Freedom Wars is a PS Vita exclusive title that has been released in Japan and Asia earlier this year. It will reach the west later in 2014. Freedom Wars takes place in a very distant future where Earths surface is uninhabitable, forcing humans to live underground in cities known as Panopticons, where the government has total control of every human. You play as a criminal forced by the state to fight giant monsters. Gameplay wise, you use firearms or handheld weapons to fight in Monster Hunter style missions. The game is supposed to get multiplayer support later where you can team up with or fight against other people. Freedom Wars has sold a lot of copies in Japan but there is some critisism of it being way too hard, so there might be a patch later on with lowered difficulty level. Here is some gameplay for you to check out.
