A couple of weeks ago we first brought news that the second major update for Freedom Wars was coming soon, and now we know when. Players in Japan can expect to have access to update 1.20 starting on October 16. This will be the update that will bring the often requested feature of player versus player battles.
While this update to the game will bring along with it a number of new features, the main one that everyone is waiting for is the PvP mode which will allow eight players to square off against each other along with their Accessory partners. This brings the number of characters in the battle up to 16 and should provide for some fun and chaotic multiplayer experiences.
There is still no word about when or if this update will hit Western markets when the game is released in just a few short weeks. As a reminder, Freedom Wars will be available in North America starting on October 28 and in Europe (digitally) on October 29. Europeans can then expect to have the full retail game just a few days later on October 31.
If you’re excited for Freedom Wars, let us know in the comments or in the forum.
