Cyberpunk action/parkour title Ghostrunner hits current-gen today

Time for another run. Ghostrunner slices and dices the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S today, bringing a significant visual bump and new modes with it.

Punked again

Released last year, Ghostrunner was already a great looking action title. Centering on melee combat, and moving at super-fast speeds through complex levels of play, the game was awash in a cool neon-futuristic palette.

That was on last-gen platform though, and now the hero Jack is back and ready to parkour his way through the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Expect “ray-tracing fidelity mode, 4K/120 FPS, and 3D spatial audio” for this new reinvigorated edition of Ghostrunner, which looks all kinds of phenomenal.

Soar through Ghostrunner’s stunning neon vistas, now enhanced by post-processing HDR and a ray-tracing fidelity mode. Scale Dharma Tower one wall at a time with blistering fast parkour skills rendered in 4K/120 FPS. 3D spatial audio complements Daniel Deluxe’s pulse-pounding electronic soundtrack, making each swing of the katana and gravity-defying leap sound more impactful. Feel the weight of each action with PlayStation 5’s haptic feedback.

Plenty of new-gen tricks at play there. And both fresh editions of the game will also be stocked with all of the game modes that saw release after launch.

That includes:

  • Battle time itself in Kill Run Mode
  • Capture Jack’s deadly agility and grace with Photo Mode
  • Adapt or die in the roguelike-inspired Wave Mode
  • Even the odds of each one-hit-one-kill clash with Assist Mode: add an extra life, slow down the game to help with reaction times, and shorten cooldowns to use abilities more often

Ghostrunner is available right now for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, along with the $7.99 USD Jack’s Bundle pack. That’s a bundle of cosmetics, that includes “all cosmetics launched in Ghostrunner up until now, from the recently-released Neon Pack to the previous Winter and Metal Ox Packs.”
