'Ghostrunner' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Pre-Order Incentives, PC Demo Coming Soon - Screens & Trailer

Ghostrunner is a hardcore cyberpunk adventure where you become a cyber-warrior and experience dynamic fights.

Ghostrunner is set in a world which is a unique, grim blend of cyberpunk and post-apo genres.

After a cataclysmic event, the remnants of humanity dwell within Dharma Tower, a megastructure constructed as a temporary shelter. A century of conflict led to a brutal division of Dharma — the lower the floor, the lower the resident’s status. The enigmatic Keymaster maintains this imposed caste system, but the people have had enough. Ascend the tower as a Ghostrunner capable of blistering speed and deadly precision, and learn the truth behind the Keymaster’s reign.

Join the resistance known as the Climbers on their mission to cut through the Keymaster’s regime. Death awaits on each level of the tower, from the derelict industrial machinery of the Base to the sickening sheen of the Summit. Dodge oncoming bullets by dashing and wall-running, then slice through enemies with a single cut. Cybernetic implants push the limit even further with bullet-timelike mechanics to keep the cyber-warrior out of harm’s way.

You are a cyber-warrior, a living weapon, the only one capable of fighting both in the physical world and in cyberspace. Lost and hunted, thrown into the middle of the conflict, you must use this bond with technology to ascend the tower.

High mobility of the main character, one-hit-one-kill, and bullet-time mechanics are the bases of the gameplay, which focuses on fast-paced, high-adrenaline combat.


Registration for the Ghostrunner Private Beta is now open.

Co-publishers All in! Games and 505 Games also announced an updated free demo of Ghostrunner will arrive on Steam starting Sept. 29, 2020.

Pre-order Ghostrunner for exclusive access to two katanas, one specially designed for each launch platform and unattainable at launch. PlayStation Plus subscribers and all PC players can enjoy 20% off when pre-ordering Ghostrunner. Xbox One players can hack into 10% off when pre-ordering the game.

Key Features

  • Ascend the tower – use the environment to your advantage and face fast and determined enemies.
  • Act fast – armed with a melee weapon, get to the enemies before they have a chance to shoot.
  • You are a cyber-warrior – fight both in the physical world and in cyberspace.
  • Choose your own strategy – use your special abilities to avoid bullets and eliminate enemies: the dynamic movement system turns combat into a true dance of death.
  • Trial and error – you die from one hit, so learn the levels by heart and adapt.

Ghostrunner’s vertical setting enables One More Level Games to show off the beautiful duality of the cyberpunk genre. RTX-powered raytracing highlights lower Meru’s crumbling infrastructure with grungy neon signs and the apathetic hedonism of the clubs and bars on higher levels. An intense retrowave soundtrack by the acclaimed Daniel Deluxe maintains an energetic throughline to punctuate this dangerous journey to the top.

Ghostrunner is coming to PC (Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG), Xbox One and PS4 on October 27, 2020 for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99.
