505 Games finally announced the Ghostrunner release date with a nice pre-order trailer. The companies also announced an updated demo of Ghostrunner, which will be available for free on Steam starting Tuesday, September 29. Ghostrunner preorders gain access to two exclusive katanas, one of which has been specially designed for the platform you buy it on. After launch, “they are no longer available”.
Ghostrunner is a first-person shooter in a dark cyberpunk setting. Similar to Mirror’s Edge, the game figure moves through the levels, jumping, climbing, sliding and running up the wall in an acrobatic way and kills the opponents with a futuristic katana. Both enemy and protagonist are killed in one hit, making fights as fast as movement. The parkour system is expanded with cybernetic implants, which unlock some special abilities, for example, you can slow down time.
Ghostrunner will be released on October 27, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and upcoming next-gen consoles.
