Today Koei Tecmo released some new information about the upcoming game Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle.
First of all, we learn about the ability to become a commander and to create and customize your own corps, used in the Territory Recovery Mode.
“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.”
On top of that, we also learn more about the gear that will be added to the title.
“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.”
Incidentally, we also get news on early purchase bonuses that you’ll get if you grab the game physically or digitally in the first month after release. They will include the “Queen of Historia” costume for Christa, the “Young Male Coat” for Kenny, the “Plain Clothes (Underground City)” for Levi, the “One-piece Dress” costume for Mikasa, and an early unlock of playable characters Kenny and Zeke.
Below you can check out a batch of new screenshots and two trailers showing the new gear, new characters, the Territory Recovery Mode, and the bonuses mentioned above.
