Freedom Wars Out Today on PS Vita

PlayStation fans, Vita aficionados, and “sinners” around the world — the day you’ve been waiting for is finally here! I’m extremely proud to welcome you to the world of Freedom Wars, which launches today exclusively on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV.

Over the past few months it’s been my pleasure to share Freedom Wars trailers, screenshots, character art, and information with you. Whether it’s been here on the PlayStation blog, or on IGN’s Podcast Beyond, you’ve responded with nothing but pure excitement. That’s why I’m so thrilled to share one final trailer with you — one that’s never been seen before, and that I think sets the mood perfectly for what you’re about to experience.

Are you ready to fight for your freedom?

For those that have been waiting to purchase the digital version of Freedom Wars from the PlayStation Store and want to take advantage of the Pre-Order items, we’re happy to inform you that the same DLC items will be automatically added to your Cart . Offer ends 11/11 so don’t wait!

But before you jump into the game, let me announce a few things here and now that you might not be aware of:

Firstly, patch 1.20 will be available today, so please make sure to update! This patch does several things, including:

  1. The addition of the online 8-player PvP mode, known in the game as “Vs. Operations.”
  2. The Elimination of the online-pass that was required in the Eastern territories.
  3. General difficulty tweaks and balancing.

I’m also happy to announce that we have several weeks of DLC planned for all of you, including free DLC every week until the end of November! Everything from weapon packs and hairstyle additions to battle music and sticker packs is on the way, so please keep checking back to download the latest content and keep your Sinner stylish!

Freedom Wars

But before I let you go to start working off that 1 million year sentence, I wanted to leave you with one final message from Junichi Yoshizawa, Producer of Freedom Wars from Japan Studio.

Hello everyone,

This is Junichi Yoshizawa, producer on Freedom Wars.

We’ve finally reached the launch of Freedom Wars for North America and Europe — thank you very much for all of your patience! I’m so happy that we’re finally able to get Freedom Wars into your hands!

Freedom Wars isn’t a game that’s just about defeating your enemies, it’s a game about “Reclamation” — saving your friends and civilians from the clutches of the enemies you face.

While you’re playing through the game, don’t forget the various cooperative and competitive modes that you can enjoy in Freedom Wars! The co-op mode will let you take on any Operation, whether it’s story-based or a specially timed “Redemption” Operation, with teammates via Ad-hoc or Online connections.

Freedom Wars

The latter half of the game can become a bit difficult, so please play with others in order to complete these Operations and finish the story!

I’d also like to share a little advice to those that are about to start the game. As you play, you’ll be able to gradually level-up the equipment of NPC characters you encounter throughout the story. From the “Window on Liberty” located within your cell, make sure to claim the “Comrade Loadout” entitlements for your fellow teammates — taking a well-leveled team with you into combat will drastically increase your chances of success!

There’s also ways to strengthen your Sinner by equipping “Augmentations.” As you proceed throughout the story, you’ll receive the ability to create these Augmentations — make sure to create and equip those that will be most helpful given the Operation you’re trying to complete!

I’ve already said a lot here, but I’m thrilled that we’re finally able to have our North American and European fans experience Freedom Wars.

Freedom Wars

We created Freedom Wars with the hope that every PlayStation Vita or PlayStation TV owner will be able to enjoy it.

So please, enjoy the million year sentence-enforcing world, the reclamation-focused multiplayer, the League of Panopticons, and the engaging storyline that make up Freedom Wars.

For the Greater Good!

-Yoshizawa

  • im so excited when will the store update ¦)

  • If this store update “delay” is a strategy, it worked!… I just bought other game to pass time while waiting.. -__-

  • But the store already has updated, you just need to access it on a computer. It’ll start downloading on the vita automatically

  • I’m having the same problem as those who bought a digital copy from Amazon, no DLC.

  • Trailer music sounds almost like Metal Gear.
    Gameplay from GodEater, theme song from MG.

    Thats originality worth supporting, let me tell you.

  • I am so super keen or excited to play this game :D. Will take part of the online activity soon!

  • If the bandai namco sale was over Monday, why is it still there?

  • 1 more hour to go

  • For those still skeptical at the lack of English dub, Muramasa Rebirth is one of my favorite Vita games and the fact that the audio was only in Japanese did not deter from my experience at all. Just my two cents.

  • And the only thing Beyond on those IGN podcasts are those guys getting a shower or some excercise.

    -Beyond – (smacks head to forehead in stoogelike manner)

  • Nick Accordino is actually Percy Propa in disguise!

  • Muramasa is nothing like this game.
    Granted I took a little time to warm up to that title, but maybe it was the asking price bugging me, or that I wasted it on DragonsCrown instead.
    And for those of you that got it free through Plus, get lost, you don’t count.

