There’s been a lot of Attack on Titan news in the past few months, including the announcement of the anime’s third season and the game’s new Expulsion Mode. Koei Tecmo has no intention of letting the ball drop on the Titan-hype train, so Attack on Titan 2 rips and roars its way into the limelight with the addition of yet another new mode for eager Titan-killing cadets.

In addition to the already-present Expulsion ModeAnnihilation Mode, and Predator Mode, the new Showdown Mode is now available for players to experience themselves. Showdown Mode will be a 1v1 experience in which players are tasked with dishing out the most damage to their opponents within the time limit to win. At the beginning of the match, Titans in the field will be associated with teams; if you kill a Titan of the opposing team, you’ll take down some of your opponent’s health. Conversely, if you capture one of your own Titans, you’ll be able to restore a bit of your own health in the process. If you’d like to see a preview of the action, check out the trailer below.

To access Showdown Mode, select Another Mode. From there, go to the white tent on the right side, and you can access the new Multiplayer Mode at an NPC with a globe icon, where you can select the mode you want to play.

Attack on Titan 2 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS Vita and PC. You can check out our review of the game here, as well as our review of the original Attack on Titan if you so desire. If you want to pick up a copy of the game, you can do so on Amazon right now.
