For those of you who don’t know, the highly popular anime show ‘Attack on Titan’ or ‘A.O.T’ for short is being made into a game that will be released on the PS4 on the 25th of August for Europe and the 30th for North America. The game will follow the same storyline from the first season of the show which sees you playing as the three young protagonists Eren, Mikasa and Armin who become tasked with fighting back the invading Titans. The trio live in the only known human city that is surrounded by 3 gargantuan walls to keep out any unwanted visitors, inevitably there is eventually a Titan big enough to knock down the walls and chaos ensues. From this point onwards you must hold back the Titans and unravel the mystery of where they came from.
Players will have gear to fly around the landscape with ease, only limited by their gas level which must remain topped up in order to traverse the map efficiently. On top of this you don’t even have to fight the Titans alone… unless you really want to, but you can have up to 4 AI friendly characters fighting by your side whenever you please. The new trailers feature some of the combat gameplay and are both embedded down at the bottom, check them out and let us know what you think!
Finally there are the pre-order bonuses that are listed to be available from Best Buy, EB Canada, GameStop and Amazon, so we are desperately hoping that includes Amazon outside of North America. However perhaps more retailers will release some pre-order bonuses once the release is a little closer. Nevertheless the retailers above are offering the Cleaner’s Weapon and Costume for Eren and Levi plus Mikasa’s Festival Costume for those who pre-order the game.
