The new entry in the Attack On Titan game franchise is getting a lot more complex. Koei Tecmo has released a bunch of new details about their newest game, Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle.
Here’s some of that cool new info, direct from the publisher. Firstly, the game has a bunch of new weapons and gear which will make combat much more visceral and competitive. And since the game is also throwing more complex Titans and game modes into the mix, there will be plenty of fun to be had, eliminating this menace to humanity.
Some new weapons like the ODM class of gear allow for some new crafting options, including the ability to wield guns and other explosive weapons, in addition to much sharper blades.
There’s also the new Territory Recovery Mode which acts as a somewhat persistent game mode, allowing players to customize their Corps and it’s members with new gear. This mode contains multiple phases for both crafting and combat which rely heavily on socializing and working as a team to take on the massive enemies.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle offers aspiring commanders the chance to create their own corps, and fight to recover the land outside of the walls, in the action-packed Territory Recovery Mode. As players start, they’ll be able to customize their corps’ name and emblem; as well as assign a commander from any of the game’s playable characters – including their custom-made Scout from ATTACK ON TITAN 2. Territory Recovery Mode features two rounds. The first is a ‘Base’ phase where players can freely roam around to socialize with allies, use materials to prepare and upgrade equipment, and prepare themselves for the battle ahead. Once that phase is complete, the ‘Outer Campaign’ phase begins; Scouts will venture outside of the walls in this thrilling section in the hopes to claim land back for humanity
A range of remarkable new gear is provided to Scouts for their battles against titanic foes. The standard ‘Slashing Gear’ returns; where they will equip blades with their ODM to quickly slice body parts, alongside the powerful ‘Shooting Gear’ action, where blades are replaced with guns. Shooting Gear provides the choice between One-Handed Attacks, allowing for easy targeting and evasion of Titan parts in exchange for faster gas consumption and lower damage attacks, or Two-Handed Attacks which deal massive damage while making it harder to evade incoming hits. Scouts are also provided a revolutionary weapon in the fight against the Titans; the Thunder Spear, which sports the greatest power in their arsenal and can completely wipe one out in a single blow.
Check out some of the new combat systems, and flashy new weapons, in the gameplay trailers down below. Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle is due for release on July 5, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
