These Are The 50 Panopticons In The Western Release Of Freedom Wars


As mentioned previously, when Freedom Wars is released in the West, the game will have different Panopticons than it does in Japan.


In the Japanese version of the game, there are 47 Panopticons (effectively City-States) based on Japan’s 47 prefectures, each competing with one another for resources. In the West, Panopticons are based on global cities, making for a total of 50 Panopticons. Here’s the full list, courtesy of Sony’s PlayStation Blog:
