Back with Demo’s again! This time is フリーダムウォーズ or Freedom Wars in English.
I totally forgot about the public Demo even though I was so excited about it…（ﾉ´д｀） So busy right now and I also totally fall behind with uploads and blogging too ╥﹏╥ I first heard about this game aka. saw a trailer few months back. When it was first announce with not much being shown. It caught attention because of the likeliness to God Eater! (・｀ω´・) Yes!! I still waiting and hoping that God Eater 2 will be release in the west!
The demo is of course fully in Japanese. Which doesn’t really bother me o(｀ω´*)o Gonna try it anyway, hurhur! And I really enjoy it! It makes me want to know more about the story itself. And since the game is very likely to release in the west, a game website mention it awhile ago. I’m really excited for this!
Like many other games that are alike, you can make your own character – male or female of your choice. There are many options in character config, which is very great for the online play. Yet most of the choices aren’t that big of a difference. It was a little hard to see some of the change too.
The game is a battle action game, and will feature online and offline multiplayer functionality, both co-operative and competitive, for up to eight players. In-game features a whip called the “thorn” that the player can use to zip across the battlefield and pull giant monsters to the ground.
It also features a system known as the City-State War Mode, where players are separated into 47 Panopticons, with each representing one of Japan’s 47 prefectures. Each Panopticon competes with the others in development, where players set out to seek natural resources and invade other Panopticons. Developed Panopticons have the capability to place other ones under their control, and leaderboards will be used to compare each City-State. Within this mode, criminals fight amongst themselves.
Players collect resources known as abductor parts. Those who contribute to their Panopticon are rewarded with accessory customisation. Voices triggered during the game can be customised. The game will feature text-to-speech functionality for communication between players in multiplayer games.
Weapons are categorised into six groups, namely small swords, large swords, spears, personal firearms, multipurpose firearms, and squad support firearms. Weapons feature varying degrees of rarity, and players are able to equip two simultaneously, whilst Accessories are able to equip one.
The standard control is a little awkward at first. You can of course change it in the menu. Which I didn’t, because I usually try to play with the standard control, unless it’s totally unplayable. I didn’t see or feel any frame drop in-game. Sadly my videos, specially part 3 & 4 are quite laggy… it’s my recording that have messed up ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ damn it!! And I’m sorry!! （ﾉ´д｀）Ahhh… I can’t get over that the videos ended up looking laggy ヽ(●ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ●)ﾉﾟ
There are 5 mission in the Demo. None of them are very long. I usually take way longer to beat a monster in God Eater or Toukiden. But it seems like it some mission, you have more companion? Might just be the beginning mission too. Game itself look very good for a PlayStation Vita game. But in the demo, you don’t really get to see much either. Some of the mission maps are the same, not directly a problem. It’s gives you time to understand the map better. Just hope that the full game doesn’t only the same 3 maps we saw in the demo, lol.

Freedom Wars takes place on Earth, in the year 102013. The world surface lies in ruins and is no longer capable of supporting life. As such, humans live in underground cities called “Panopticons”, where they struggle to research how to be able to live on the surface once more. Overpopulation has become such an issue that the Panopticons have implenented a drastic measure: anyone arrested for any crime is found guilty, regardless of whether or not they actually are; and forced to battle giant monsters called “Abductors” as punishment. Defeating the Abductors, which are known to capture civilians, reduces the Criminals’ sentences, which start at 1,000,000 years.
