Attack On Titan 2: Final Battle is a confusing name for a game. It confused me so much that I ignored the first reveal trailer that dropped back on March 20th. I read that title and assumed it was just a rerelease of the Attack On Titan 2 game with some DLC. Now we all know assuming is problematic and today’s news proves why. Assuming will make you look like an ass. Final Battle is a new game, not a rerelease. According to our informant
“Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle offers aspiring commanders the chance to create their own corps, and fight to recover the land outside of the walls, in the action-packed Territory Recovery Mode. As players start, they’ll be able to customize their corps’ name and emblem; as well as assign a commander from any of the game’s playable characters – including their custom-made Scout from ATTACK ON TITAN 2.
Territory Recovery Mode features two rounds. The first is a ‘Base’ phase where players can freely roam around to socialize with allies, use materials to prepare and upgrade equipment, and prepare themselves for the battle ahead. Once that phase is complete, the ‘Outer Campaign’ phase begins; Scouts will venture outside of the walls in this thrilling section in the hopes to claim land back for humanity.”
This game will follow the events of season 3 as well. I haven’t caught up on the anime, so a summary from a game like this might be the wave. Final Battle will also feature new weapons and gear you can utilize to take down Titans. I just hope there are more ways to take down Titans because midway through Attack On Titan 2 things became stale and predictable. I would like new fighting styles. We shall see when it drops July 5th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
