Today is a big day for Attack on Titan footage. Koei Tecmo has released footage and screenshots that look at Captain Levi Ackerman, Commander Erwin Smith, and Interim Commander Hange Zoe, senior members of the Survey Corps. In addition to details about the Decisive Battle Signal, Scout Mode, and Weapon Upgrades, a video has been released for each of the veteran fighters.
Attack on Titan‘s gameplay elements appear to go out of their way to simulate the Survey Corps experience. The Decisive Battle Signal can be set off after filling a Decisive Battle Meter by rescuing Survey Corps members. It summons every ally in the area to the player’s side for a huge attack, during which attack is raised, blades won’t wear out, and Omni-Directional Mobility Gear gas won’t be used. In addition, the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear, blades, and scabbards can be improved with materials to make them stronger, faster, and generally better. Finally, the Scout Mode lets a player take up to three online allies with them outside the wall to fight titans and take missions in a Farm Village, the Forest of the Giant Trees, Ruined Town, and Stohess District.
Attack on Titan will come to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and Windows PC in North America on August 30, 2016. It will arrive in Europe on August 26, 2016 as A.O.T.: Wings of Freedom.
