Throne and Liberty, Amazon Games' next big outing, is slated to launch on PS5 on 17th September, with an open beta scheduled for mid-July. Developed by NCSoft, the minds behind PC MMOs Guild Wars and City of Heroes, it looks like it will find a welcome audience on PlayStation.

Set in a warring open world, Throne and Liberty is a game of exploration and "massive-scale combat" accommodating "thousands of players at once" as they fight for the future of the world of Solisium. According to the game's official description: "Adapt your fight to survive and thrive through strategic decisions in PvP, PvE, or both as you encounter evolving battlefields impacted by weather, time of day, and other players. There is no single path to victory as you seek to defeat Kazar and claim the throne while keeping rival guilds at bay."
