Ghostwire: Tokyo is set to be released later this month, and if the previews so far are anything to go by, it is set to be a ripper. For those of you who can’t wait though, there has been a slight reprieve, with the release of the visual novel Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude on the PlayStation 5 today.
That’s right, developer Tango Gameworks has given us a taste of what is to come. The visual novel gives us a glimpse into a deeply atmospheric Tokyo, overrun with paranormal creatures.
What is Ghostwire: Tokyo?
Ghostwire: Tokyo is set to be released on 25 March. The first-person shooter tells the story of an abandoned Tokyo overrun by deadly yokai. You’ll need to master the powerful arts of Ethereal Weaving, while working to defeat the menacing Hannya and his followers, the Visitors, and win back the city of Tokyo.
Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude takes you deeper into the world of Ghostwire. In this exciting visual novel, players will join the mysterious KK and his team of supernatural detectives to investigate an unusual disappearance. However, as things progress, you will find that there are more sinister things afoot.
Players will be able to choose different interactions with KK’s associates to piece together their stories in this amazing prequel story.
When Can I Get My Hands on it?
From today, PlayStation 4 and 5 players will be able to access Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude, at no cost. However, PC players will have to wait until Match 8, 2022, to access it on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
As for the full game, that’s not too far away either. It’s out on PS5 and PC on March 25, 2022, and if you pre-order on PS5, you’ll be able to access the game three days early.
A deluxe version is also available, featuring the Kunai Weapon, Shinobi Outfit, and Streetwear Outfit Pack. The game will retail for US$59.99, with the deluxe version going for US$79.99.
