Attack on Titan fan-made game reaches over 10 million downloads
While fans eagerly await Attack on Titan’s final season, an AoT fan made a free-to-play game for fans to fill the void.
Attack on Titan’s previous season reached new popularity heights in the US. Video game developers tapped into the anime’s popularity with crossovers.
Dead by Daylight collaborated with Attack on Titan with skins for survivors Mikasa, Erin, Armin, and killers in the form of the Armored and War Hammer Titans.
The “Armored Titan” bundle” introduced an Armored Skin and special weapon camo into Warzone. Skins and character packs sell like hot cakes and draw in fans. However, you cant swing around in ODM gear or take down titans in DBD or Warzone.
Fortunately for Attack on Titan fans, a fan has provided the perfect titan slaying playground.