  • what would be nice for those who have the game already to show us a video on what its like would really be nice i went on youtube to see if anyone has posted yet lol but nothing and is it just me? or is playstation store doing an update because its acting weird and it looks like the store psn has not updated yet

  • i dont think having subtitles is that bad umm at least for those who might not understand japanese will at least know whats going on . just hoping for a demo in the psn store but i dont know if they will

  • Trolls: Don’t be one.

  • Fredom Wars have subtitles in Portuguese and Spanish?

  • when will the playstation store update its 3:30 pm here

  • is there a problem with updates?

  • @109

    It depends on the person. I dont really like jpn audio and it does effect my overall enjoyment everytime the character opens their mouth.

  • The update to the store is usually around 1 pm pst, which is in about half an hour. It can take up to 2 pm, or an hour and 30 minutes

  • i pre-ordered mine, but never got the code >.<

  • Trolls: Don’t be one.? What does that have to do with anything i didnt say anything about oh i would like to see a walkthrough all im saying is most of the youtube versions that show you what the demo is like is japanese i would just like to see the english version of it to get a better look at it smh. Gosh a half an hour jeez

  • so the store will update soon right?

  • Will region 3 (English version) also get all of those free DLC every week?

  • It should be in your email check spam also it could be in there most people of you didnt receive it in regular mail try spam sometimes its there i went on playstation just now and havent seen anything yet so i guess just have to wait longer

  • @109 Muramasa Rebirth was set in Feudal Japan, not a post-apocalyptic future. Making that as historically accurate as possible is one of few exceptions in my opinion, and I doubt that there will much of a language barrier 10,000 years in the future.

  • 100,000* years in the future.

  • @119- Fair enough. My message was more fore the people who has never played a game with Japanese voice work. If you have played games in Japanese and it was a deal breaker, I understand. It wasn’t a big deal to me, and I would even say that I enjoyed the Japanese voice acting. But I agree it depends on the person.

  • @HARMONYRAIN Relax. I wasn’t talking about you at all.

  • @126
    Yup well all know how back in the feudal days there was giant demons and gods and undead soilders. Its not about being accurate. Xseed told me themselves that its a tiny company and doesint have the funds to dub everytime but they do sometimes. Also if you really wanna be accurate in media like anime and games everyone would need to speak different languages since im sure not everyone on earth speaks and understands 100% fluent japanese and/or english.

  • Love playing this on my new vita tv ; )
    works well with ds4

  • Well I guess it’s time to tell the family, I’m going to jail, and I can’t wait!

  • SUPER pumped.

    FOR THE GLORY OF TORONTO!

  • Well guys i just got my copy of FREEDOM WARS ! sooo im going to try it out i hope everyone gets theres CHEERS!

  • Its up on the store! Finarry!

  • my store dident update

  • @130 I said AS POSSIBLE. I may not like it, but it would make more sense in that game than a game like Freedom Wars.

  • And of course size of developer/publisher and costs are always a factor.

  • any news on updates guys?

  • you know i may just wait till tomarrow and take a nap cause i dont wana wait anymore
    sony said it would be the 28 the store might update one the 29 instead
    someone tell me im wrong

  • just downloaded freedomwars from psn…Been waitin for this since its anouncement…great game japan studio★★☆★★

  • i just talked to a playstation network support guy and he said the network is down for some ppl like me and others
    itl be awhile untill the update happens
    he said it should be fixed 2marrow and over 50% of the ppl having issues are fixed already
    so it should be 4 or 5 hours untill its fixed or 2marrow at latest

  • i just got freedom wars so my psn store is good now
    for those who are still having problems hang in there

  • Just wanna ask about the freedom wars theme that i just keep seeing and its the best theme i saw in the vita :)

    Currently downloading the game right now

  • Will there be a demo?

  • Here’s the best part.
    36 people since last I checked, all with 5 star ratings, and have not even played it yet.

    Bought Sword Art Online Instead.

    See you in six months Freedom Wars.

  • Finally! I was so excited for this game to be released, it felt like an eternity waiting for it. Now I just have to pick it up! One question, will you guys bring over the Freedom Wars avatars along with the release of the game or will they not bring them over to the NA PSN store?

  • Just picked up my copy of Freedom Wars and I am so glad that I pre-ordered my copy. So much fun and entertaining.

  • @Rezo

    36 voters here or 36 votes on PSN Store.

    If it the blog….maybe because they like that Nick is replying to many of their comments?

  • Can I get/buy the pre-order DLC somehow if I didn’t pre-order the game and instead picked up a copy at a local retailer?
