Freedom Wars’ second major update has a new anticipated feature with the 8v8 (16v16 if you count the Accessories) PvP mode. The latest footage for the game shows us how it’ll play.
There are two rules for PvP, the first one is a more traditional deathmatch mode, where players will have to focus more on taking out each other to rack up points. The second is something similar to capture-the-flag, but instead of flags, you rescue Civilians.
Once a PvP match concludes, players will get GDPP, which gets added to their home Panopticon’s overall points. There are personal rankings, and you can also check out the leaderboard, which displays a player’s GDPP, region, and other info.
Now that players will be fighting against each other in PvP mode, there will be new use to different techniques and tactics that might not have been as useful against AI opponents in the regular story, so it’ll be interesting to see how it works out.
In addition to the new PvP mode, the Ver. 1.20 update will have other new features like the Ideology Fights, challenges against giant abductors, and a new volunteer mode that will have players work on strategies while gathering resources.
