Sony's Japan Studio followed up last week's mysterious 'Panopticon' trailer with a second offering today, revealing the project a a Vita multiplayer action game called Freedom Wars. The trailer also revealed it's coming to Japan sometime next year.
The new trailer is an embellishment of the first one, providing more context. Panopticon seems to be the region Freedom Wars takes place in, totalitarian dystopia in the future. The world is devastated by dwindling resources and zero population growth - maybe because hundreds of millions are dying in war.
The YouTube blurb denotes Freedom Wars as a "multiplayer action" game. A collection of screens on the game's website show what looks like squad-based skirmishes taking place across regions in Japan. One screen is a Yahoo Maps snapshot of the Shibuya region in Tokyo, but with icons superimposed on it indicating particular in-game locations.
Freedom Wars remains shrouded in mystery - although at least now we know it's a Vita game. The website indicates more info will be spilled later this month.
