Sony Japan Teases New 'Panopticon' Project

Sony has posted a trailer for an upcoming game, currently going by the name Panopticon. The title, in development from the company's Japan Studio, looks to merge cybernetics, dragon mechs, and a dystopian future.

There's a lot to soak in here. Perhaps most interesting are the countdown timers that appear around characters. It's likely that they're measuring life expectancy from birth, and are updated based on a person's behavior and activities. If that's the case, they're a natural fit for gaming. 

There's no word on what platform the game is coming to, either. The trailer promises more information on May 21, which happens to be the same date that Microsoft is hosting its next Xbox event. In the meantime, check it out.
