Koei Tecmo has revealed the first details of how players will be able to create their own unique protagonists in Attack on Titan 2.
From the first steps in the game, players will be able to choose from a number of factors to make a character “just right”. These include body shape, hairstyle, facial features, clothes, voice and more. By allowing for deep customization, players can “participate in their own unique” game play experience.
Creating a character is more than skin deep
But beauty isn’t all that AoT2 has going for it. Players will need to have a lot of skill to take on the monstrous creatures threatening the world.
Here’s how devs describe it:
After taking on titanic foes across captivating battle sequences, players are able to experience the more tranquil day-to-day life of a Scout in the enhanced Town Life feature. A wide selection of handy amenities, crucial for battle preparation, are scattered around the camp; such as the Titan Research Room, Training Facilities, Regiment Store, and Regiment Administration office. These can be used to prepare for upcoming missions.
Visiting the Titan Research Room will allow players to view the Titans which they’ve caught while using the Restraining Gun in battle, as well as read through detailed information to aid them in future encounters. To vanquish these devastating creatures, the player can increase the levels of their stats at the Training Facilities – choosing among activities such as traditional lectures and hand-to-hand combat training with fellow comrades.
Resources are incredibly useful in the development and enhancement of weaponry, and can be used at the Regiment Store to improve the stats of a weapon as well as purchasing the required materials and high-grade equipment. Players will receive a bounty of these resources and materials with every victorious battle. To make for an even swifter victory, various types of bases, such as the Automated Artillery, can be built and upgraded.
Attack on Titan 2 is coming in March 2018 for XBox One, PlayStation 4 and on Windows PC.
