Koei Tecmo released new information today regarding gameplay systems and characters in the next entry of Attack on Titan, Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle. Releasing on July 5th for the Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC, players will be offered the chance to create and run their own corpse, to take the fight beyond the walls in Territory Recovery Mode. Players will create the corpse’ name and emblem, as well as assign a commander from the game’s playable characters – including their own custom-made Scout. There are two phases, ‘Base’ phase has players freely roaming, and ‘Outer Campaign’ phase will be venturing outside the walls to do battle.
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.
