Koei Tecmo Details Attack on Titan 2 Online Multiplayer Features

Co-op and PvP modes announced

Attack on Titan 2

Koei Tecmo has released new information regarding Attack on Titan 2‘s online features.

While the online co-op mode from the original Attack on Titan game is slated to return in Attack on Titan 2, the sequel will also feature an all-new competitive multiplayer option. Titled “Annihilation Mode”, this new mode will pit two 4-Scout teams against one another as they compete to see who can earn the highest score within the time limit. While defeating Titans is one way to rack up points, working together with your teammates will also be important. By utilizing proper teamwork and destroying each Titan body part before subjugating the Titan itself, players will find themselves earning hefty Chain Bonuses — a perfect way to gain the edge over your opponent.

Of course, stopping your opponents can be just as effective as racking up points. A number of different items useful for stopping opponent progress can be utilized by players, including Numbing Bullets — which cause temporary paralysis — and Paint Bullets — which temporarily blocks your opponent’s mini-map. Additionally, the stakes will raise drastically as each match begins to draw to a close, and players will earn double points during the last 60 seconds.

Koei Tecmo has also announced several new characters set to join the game’s 30+ character roster. Alongside previously announced characters — including the player’s Custom Scout — Keith Sadies, Kitz Woermann, Dhalis Zachary, and Dot Pyxis will also be joining the fray.

Attack on Titan 2 is slated for release on March 20, on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Are you planing on picking up Attack on Titan 2? If so, are you looking forward to the game’s Annihilation Mode? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
