First Look At Sony's Freedom Wars



     





             Jeremy Bentham - English philosopher, social theorist, advocate for human and animal rights -  devised an efficient way of attending to criminals, patients and even children; thus, he presented the idea of Panopticon - a late 18th century circular structure that allows a watchman to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched.
      Freedom Wars - Sony's spin on the popular Monster Hunter series - takes place in a Dysponian universe where humans have to fight impressive beasts in order to reduce their prison sentence. It seems that a totalitarian regime has imposed a decree that forces every human being to serve a million-year sentence in Panopticon-like cities as a way of controlling the ever-so-growing population.
      The game will feature huge arenas where up to eight players will be able to join forces in hopes of taking down beasts known as Abductors. Players will gain access to an android companion called Accessory whose task will be to provide tactical help on the battlefield.
       Freedom Wars will be released for the PS Vita sometime next year.

Panopticon





Behold Sony's latest mystery project!

For reference, the Panopticon is a type of institutional building designed by English philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham in the late 18th century. Its circular structure allows a watchman to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched. While Bentham devoted all of his efforts into making a Panopticon prison, the design can also be applied to hospitals, schools, sanatoriums, daycares, and asylums.

The official website promises some sort of reveal next week on the 21st, which will hopefully shed some light on the project and its connection to Bentham's concept of 'grinding rogues honest.'
