Ghostrunner To Receive Free Next-Gen Upgrade Next Year

The future looks bright.


Developers One More Level games have announced that their upcoming cyberpunk parkour slasher Ghostrunner, which is set to launch next week on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, will receive a next-gen upgrade in 2021. Players who buy the game on PS4 and Xbox One will get their free next-gen upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The news was announced via the below tweet.


Wait, In 2021?

Yeah, you’ll have to wait a little bit to see the full benefits of Ghostrunner on next-gen hardware, but at least the new consoles should naturally reduce the game’s loading times. The developers haven’t stated what next-gen benefits will be offered yet, though it’ll likely take the form of the usual framerate enhancements and raytracing. Those are always safe bets.


What Is Ghostrunner Anyway?

Ghostrunner is a first-person parkour/slasher hybrid that sees players scaling a huge sci-fi tower crammed with enemies with guns, while you have a sword. It seems a little unfair, honestly: they should have more guns. Ghostrunner will launch on October 27th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
