Ghostrunner is a neon-drenched indie slash-’em-up parkour that was very well received when it was released late last year. Not much had been said about what the future of Ghostrunner held, but a new roadmap provides plenty of details, including confirmation of a free next-gen update.
The game puts players in control of a cyberpunk assassin as they run freely through tricky levels, wall-rushing, and dispatching enemies with a variety of tools as fast as they can. Ghostrunner was very well received when it was released, with critics and gamers alike praising the game’s elegant visuals, tight controls, and high playability. However, the game only lasts for most players from 8 to 11 hours, leaving many fans hungry for DLC to extend the experience.
The first update to Ghostrunner came in December last year and added a cosmetic pack that players could purchase and a new hardcore mode to challenge players who had mastered the game’s levels for free. Now, Ghostrunner has released a roadmap to give players a hint as to what’s to come in the game for the remainder of 2021.
Sometime this spring, the game will receive a new Kill Run mode, a photo mode, a new Vanity Pack, and an Amazon Luna edition. Summer comes with another new game mode, two new packs, and a new vanity pack, while fall brings a new Ultimate DLC, another Vanity Pack, and a free next-gen update for console players.
Fans who want to see the game in the next generation will have to wait a while, but it looks like there will be a lot of new content to keep players busy until then. Not much information is provided on what many of the new packs or game modes will include, but details that have been shared, such as the new Kill Run mode that challenges players to finish Ghostrunner levels within a time limit. , can be a good indication of the type of content that players can expect. Given that both the Hardcore mode and the Kill Run mode aim to give players new options to refresh the levels of the game, it seems likely that that will be the focus of the other content to come.
Despite the lack of details, the roadmap is good news for Ghostrunner fans. The future of intellectual property was put into question when publisher 505 Games acquired the intellectual property rights to Ghostrunner, and it’s good to see that they plan to support the game in such a consumer-friendly way, and it will be exciting to see what else is in store. for intellectual property.
Ghostrunner is available now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S currently in development.
