During Bethesda’s presentation at E3 2019, one of the titles shown off was a brand-new intellectual property named Ghostwire: Tokyo. Tango Gameworks is the company responsible for its development. The dynamic Ikumi Nakamura served as the title’s creative director at the beginning of development before deciding to move away from the project.
Since then, further information has been disclosed, and Sony’s PS5 showcase titled the Future of Gaming, including some significant gameplay videos. In addition, we discovered that the game would initially only be available on the PlayStation 5 (PS5) system. However, it will eventually be available on Xbox One (X1) devices. What follows is all that we currently know concerning Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Ghostwire: Tokyo takes place in Tokyo, which is fitting considering the game’s setting. In this version of the story, a catastrophic event causes 99 percent of the city’s population to suddenly disappear without any explanation or prior warning, leaving only their clothes behind. As the main character, you are the one who exists in the city now when an unknown and evil force arrives. This force is suspected of being responsible for the disappearances.
Using your own “spectral” abilities to fend off the shadows and find out what’s going on is part of your mission, but first, you must find the problem’s source. Not only are the recent spirits arriving, but other newbies are also on the streets. In addition, a group goes by the name of the Visitors, and all its members wear Hannya masks. Their function in the narrative is being kept a secret from the audience for the time being.
Although this is not a horror game of surviving in the vein of The Evil Within, there are some eerie elements. The game is a first-person action game that is played from the perspective of the player. It has you battling various powerful spirits using the supernatural abilities you’ve gained throughout the game. As a result of the fact that every spirit possesses its unique set of strengths and weaknesses, you will need to carefully consider each battle and formulate a unique strategy for each one.
There are a few other tidbits we are aware of, including the fact that there have been revealed three different types of spirits so far: Amewarashi, Shiromuku, and Kuchisake. We are also aware that the game is being developed with support for 3D Audio, which will enable it to provide more detailed audio feedback. At the same time, players are engaged in gameplay.
EXCLUSIVE VERSION OF PS5
It has been revealed that Ghostwire: Tokyo will be a limited-time console exclusive for the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Although Microsoft recently completed the acquisition of ZeniMax Media, this agreement is still being honored, which means that Bethesda Softworks will join Xbox. It will only be available on PS5 and PC for a limited time before launching on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S later, exactly one year after whenever the public is made aware of it for the first time.
GHOSTWIRE: TOKYO RELEASE DATE
PlayStation has revealed that the release date for the highly anticipated video game Ghostwire: Tokyo will be March 25, 2022. This news adds another highly anticipated title to the already packed release calendar for February and March.
