The Story of Shingeki no Kyojin
The plot is largely based on the first series of anime and manga Attack on Titan with well-known characters from the book appearing in the video game. However, some new scenarios involving characters from manga are included in the game. The story starts in a dark and unpleasant post-apocalyptic world, where humans fight for survival against gigantic Titans. People hide in cities that are closed within with very high walls. In 845 the Colossal Titan appeared and breached the Wall, making an entrance for other Titans. Little Eren was just 10 years old back then. His mother was killed by a titan. Wall Maria, where he used to live, was abandoned and now the Armored Titan is guarding the access to it.People moved to Wall Rose. Little Eren grew up and was seeking revenge for losing his mother and hometown.
That is why he joined the 104th Cadet Corps of the prestigious Scout Regiment that fights titans and looks for the lost Wall Maria. Five years passed and the Colossal Titan resurfaced. Eren wanted to fight it on his own but didn’t manage. Then he tried to fight it with his squad, but ended up badly injured. Many of his soldiers died.? Meanwhile, chaos descends inside Wall Rose as the Colossal Titan is attacking people. Wall Maria was repaired by the power of the Titans. Can humanity return there?
As the perfect example of a slasher game, Attack on Titan mainly focuses on fighting titans. Combat is mostly taking place up in the air. The player’s protagonist is trying to surround the enemies and lash out with precise, single attacks that are supposed to cut off legs and arms of a titan and get it to the ground. At the same time, the player needs to maneuver his character so that he is not trashed by huge titans and killed or trapped by them.? Fighting can be done alone or in groups of maximum four characters in a multi-player mode. A multi-player mode is only available in co-operation version. Combat is very precise and vivid due to Three Dimensions Maneuvering Gear. This tool works on special gas that needs to be refilled after each fight.
Between various missions of fighting titans, the player’s character can visit his squad’s camp, repair his armor, talk with NPCs that can give him some side quests to do.? There is an option to upgrade the character’s equipment in exchange for resources gained in fights with titans and mastering skills. There are ten playable characters to choose from, though in the beginning only three are unlocked. As the player progress in the game, new characters become available.? The player can become Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Alert, Jean Kirschtein, Connie Springer, Levi, Krista Lenz, Sasha Braus, Erwin Smith or Zo? Hanji. All of these appear in manga and anime Attack on Titan.
