Koei Tecmo has just announced today that they are preparing a new major title update patch for their Attack on Titan 2 game. This update is being made to commemorate the third season of the Attack on Titan anime which has recently started airing.
This new update will add the hat worn by Kenny Ackerman for the protagonist avatar in the character creation menu. It will also add some more quality-of-life improvements such as adding a new easier difficulty which has infinite item stocks, making the post-release online modes Expulsion and Showdown available offline, adding an option to choose in-battle BGM, and more.
You can read more details on this update, which has been provided by Koei Tecmo, right below.
Includes Kenny’s hat as an original character part
A new character, Kenny, has appeared in Season 3 of the anime “Attack on Titan.” Players will be able to equip his hat in character creation. Recreate Kenny and take him for an omni-directional mobility whirl to drive off the terrible Titans.
Addition of “Heaven” difficulty
In the Heaven difficulty, consumables like gas and blades, as well as battle items such as smoke signals, have unlimited usage, allowing players to focus more on the actions themselves.
Original characters can be given the unique skills of certain anime characters
Original characters can equip some of the unique skills of the characters from the anime, allowing players to assemble all the skills with powerful effects. Skills are learned after winning a battle after the anime character with that skill has reached level 10.
Practice online only modes offline
The “Showdown” and “Expulsion” modes were distributed as online only modes. Now players will be able to practice and polish their skills before actually going online. In addition, the completion reward for Titan Biological Research Report has been changed from Titan Research Room EXP to a Generic Statement of Deployment. It’s now also possible to carry out a Titan Biological Research Report without using any Wings of Freedom.
Even more elements to make "Attack on Titan 2" even easier to play
- Functionality to choose the in-battle background music has been added to the selection screens for scout missions and past missions. Select from all unlocked BGM listed in the gallery.
- Multiple pieces of equipment can now be developed at once. Also, up to 30 materials can be chosen at a time when reinforcing equipment.
- Generic Statements of Deployment have been added to the regiment store.
- It is now possible to skip certain camerawork during battle.
