Ghostrunner 2 dated, wall-runs onto consoles and PC in October

Cyberpunk fans and followers of the original Ghostrunner will be happy to know that the sequel will be slicing into an October 2023 release.

Boo!

Kind of great timing with ‘ghost’ being in the title and all, and yes, Ghostrunner 2 is officially inbound for October 26th (Xbox Series X|S, PS5, PC). 505 Games and developer One More Level have revealed that date just this morning, along with a fresh trailer and info about the new “Brutal” Edition (not named after this website).

But before we talk about that, let’s take a look at the trailer, which is flat-out stunning. Ghostrunner is looking better than ever for its first sequel, and changes the feel pretty nicely from the now-series’ first outing. No, we don’t mean there isn’t a cyberpunk theme, that’s obviously still intact, but the villains… Have you ever seen a cyberpunk property with techno-skeletons/zombies?

Well, you have now.

Along with the new foes for Jack to slice and dice, there’s also a progression system overhaul for fans to dig into in Ghostrunner 2. But that’s not the only major alteration, as One More Level has both developed a new “block and parry” system, and focused on making the game more approachable for newcomers. This is looking like a world that might pull in more than a few of those, so it makes sense to have some accommodations for people who didn’t grab a copy of the original.

Speaking of ‘grabbing copies’ too, we did mention those new additions. According to the press release, Ghostrunner 2 will come in a total of three flavors, with the base version being accompanied by that Brutal Edition, plus a Deluxe Edition for good measure.

Here’s how they all shake out:

  • Base Edition ($39.99, Digital and Physical) – Digital and physical preorders get the Traditional Katana Pack including two sword skins and two hand skins 
  • Deluxe Edition ($49.99, Digital) – Includes everything in the base edition, along with four additional hand skins, four extra sword skins, and a personalized hand hologram displaying their current username
  • Brutal Edition ($69.99, Digital) – Includes everything in the Deluxe Edition, along with 48-hours of early access starting Tuesday, Oct. 24. Brutal Edition also comes with the Season Pass (worth $19.99, featuring a new Game Mode and four Asset Packs), Animated Skin (Sword/Hand), and Motorcycle Skin
