What is Annihilation Mode, the new online feature announced by Koei for their upcoming game Attack On Titan 2? It’s a competitive multiplayer mode that promises to keep fans playing for months….so how do you play?
In Annihilation Mode, Two teams of four Scouts will appear on one map filled with Titans. Though eliminating the giants is your main focus, the real goal is to obtain a higher score than your rival team. This is achieved not just through slaying the Titans but through cooperative actions like chaining damage on them and defending bases.
As for the team you’re competing against, you’ll have various items at your disposal to halt their progress, such as Numbing Bullets that temporarily paralyze players, and Paint Bullets that briefly obscure the opponent’s screen. They’ll have access to the same items, however, so keep your guard up. In the final minute of each match, any points earned are doubled, so it’s anyone’s game until the final second.
Annihilation Mode is the main online attraction, but it’s not the only thing you can do online. You can also play Story Mode and Scout Missions as co-op with online friends. You’ll have over 30 characters to choose, from familiar faces like Eren and Mikasa to new additions Keith Sadies, Kitz Woermann, Dhalis Zachary and Dot Pyxis. You can also create your own character.
All this and more will be possible when Attack On Titan 2 releases March 20, 2018 for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC.
