A.O.T 2: Final Battle Introduces Territory Recovery Mode

Koei Tecmo have revealed some new gameplay details for the ‘expanded’ version of A.O.T 2, known as A.O.T 2: Final Battle; in this case introducing Attack on Titan fans to Territory Recovery Mode.

Territory Recovery Mode is a brand new feature within A.O.T 2: Final Battle and, as explained below by Koei Tecmo Europe, it will allow players to customize their corp and talk with characters within the mode.

Territory Recovery Mode. As players start, they’ll be able to customise 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 A.O.T. 2. Territory Recovery Mode features two rounds. The first is a ‘Base’ phase where players can freely roam around to socialise 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.

A range of remarkable new gear is provided to Scouts for their battles against titanic foes. The standard ‘Slashing Gear’ returns; where they will equip blades with their ODM to quickly slice body parts, alongside the powerful ‘Shooting Gear’ action, where blades are replaced with guns. Shooting Gear provides the choice between One-Handed Attacks, allowing for easy targeting and evasion of Titan parts in exchange for faster gas consumption and lower damage attacks, or Two-Handed Attacks which deal massive damage while making it harder to evade incoming hits. Scouts are also provided a revolutionary weapon in the fight against the Titans; the Thunder Spear, which sports the greatest power in their arsenal and can completely wipe one out in a single blow.

In addition to the ‘texy heavy’ description some additional gameplay trailers have also been released; each of which highlighting different aspects of the game.

Koei Tecmo EUrope have also confirmed that those who purchase A.O.T. 2: Final Battle, physically or digitally, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during the first month of launch will receive the “Queen of Historia” costume for Christa, “Young Male Coat” for Kenny, “Plain Clothes (Underground City)” for Levi, and “One-piece Dress” costume for Mikasa. PlayStation 4 players will also receive early access to playable characters ‘Kenny’ and ‘Zeke’ when purchasing in the first month, whilst Xbox One players that pre-order the game ahead of launch will be able to unlock these two characters early for their roster.

A.O.T 2: Final Battle will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC (via Steam) on the 5th July 2019 as a stand-a-lone release. Those who own A.O.T 2 will also be able to ‘upgrade’ to this ‘Final Battle’ edition by purchasing the available add-on pack.
