KOEI TECMO EUROPE REVEALS ACTION-PACKED ONLINE FEATURES FOR A.O.T. WINGS OF FREEDOM
Allowing for Up to Four Players. Scout Mode Summons the Scout Regiment to Unleash Humanity’s Wrath
Hertfordshire, 6th July 2016– KOEI TECMO Europe today revealed the new multiplayer Scout Mode as well as additional gameplay mechanics available in A.O.T. Wings of Freedom, the titanic action game based on the worldwide anime hit ‘Attack on Titan’, alongside a new gameplay video. The game will release on the 26th August 2016 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as digitally only on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld system and PC via Steam®.
The fast paced Scout Mode allows players to recruit up to three companions online to venture outside the wall and face the eerily human-like Titans together. Starting at the camp, team members are able to upgrade their gear, change their costumes and prepare resources for an upcoming onslaught. The leader of the group is able to choose from a wide selection of missions taking place across a variety of different stages, including the Forest of Giant Trees, the Ruined Town, a Farm Village and even the Stohess District. These missions, separate from the main campaign, offer further action-packed events to face as a team.
Throughout A.O.T. Wings of Freedom players will have the opportunity to upgrade their titan-slaying gear. The Omni-Directional Manoeuver Gear, blades, and scabbard can be enhanced at the camp with materials found from slaying Titans on single player and multiplayer missions. Enhancements to the Omni-Directional Manoeuver Gear include improved anchors, allowing them to attach on to Titans from a greater distance and at faster speeds. Blades can be sharpened, as well as improved to become longer and more durable, with scabbard upgrades allowing additional blades and gas canisters to be carried. It is important for players to raise their equipment’s level to perform more effectively on the battlefield.
KOEI TECMO Europe released three character videos showcasing Erwin, Hange and Levi, as well as a new gameplay video highlighting the Decisive Battle Signal. Rescuing regiment members in danger and slaying titans will fill up the Decisive Battle Meter which, once used, calls everyone in the player’s vicinity to their side to deal a great amount of damage. When activated their attack damage will be heightened, with the blunting of blades and depletion of gas momentarily stopped.
