The game follows the story of the anime, beginning from the year 845 when the Titans first attacked and demolished the Walls. The player controls Eren Jaeger at first, but as the game progresses, Mikasa Ackermann, Armin Arlelt, and other members of the Scout Regiment become playable characters. The main story of the game covers from episode 1, To You, in 2000 Years: The Fall of Shiganshina, Part 1 to episode 25 Wall: Assault on Stohess, Part 3, while the epilogue loosely covers from episode 26 Beast Titan to episode 32 Close Combat while avoiding the vast majority of spoilers that would eventually be covered in Season 2 of the anime.

Koinuma thinks development was delayed due to his executive promotion, but he is optimistic in the game's completion.

Developers believe players will need to adopt a tactical approach to succeed. Kou Shibusawa is uninvolved with development, but he hopes fans around the world will appreciate the team's efforts.
