The first-person slasher will get a new demo in less than two weeks, and the retail release is not long after that.
One More Level, 3D Realms, and Slipgate Ironworks (it’s still weird to have three developers), as well as All In! Games and 505 Games (not to mention the two publishers for them…) announced when Ghostrunner becomes available and what the pre-order bonuses will be. Depending on the platform, you get an exclusive katana that will not be available after the game’s launch. PlayStation Plus subscribers and Steam users will get a 20% discount, while the Xbox One users receive a 10% off.
„Ghostrunner is a hardcore first-person perspective slasher packed with lightning-fast action, set in a grim, cyberpunk megastructure. Climb Dharma Tower, humanity’s last shelter, after a world-ending cataclysm. Make your way up from the bottom to the top, confront the tyrannical Keymaster, and take your revenge. The streets of this tower city are full of violence. Mara the Keymaster rules with an iron fist and little regard for human life. As resources diminish, the strong prey on the weak and chaos threatens to consume what little order remains. The decisive last stand is coming. A final attempt to set things right before mankind goes over the edge of extinction.
As the most advanced blade fighter ever created, you’re always outnumbered but never outclassed. Slice your enemies with a monomolecular katana, dodge bullets with your superhuman reflexes, and employ a variety of specialized techniques to prevail. One-hit one-kill mechanics make combat fast and intense. Use your superior mobility (and frequent checkpoints!) to engage in a never-ending dance with death fearlessly. Ghostrunner offers a unique single-player experience: fast-paced, violent combat, and an original setting that blends science fiction with post-apocalyptic themes. It tells the story of a world that has already ended and its inhabitants who fight to survive,” the game’s Steam page reads.
Ghostrunner‘s updated demo will arrive on September 29 on Steam. The complete game will launch on October 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Aside from Steam, you can also find it on the Epic Games Store and GOG, too. The price will be 30 USD/30 EUR/25 GBP.
