Playing well with others is always helpful when taking down murderous titans.
The 'Attack on Titan' video game will be coming to Western platforms in August, and publisher Koei Tecmo has released a pair of "battle trailers" that highlight different aspects of the game's giant-slaying combat system.
The game has players zipping around a deserted cityscape using the Omni-Directional Mobility gear seen in the source material. Once players master this means of getting around, they'll be able to quickly move in to weaken enemy titans by slicing off limbs before going in for the kill shot at the nape of the neck.
Players will have to keep an eye on their reserves of gas, which powers the ODM gear, as well as on the durability of their blades. If either runs low, players can always seek out other characters to get some refills.
The second battle trailer focuses on teamwork. Players can create a team of up to four to help them in the fight against the titans. Players can also invest some time in strengthening their team by going after side missions.
You can watch both trailers below. 'Attack on Titan' will launch August 30 as a physical game for PS4 and Xbox One and as a digital download for PS3, Vita, and Steam.
