Ghostwire: Tokyo is the newest game from Tango Gameworks. This team previously worked on The Evil Within and Ghostwire. Ghostwire: Tokyo will have the same level of horror elements as The Evil Within.
Ghostwire: Tokyo was first announced at E3 2019. The game’s first gameplay was shown in June 2020. Sony marketed the game as a limited-time PlayStation 5 (and PC!) exclusive. A few months later, Microsoft acquired Tango’s parent company ZeniMax, making Ghostwire one of two Microsoft-owned but initially PlayStation-exclusive games. Arkane’s Deathloop was delayed, but it is due for release in September.
Ghostwire places players in Tokyo that has been almost abandoned by humans and invaded by ghosts. Although it is less focused on survival horror than Resident Evil and The Evil Within, Tango founder Shinji Miami is its executive producer. Ikumi Nagamura, the original creative director of Tango, resigned shortly after the announcement. Later she stated that she was ill.
Bethesda is publishing the game, so we can expect high-quality assurance throughout their catalog. This article will provide all the information you need about Ghostwire Tokyo. It includes details on its release date and setting as well as gameplay.
Ghostwire Tokyo release date
Sony announced at CES 2021 that Ghostwire Tokyo would launch sometime in October. Ghostwire: Tokyo’s official Twitter account recently stated that the game would not be launched until early 2022.
It is possible that the shift in creative director from Ikumi Nagura (who had been there for 9 years) and to Kenji Kimura led to a clash of ideas and eventual delays. It’s important to note that the 2021 release window for the game was announced after Nakamura had left. This could have been a factor in the delay.
Nakamura, a Cutscenes YouTube documentary host, revealed that her declining health led to her leaving the company. She says, “You can’t create games if your health isn’t good.” Nakamura recently revealed that she is forming her own independent studio, after leaving Tango Gameworks.
“We want the game to be in your hands quickly so that you can enjoy the haunted Tokyo we have been working hard on. The announcement states that we are also focusing on the safety of all Tango employees. “Our new release window will allow us to bring Ghostwire to life in the way we have always envisioned.” The game was originally scheduled for release in fall 2021.
Ghostwire: Tokyo gameplay
Ghostwire: Tokyo is an action-horror first-person game in which the player meets a variety of demented supernatural beings all over Tokyo. It is far more combat-oriented than a survival horror game like The Evil Within, which it seems strange. Ghastly creatures will be fought by players using a variety of spells and abilities.
The gameplay trailer shows the main character casting fireballs as well as ice bolts. Kuji-in, a Taoist practice that inspires combat in the game, is also evident. Kujikiri refers to the specific gestures used in the game. It involves cutting through the air to prevent demonic influences. There are nine gestures that can invoke different forms of energy. These gestures are used in Ghostwire: Tokyo to create all kinds of effects.
Ghostwire: Tokyo’s progression system is not yet known, but it could be possible to train Ghostwire: Tokyo’s playable characters to increase their skills. We might also be able to learn new gestures and gesture combinations that can create new effects.
Bethesda also claims that Shinichiro Hara, who worked on the push forward combat and Glory Kill systems in DOOM (2016) and is now the Combat director on Ghostwire Tokyo, is helping the team. This supports the notion that Ghostwire Tokyo will be more action-oriented. It could be a horror title in the same vein as Doom, which focuses more on action set pieces in a world filled with frightening designs.
Ghostwire Tokyo Setting
Ghostwire: Tokyo is located in Tokyo, as you probably guessed. It’s not the most vibrant and bustling part of Tokyo. There is something mysterious that has made almost all people disappear.
The player will find empty streets and traces of civilization lingering. There will be a few animals along your route, as well as discarded stools and mysteriously parked cars in the middle.
What can we expect from the environments? The game seems to intend to take us into the most unusual parts of Tokyo. This could be whether it’s the neon-lit buildings surrounding the city or the climb up the steps leading to a traditional Japanese temple. As I love the idea of exploring the most famous parts of Tokyo, I am excited to get lost in this world.
Ghostwire – Tokyo story trailer
The trailer for Ghostwire: Tokyo sets the scene for what to expect from the experience. The trailer shows tons of people strolling through Tokyo’s subway stations, texting, walking along narrow streets, and casually shopping in a shopping center. The camera suddenly shifts and the people disappear.
Now, we see the same shopping center, empty of people. The only thing that remains are the clothes they once wore. The camera cuts to a group of mysterious people holding umbrellas over their heads. One of them flicks their wrist to make someone disappear. A man in a mask walks in and holds a longbow on his back. He fires an arrow at the demonic creature that is about to attack a woman.
Ghostwriter: Tokyo will take us into a realm of mystery. Although we don’t know the details of the story, I am eager to discover the truth about why everyone disappeared and where they went.
Ghostwire Tokyo exclusive
Ghostwire: Tokyo will be playable on a variety of consoles. This is an interesting story. The game was originally announced as a PS5 exclusive, but this was before Bethesda was purchased by Microsoft.
It seems that Xbox is going to honor the exclusivity deal, as Ghostwire Tokyo will likely remain a PS5 exclusive for at most 12 months. You won’t need to worry if you are a PC gamer. It will launch on Windows simultaneously with its PS5 counterpart.
Ghostwire Tokyo will be able to support many of the PS5’s most iconic features, such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. The game won’t launch on PlayStation 4, as far as we know.
