KOEI TECMO America has revealed new features for Attack on Titan, an action game based on the anime series of the same name. These include the online multiplayer Scout Mode, gear upgrades and the Decisive Battle Signal.
In Scout Mode, four players can band together online to take on the “eerily human-like” Titans. The team leader selects a mission, with options including the Forest of Giant Trees, the Ruined Town, a Farm Village and the Shohess District.
Team members have the opportunity to prepare for their battle at the camp by upgrading their gear and changing their costumes. When players slay Titans in single player and multiplayer missions, they can gain materials for later use in enhancing several types of gear. These include the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear, blades and scabbard.
Finally, the Decisive Battle Signal allows a player to call others in their vicinity to their side, in order to deal significant damage.
Fans of the anime, as well as other interested gamers, should also check out protagonist Eren’s Titan transformation here on GameSkinny.
Attack on Titan will physically release on August 30 in North America for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Digital releases will also be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PC.
