Attack on Titan Game to Hit US in August

Published

 on

A video game adaptation of the popular manga Attack on Titan will hit North America this August, following the game’s successful release in Japan. The manga has also been turned into an anime and a live action film, and has been described as “Japan’s equivalent of The Walking Dead.”

Attack on Titan imagines a world where humans are sequestered into a multi-walled fortress of a city, constantly under attack from man eating giants called Titans. When a massive Titan breaks through the walls of their city, the protagonist Eren becomes part of a band of young soldiers fighting for humanity’s survival. The game’s story will be based on the first season of the anime.

This announcement trailer shows the player slicing and dicing the giant, misshapen Titans, armed with a sword and a grappling hook device that allows them to swing through the air. The blood-spattered trailer shows plenty of combat footage, as well as teasing the game’s story.

Attack on Titan will be released in August for the Xbox One and PS4, with digital versions available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
