Koei Tecmo has released new information on the character creation studio and intricate Town Life features for its upcoming action title Attack on Titan 2. The publisher also confirmed more playable characters, including Sasha Braus, Jean Kirschtein, Marco Bodt, Daz and Conny Springer.
Before diving into Attack on Titan 2’s fan-favorite story, players are invited to create their very own customizable protagonist in the character creation studio. The studio offers a multitude of customization options, including the ability to customize body shape, hairstyle, facial features, clothing and tone of voice.
After taking on titanic foes across captivating battle sequences, players are able to experience the more tranquil day-to-day life of a Scout in the enhanced Town Life feature. A wide selection of handy amenities, crucial for battle preparation, are scattered around the camp, such as the Titan Research Room, Training Facilities, Regiment Store, and Regiment Administration office. These can be used to prepare for upcoming missions.
Visiting the Titan Research Room will allow players to view the Titans which they’ve caught while using the Restraining Gun in battle, as well as read through detailed information to aid them in future encounters. To vanquish these devastating creatures, the player can increase the levels of their stats at the Training Facilities - choosing among activities such as traditional lectures and hand-to-hand combat training with fellow comrades.
Resources are incredibly useful in the development and enhancement of weaponry, and can be used at the Regiment Store to improve the stats of a weapon as well as purchasing the required materials and high-grade equipment. Players will receive a bounty of these resources and materials with every victorious battle. To make for an even swifter victory, various types of bases, such as the Automated Artillery, can be built and upgraded.
In Attack on Titan 2 players are able to take on Scout Missions from regiment officers, providing an avenue for gaining experience, regiment funds, and rare materials—ones you would not come across in main missions. Players choosing to head out with their favorite comrades are able to deepen their relationships and gain a better understanding for their teammates; providing a greater edge in defeating their foes.
Attack on Titan 2 releases on the 20th of March for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
