Attack on Titan has had some good years in gaming recently, seeing crossovers in titles like Fortnite and Dead by Daylight. After being teased five months ago, the Attack on Titan VR game got its first concept trailer showing what players will be able to do when the game releases.
It’s not actual gameplay, but pre-rendered footage that’s meant to show what gameplay is supposed to look like in the finished product. In the trailer, the player character can be seen taking full advantage of the ODM gear, swinging past a Titan before looping back to take them out. It’s incredibly smooth and something that looks incredibly fun if it can be replicated in actual gameplay.
One of the things fans seem to appreciate in a VR title is good movement and the smooth swinging shown in the trailer above would likely impress many. Seeing the Titans up close and personal like in the trailer is sure to be frightening as well, especially given their large size and creepy expressions that seem faithful to the monsters from the anime.
That being said, VR game trailers early on have a tendency to over-promise or glamorize the game ahead of its release, so players should wait for a gameplay trailer before they are sold on this concept. With the announcement of the new headset and the price reduction of the Meta Quest 2, this could serve as a good reason for some to purchase the last-gen version.
In Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable, it seems that players will take on the role of a standard fighter against the Titans, using the ODM gear and swords to swing for their weak spot. That’s all that was shown, but it will be interesting to see if the game adapts other parts of the anime like letting the player transform into a Titan themselves.
