New Freedom Planet Character to be Playable at PAX East

Freedom Planet is getting a pretty significant piece of new content in the form of a brand new playable character, bringing the cast up to four . This new character, Torque, appears in the game’s story mode as a tech wiz, and some alpha footage showcasing him in playable form can be found. At the time of the game’s original release, his campaign wasn’t quite finished, but he’s now going to be added post production.

Torque will introduce a completely different gameplay style, looking to offer an experience that is more akin to Mega Man X than Sonic the Hedgehog. Attendees at PAX East will be able to take him for a spin this weekend.
