Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has revealed a brand new trailer for Freedom Wars, their upcoming monster hunting game developed in tandem with Shift and Dimps. Recently, it came to be known that the game has been in development for three years.
Freedom Wars is set in the very near future where the world is totally uninhabitable outside of mega cities known as Panopticon. Despite humanity surviving, resources become scarce and as such, the surviving population begins to fight amongst themselves. In an effort to control the populace, the powers at be decide to condemn every citizen into a million year sentence, a sentence they have to slowly reduce.
