Leading game publisher 505 Games is celebrating the 2ndanniversary of the massively popular Ghostrunner. They announced today that they and their partners, One More Level; 3D Realms; and Slipgate Ironworks™ will be hosting a stream event to celebrate the anniversary on November 3rd at 1 pm eastern. There will be a couple of big announcements during the event, which will also include developer commentary, community fan art, cosplay, and gameplay clips from top players.
The most exciting part of the event is sure to be the teaser for the long-awaited Ghostrunner sequel which game developers are sharing during the event. The original Ghostrunner was critically acclaimed and much loved by fans. It has sold more than 1.5 million units on the platforms where it is available including PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and Amazon Luna. The Ghostrunner: Complete Edition is currently available on PC via Steam and through Epic Games and GOG.
Ghostrunner is a first-person cyberpunk action platformer. It follows the main character, Jack, who is part of a race of technologically advanced super humans created after a cataclysmic event. The event, vaguely referred to as the Burst, has relegated the remainder of humanity to the protective shelter of Dharma Tower. Jack is assigned the task of defeating the Keymaster, who is responsible for an uprising that destroyed most of the Ghostrunners and Dharma Towers Architect. Players get to use the Ghostrunner’s amazing powers as they dash, jump, wall-run, and grapple their way through the story to help complete missions and save humanity.
Another exciting piece of the November 3rd celebration is going to revolve around the Legendary Ghostrunner Competition. In March top Ghostrunner players started to qualify for the event by playing in Wave Mode to show their skills. More details about the LGC will be shared during the anniversary event. The ultimate winner will finally be decided on November 13thbetween 12 pm and 6 pm EST. The winner of the Legendary Ghostrunner Competition will have their likeness featured in the upcoming sequel, Ghostrunner 2, and be awarded a custom replica Ghostrunner katana.
