A few additional details on SCE Japan Studio’s Freedom Wars, a “recapture” multiplayer action game for the PS Vita that’s scheduled to come out in 2014, have emerged now that its official website has been updated.
Chief amongst those details? Freedom Wars is a co-op action game that will support up to eight players online simultaneously. That’s twice the co-op party size of Monster Hunter, God Eater, and other games of this genre. Ad-hoc play will of course be supported as well.
The PS Vita’s GPS and Near functionalities will also be utilised in some unspecified manner. That said, in one of the game’s screenshots, you clearly see a map of Japan divided into many sub-sections highlighted by different colours. Another screenshot shows what appears to be a Yahoo! Japan map.
