • Kensike

        You didn’t like Soul Sacrifice? :/

        • BurnItWithFiraga!

          Actually I played Soul Sacrifice online…I enjoyed that but I still don’t feel like buying the delta version lol. That was the last time I used my Vita for online. It just feels like forever since a bought a game for multilayer.

  • Fungila Jr

    hope there’s a way to set the difficulty, i wanna see if the game was really too difficult or if it needs some strategy

  • persona_yuji

    Just a few more days…

  • Lastlight


  • Rabbit

    I’m excited!!

  • Kaitou21

    Have this game pre-ordered through amazon and hopefully by the time I get home tomorrow it’ll be waiting for me in my mailbox, time to start dusting off my vita.

    • Dkmariolink

      What shipping type did you chose? There was no release date delivery option, or is there? Please inform me, kind sir. I chose one day delivery, but it said October 29th.

      • Kaitou21

        When did you purchase your copy?

        • Dkmariolink

          Pre ordered today just to get the bonuses lol… I was waiting on reviews, but after seeing some PVP, i preordered it.

          • Kaitou21

            Then It’s probably because you ordered it the day before it comes out that your not getting it launch day/next day, make sure you order earlier next time.

          • Dkmariolink

            Okay, but I have a question, did you select 1 day or 2 day shipping? A lot of games I preordered before had the option “Select 2 day shipping for release day delivery”

          • Kaitou21

            2 day shipping since it’s free for prime members, but usually they don’t specify the shipping you should choose to get same day delivery since no matter what shipping you choose you should still get same day delivery anyway.

          • Dkmariolink

            Thanks for answering my questions.

  • Tousand

    i preordered it and get the game yesterday while it is still 27th. it is the english asian version though.

  • edenknight
