As you can see in the tweet above, there isn’t any elaboration as to when players can expect to receive this next-gen upgrade or when people can purchase the PS5 and Series X versions of the game.
You might notice the asterisk note at the bottom of the picture in the tweet above. It reads, “buy the digital version of Ghostrunner for PS4 or Xbox One and download the PS5 or Xbox Series X version at no extra cost when it launches in 2021.” If you’re wondering why there’s no mention of physical version upgrades, it’s because Ghostrunner is digital-only.Developed by One More Level and Slipgate Ironworks, Ghostrunner is a cyberpunk parkour game set in a neon-drenched metropolis where you basically play as a ninja wielding katanas. If that sounds cool, you can pre-order the game on PS4 as a PlayStation Plus subscriber or on PC to get a 20% discount. There’s a 10% pre-order discount on Xbox One. Ghostrunner will be released on October 27, 2020.
If you haven’t seen Ghostrunner’s ninja in action, check out the official reveal trailer and then watch this gameplay of a new story level available in the game’s demo. Watch the Ghostrunner developers react to some incredible demo speedruns after that.
