New Attack on Titan 2 Trailers Showcase Combat, Custom Scouts, Multiplayer Options

A fresh crop of trailers just dropped for Koei-Tecmo’s Attack on Titan 2. Focusing on everything from avatar customization to multiplayer highlights, these videos showcase much of what Attack on Titan 2 has to offer both fans and newcomers alike.

The first of these is a brief look at the game’s character customization options and the avatar’s inclusion in conversation cutscenes. Avatars don’t appear to be voiced, but they otherwise appear to be well-integrated.

Next is this combat highlights trailer. We had a chance to preview Attack on Titan 2 earlier this year and can say with confidence that combat is not quite as simple as this trailer makes it out to be. What’s being shown here are special finishing moves that players can trigger after successfully performing a last-minute dodge. They’re flashy, but not always easy to execute.

The last of these trailers is a showcase of the available multiplayer options. Players can take on the story mode either by themselves or with a friend in two-person co-op. Scout missions can be played online with up to four other players, and a competitive mode called “Annihilation” is available for those who’d like to to directly compete for Titan kills. This mode pits two teams of up to four players against each other as they race to see who can take out the most enemies. Some Titans are worth more than others, and players can interfere with each other. Skill alone won’t quite be enough to always secure the win; its setup so that some strategy will be needed too. These modes are all strictly online on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, but Switch owners will have the added option of enjoying them via local wireless play.

 

Attack on Titan 2 releases on March 20 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
