KOEI TECMO EUROPE SHOWCASES A.O.T. 2 ’ s THRILLING NEW FEATURES

Enhancing the Already New Electrifying Battle Mechanics Through Experiences and Partnerships with Fresh and Familiar Scouts

p>Hertfordshire, 27th November 2017 - Today, KOEI TECMO Europe released details about the exciting new and improved gameplay features and playable Scouts from the upcoming action title A.O.T. 2, based on the worldwide anime hit ‘Attack on Titan’. Slated for release in March 2018 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo Switch™, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®, A.O.T. 2 is ready to build upon the mammoth success of the first game when it launches next year.

Among the new features detailed are A.O.T. 2’s Buddy Actions; which are support options team members can offer to one another. These options include Rescue, Recovery, and Titan Transformation; the latter of which offers a team member the potential to unlock the power of Titans!

Not all features are support-focused however, with moves like hook drives resulting in fast-paced ‘jump and evade’ style attacks and sneak attacks helping Scouts strategise and withhold powerful attacks for just the right moment. For sneak attacks to be successful, the Scouts have to remain undetected by Titans; a feat not so easily achieved if players linger too much in their gigantic foes’ field of vision. Balancing the gameplay even more, players will also be able to equip flash grenades, used to incapacitate Titans in danger zones. Items such as restraining guns can also assist in the capture of Titans.

Outside of the battle, Scouts will be able to replenish their gas, blades, and other supplies at Bases. Some bases also serve as safe havens as they are equipped with automated artillery towers that attack Titans.

KOEI TECMO Europe released a selection of brand-new assets showcasing the battle gameplay features, a battle b-roll video and images of Mitabi Jarnach, Hannes, Zoe Hange, Rico Brzenska, Erwin Smith and Ian Dietrich – all will be playable in A.O.T. 2.
