The streets of this high-tech future just got a whole lot more dangerous with the arrival of Ghostrunner 2, the sequel to the hit 2020 cyberpunk action game. Developed by One More Level and published by 505 Games, Ghostrunner 2 is now available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.
The Return of Fast-Paced Cyberpunk Combat
Stepping into the role of the cyber ninja Jack, players must slice and dice their way through the towering skyscraper known as The Spire as they battle a violent AI cult bent on humanity’s destruction. Wielding a monomolecular katana and cybernetic enhancements, Jack brings death from above to any enemy that stands in his way.
Fans of the original Ghostrunner will feel right at home with the fluid first-person parkour movement and intense Gap Jammer ability that slows down time, allowing for lightning-fast combat. Ghostrunner 2 adds exciting new abilities to Jack’s arsenal along with a revamped progression system that offers more diverse options to customize your high-flying, hard-hitting ninja warrior.
New Threads, New Tunes
Of course, what’s cyberpunk without a little vehicular combat? Ghostrunner 2 introduces high-speed motorcycle chase sequences, allowing players to slice through enemies while cruising through the neon-bathed streets. Whether on foot or on wheels, Jack will need to be at the top of his game to take down the army of cyborgs, robots, and other adversaries that stand in his way. The AI he’ll ultimately need to face, Mara, promises to be the greatest threat Jack has ever encountered.
Backing up the fast-paced action is a soundtrack of dark, driving synthwave tunes from artists like Dan Terminus, We Are Magonia, GosT, and more. It’s the perfect audio mix for this digital futuristic backdrop.
Ghostrunner 2 is available in Standard, Digital Deluxe, and Brutal Editions. The Brutal Edition includes the full game, artbook, soundtrack, and Season Pass. The Season Pass provides access to 3 upcoming DLC packs that will expand the story. There are also pre-order bonuses like a Katana Set and Kunai Throw ability.
While the original Ghostrunner snuck up on some players, the sequel has arrived with plenty of hype behind it. Early reviews indicate that fans of intense, stylish, first-person action will find a lot to love in Ghostrunner 2. If you’re ready to step into the cyber shoes of Jack and slice the opposition to ribbons, it’s now available on major platforms worldwide.
