A next-gen version of parkour-centric action game Ghostrunner is coming up in 2021. And yes, both versions will offer free upgrades for current-gen owners.
Ghostrunner is a pretty great looking title. I feel like it’s been gliding under the radar somewhat this year, but if you haven’t seen it in action, it’s definitely worth a look.
The game centers on a kind of cyber-ninja, and includes what looks to be a ton of running, jumping, slicing and yes even dicing. Check it out in action in the PS4 launch trailer below.
Ghostrunner is set for release on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 tomorrow. And if you’re a console gamer who’s thinking about upgrading your box next month, well you might be thinking of holding off for a next generation version of the game.
But there’s little need for that (unless you feel like waiting). Co-publishers 505 and All In! Games have announced that, though next-gen editions aren’t expected till 2021, those who buy now will be in for free upgrades. Those buying on PS4 will get a free PS5 boost for their copy, and Xbox One gamers who pick it up will be treated to the Xbox Series X version via Smart Delivery.
Of course, there’s no date as of yet for those next generation versions of the game, but we do know they are coming. And it’s kind of cool to know that you’ll be getting them, should you want to start your adventure now.
It’s worth mentioning too, that there are some pre-order bonuses you can still grab. Those ordering before the 27th, will receive:
- 1 special katana with all pre-orders
- 1 additional exclusive katana per store/platform
- 20% discount for PS+ pre-orders
- 20% discount for all PC pre-orders
- 10% discount for all Xbox One pre-orders
