- Fans eagerly awaiting Ghostrunner 2’s release can now experience a sneak peek through the recently launched demo.
- Sony’s State of Play event surprised viewers with the announcement of the Ghostrunner 2 demo, available on multiple platforms.
- The demo reveals an upgraded protagonist and offers a glimpse into the fast-paced, cyber-enhanced world of Ghostrunner 2.
From the confirmation of an expansion for the Resident Evil 4 remake to a sneak peek at Helldivers 2’s gameplay, Sony’s State of Play event featured a lot of intriguing news.
Sony also announced the release of a Ghostrunner 2 demo version during the event. Everyone watching the event was taken aback by the news because we weren’t expecting it. Even still, it was a welcome surprise because it gives gamers a chance to sample the game before it launches next month. Sony stated that the game is currently available on the PlayStation 5, but we are aware that this also applies to the other platforms where the game will be released.
Along with the launch of the demo came a new clip with the protagonist receiving an upgrade. We already know from the dialogue that Jack will be more ferocious, powerful, swift, and well-equipped than he was in the first game. We can’t help but wonder what the upgraded Jack would look like, considering how powerful and quick the original Jack was.
A year has passed since the events of Ghostrunner: The Original Game. Jack, the main character from the original game, will face opponents that stand in his way once more. In contrast to the first game, Ghostrunner 2 will see Jack venture outside of Dharma Tower.
The creator of the game, One More Level, teased us with an intriguing tale trailer last month that had us salivating. Our protagonist was presented with a decision by a menacing cyber-like villain in the trailer: either join us or flee. Jack, of course, went for the latter right before unleashing his fury and destroying a multitude of adversaries.
The publisher of Ghostrunner also posted a statement on the PlayStation site in addition to the demo trailer. We now know that Jack will face off against the Church and Hammers, who have stepped in to fill the power void created by the events of the first game, thanks to the post.
We know that Jack will not back down from their threats, no matter how strong they appear to be. We have faith that our ninja protagonist will battle valiantly to uphold his moral principles. And we have no doubt that he will rain down hellfire on them as long as he has his reliable katana, his cunning and lightning-fast combat skills, and his diabolical proficiency with a motorcycle.
For the Ghostrunner’s opponents, they are frightening hours, but they’re enjoyable for us. Before the game’s official release in October, the demo gives us a taste of how much fun it can be.
Among the several editions of Ghostrunner 2 are the Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition, and Brutal Edition. The game is available for preorder, and early adopters will receive extras.
The base game and the Traditional Katana Pack will be included in every edition. In addition to the five additional cosmetics packs that come with the Deluxe Edition, the Brutal Edition also includes a 48-hour early access period, a Season Pass, and a special in-game skin.
