An epic action game based on the anime by the same name, Attack on Titan incorporates the claustrophobic atmosphere and iconic, fast-paced battle action of one of the most celebrated new anime IPs of the last few years. Two new trailers have been released to show off the high-octane action within the game.
The Omni-Directional Mobility Gear is featured as a key gameplay element within Attack on Titan. Players are able to utilize the gear to quickly traverse the environment and to aid them in slaying Titans. However, players will need to monitor their gas tank levels as they use the ODM gear. Gas will deplete as players fly through the environment, though additional gas tanks can be carried to quickly replenish gas levels. In addition, as players fight using their blades their durability will deteriorate. Replacing blades is an important tactic to weakening and slaying the Titans and should be executed quickly to guarantee that effective damage is dealt.
Titans can be weakened by attacking their limbs. As players use the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear to latch onto Titans, they are able to aim at which limb they wish to attack. For the killing blow, players will want to aim for the nape of the Titans neck—their critical weak spot—to ensure optimal damage.
As players fight the Titans they will not be alone. Up to four non-playable characters can be recruited to fight alongside the player, and can be commanded to carry out attacks, offering different ways to approach the oncoming Titans.
