The first clip shows Eren Jaegar flying through the streets of Trost with the 3D Maneuver Gear; for the player to move, the cables of the Maneuver Gear must attached to an object in the environment, akin to the web-swinging mechanics found in Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man. Attack on Titan will feature multi-player co-op, however other members of the Survey and Cadet Corps can be recruited on-the-fly to act as partners on the battlefield. These allied characters will assist in battle and can deploy flares when other characters are in need of rescue. The final “Elite Play” showcases Levi Ackerman gameplay, featuring more active Titans than in other modes:
