Yesterday Koei Temco America, the team behind Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom, revealed the multiplayer Scout Mode as well as other online gameplay features. This was released alongside 3 new character trailers and a video highlighting the game’s Decisive Battle Signal System.
The Scout Mode allows players to recruit three companions online to venture outside the safety of the walls to slay the Titans. Players start at the camp where they can upgrade their gear, change their costumes and prepare resources for the upcoming battle. The leader of the group can choose from a selection of missions taking place in a variety of locations including Forest of Giant Trees, the Ruined Town, a Farm Village and even the Stohess District. It’s worth noting these missions are separate to the campaign of the game.
“Enhancements to the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear include improved anchors, allowing them to attach on to Titans from a greater distance and at faster speeds. Blades can be sharpened, as well as improved to become longer and more durable, with scabbard upgrades allowing additional blades and gas canisters to be carried. It is important for players to enhance their equipment to perform more effectively on the battlefield.”
The game’s Decisive Battle Signal System was highlighted in a video, which can be found below.
“Rescuing regiment members in danger and slaying Titans will fill up the Decisive Battle Meter which, once used, calls everyone in the player’s vicinity to their side to deal a great amount of damage. When activated their attack damage will be heightened, with the blunting of blades and depletion of gas momentarily stopped.”
Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom launches August 30th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will also release digitally for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
I personally really enjoyed Attack On Titan, and am eagerly awaiting Season 2. Oh so very eagerly. Are you looking forward to the AOT game? I personally am looking forward to it, and am glad the movement system seems to have been done well. What are you thoughts? Let us know in the comments. Available below are the 3 character trailers, one each for Hange, Levi and Erwin.
