Koei Tecmo America released a plethora of new information and two gameplay videos dedicated to the upcoming title Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle. The game is slated for release on July 5th, 2019, for PlayStation 4 Computer Entertainment System, Nintendo Switch, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam.
According to the press release:
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.
Scouts eager to join the action are able to pre-order now to get their hands-on bonus content for the ultimate ATTACK ON TITAN experience. Those who purchase Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle, physically or digitally, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the first month of launch will receive the “Queen of Historia” costume for Christa, “Young Male Coat” for Kenny, “Plain Clothes (Underground City)” for Levi, “One-piece Dress” costume for Mikasa, and an early unlock of the playable characters ‘Kenny’ and ‘Zeke’. Pre-orders on Nintendo Switch will start in the coming weeks; stay tuned to the official site and social channels for further information.
KOEI TECMO America also released a fresh asset batch today to showcase these exciting gameplay features, as well as a first look at five new playable characters; Scout Regiment member, Nifa, 104th Training Corps cadet, Floch, First Interior Squad Captain, Kenny Ackerman, First Interior Squad member, Traute, and a mysterious man, Zeke – which might know more to the mystery behind the walls than he lets on.
