This particular anime-based game franchise came out in 2016, to pretty positive reception from fans of the source material and gamers alike. The deep crafting and customization systems combined well with the fast-paced action and bloody combat to create a surprisingly engaging title from Koei Tecmo. And for a developer that has arguably perfected the open battlefield action game over the years, it’s great to see the branching out from their core franchises working out.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle features all new missions, characters and customization content that bolts onto the base game of the sequel. Attack on Titan 2 already features a deep character alteration system and tons of story and mission-based content from the second season of the anime, and the DLC expands upon that.
During the course of these missions and story elements, players will get to use new weapons like the Thunder Spear against a new wave of more powerful Titans and other enemies. To help flesh out the experience the developer is also putting in two new gameplay modes within the DLC. One mode is a territory-based competitive mode where teams of players must reclaim territory from hostile forces. The other mode is an anti-personnel battle featuring ODM-equipped killers in wild aerial battles.
This new batch of updates will include story beats and missions telling the story of the third season of the anime, so expect characters from those arcs to show up as well. The story will continue directly from the events of the base game, so you can now experience the full story of the anime in one contiguous experience if you wish.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle is slated for release on July 4th in Japan and July 5th in North America and Europe on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
