Koei Tecmo Games has revealed that they are currently working on Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle, a major expansion for the Attack on Titan 2 video game which mainly adds content from the third season of the anime. Both physical and digital editions that contain both base game and this expansion will be available, and players who already own the base Attack on Titan 2 can also purchase a digital Upgrade Pack at a reduced price.
Five new characters who debuted in the new season will be added to the playable roster. The Story Mode will also be expanded to cover the entirety of the season 3 anime, including the upcoming Part 2 which is scheduled to air next April. However, unlike the first 2 seasons where the story in the game was told from the player avatar's perspective, the Season 3 story will adopt a Character Episode mode similar to the first game where players will experience the story from perspectives of characters like Eren and Levi.
This expansion will also add more new equipment such as the powerful Thunder Spears and the Anti-Personnel Omni Directional Mobility Gear, the latter of which will be mainly used for battles against enemy humans as to re-enact Part 1 of Season 3. Another new mode, the Wall Reclamation Mode, will allow players to form a unit composed of their favorite characters to reclaim outer territories. Players can also enjoy original interactions between characters in the unit while improving relationship levels among each other.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle will be released first in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on July 4. The rest of the world, along with Xbox One and PC Steam releases, will follow exactly one day later on July 5. You can see the new trailer and screenshots that have been provided right below, or you can also read our review of the base game.
Taking place throughout Attack on Titan Season 3’s timeline, Final Battle’s Story mode plays through selected characters’ points of view with major heroes active in Season 3 – now playable for the first time – boosting the total number of playable characters to over 40. In addition to the content covering all three seasons of the popular anime series, developers will also include original episodes to create a more fulfilling Attack on Titanexperience.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle will feature two new gameplay experiences: A frenetic anti-personnel combat feature using anti-personnel omni directional mobility gear and an all-new wall reclamation mode focused on recovering outside territories. Here, players will have an ability to choose a leader of their squad, pick out the members they want to include – even members who were never together in the original work, and set out to reclaim the lands from the Titans. Thunder Spears will also be equipped for battle for the first time, allowing the take down of the Armored Titan when a normal blade just won’t cut it.
Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle is being developed by OMEGA Force, and will be available July 5, 2019 for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, Nintendo Switch™, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®. The title will be made available for digital purchase as an Upgrade Pack to fans who already own Attack on Titan 2, and it will also be available for purchase as special digital or physical bundle; combining the experience of Attack on Titan 2 alongside the new Season 3 content in one unique package.
