Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable Announced for Meta Quest 2

Attack on Titan VR

Developer UNIVRS is working on a new game based on Attack on Titan. It’s called Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable. This will be a virtual reality experience aiming to capture the feel of facing down the Titans from a first-person perspective. UNIVRS launched a teaser trailer for the game, which releases in Summer 2023 on the Meta Quest 2.

Check out the teaser trailer below.

The Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable teaser doesn’t show anything beyond text and logos, but UNIVRS is calling it a “Hunting Action Game.” It will have an emphasis on sending players flying around the city to fight the Titans, just like in the Attack on Titan manga and anime.

In Attack on Titan, characters fight the giant Titan creatures by donning special “Omni-Directional Maneuver” (ODM) gear. The gear consists of a set of special harnesses attached to a gas booster and a pair of launchers that launch grappling hooks linked to high-tensile strength wires. Soldiers are then able to grapple and move in any direction to approach the nape of a Titan’s neck, its only weak point. The soldiers then use swords to cut open the nape and kill the Titan. Other versions of the ODM gear had grapple launchers mounted in the hands (rather than at the waist), and could mount guns and primitive rocket launchers, for use against human enemies.

UNIVRS’ effort won’t be the first game to attempt to replicate that style of swinging and mid-air grappling, though. VR games like Windlands and various unofficial Spider-Man games (and Spider-Man-themed mods for titles like BoneLab) bring approximations of swinging-based traversal to VR headsets.

Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable launches for the Meta Quest 2 in Summer 2023. Omega Force and Koei Tecmo produced the non-VR Attack on Titan 2 in 2018 on PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox One.
