Koei Tecmo has released new details about A.O.T. 2, the next video game entry based on the worldwide anime hit 'Attack on Titan'.
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.
The game is due for release in March 2018 for Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
