The game's website also reveals that players can choose from either a male or female protagonist (left) and can also customize the gender and voice of the character's "Accessory" android companion (right).

The official website describes the story:

A Story for "Freedom": Sentence for One Million Years In near future, the world will become an unlivable land for all living creatures. For this reason, people have built cities called “Panopticon” at various locations of the world for survival.

However due to a severer lack of resources and an undesirable living environment, these cities start to conflict with each other. In order to effectively rule the people of Panopticon, most people are put into sentence.

RECAPTURE: Those forced into the servitude were called "criminals", and are forced to participate in war as so-called "volunteers". In order to obtain freedom, the "criminals" fight to "recapture" the city, time and time again.

Toshiyuki Yasui (Gods Eater series) is working as the game's designer with director Takashi Tsukamoto (Street Fighter IV) and art director Kei Watanabe (Sky Gunner). Junichi Yoshizawa (Patapon, Ore no Shikabane o Koete Yuke) is producing the game

The game will be released in Japan on June 26 and will be released in North America this year.

The game was previously teased under the codename "Panopticon." Sony Computer Entertainment filed for a trademark in Europe for "Panopticon" last January.
